This is an announcement for The University of Maryland's Spring Classic High School Tournament 2012 at the University of Maryland, College Park. We are holding it on Sunday, May 6th, 2012.
The tournament will be housewritten, with 20/20 rounds and a modified ACF distribution to be posted soon [one can expect it will not vary greatly from the standard distribution, though]. Difficulty will be AGGRESSIVELY curbed-- teams should not expect the standard pre-national warm-up this tournament has been in the past, but rather a regular difficulty high school set, with special considerations made for teams who are mostly new or unacquainted with pyramidal quizbowl. I will serve as head-editor for the set.
The base cost for this tournament will be $65 per team and $60 for each subsequent team per school.
The following discounts are also available:
Rooms and meeting times are TBA once we reserve rooms. It is not unlikely the tournament will be held in Jiminez Hall.
