BASQT II Available for Spring 2017

Postby Bride by Mistake » Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:53 pm

I am pleased to announce the second iteration of the Bergen Academies Spring Quizbowl Tournament, or BASQT, available beginning in February of 2017. This will be a regular-difficulty high school set written by members of the Bergen County Academies Quizbowl Team. Zachary Stier of Princeton and Rebecca Rosenthal of Swarthmore will also be aiding us in its production.

We are looking for tournaments wishing to use BASQT after February 1st, 2017. To request the set for mirroring at a rate of $10 per team in attendance, please contact us at basqt.set@gmail.com with your school, name, location, planned date, and estimated field size. Tournaments are expected to use a tossup-bonus format, with bonus bouncebacks if desired.

Each of the 14 packets will consist of 21 power-marked tossups and bonuses. Last year's iteration is available here.
