Fort Osage Novice Set II (FONS II) available for mirrors!

Postby FortOsageScholarBowl » Tue Aug 23, 2016 9:27 am

Fort Osage High School in Independence, Missouri is offering its Novice Set II to mirror for the 2016-17 season (FONS II). The set is regular difficulty but is aimed at Novice players (Freshmen and Sophomores), and will largely stick to that canon. It will be available from November 2016-June 2017. It will consist of 11 packets of 20/20 (tossups/bonuses) with 1 tossup at the end as a tiebreaker (each packet will consist of 21 total tossups/20 bonuses). This set is simply another option for teams looking at a Novice competition for the 2016-17 school year (that is aimed at new high school players). Last year's set is here: http://www.quizbowlpackets.com/1836/. The set is powermarked and will consist of tossups of 5-7 lines (most will be 6 lines). The tossups should be easier this year but still on the more difficult side of Novice. The distribution is as follows:

DISTRIBUTION:

4/4 Literature
4/4 History/Soc. Studies
3/3 Science
3/3 Geography
2/2 Fine Arts
2/2 Religion/Mythology
1/1 Non-comp. Math
1/1 Current Events
1/1 Trash

(Note: there are only 20 bonuses per round, so a Literature Or Hist/SS bonus will be left off on each packet)

COST:
The cost is $10 per team with a $1 discount per team for any host who provides detailed SQBS statistics.

After a rough road this year, FONS II is complete if anyone would like a late-season Novice Tournament or a set to use as practice. Rest assured, lessons have been learned and we are planning on a FONS III next season.
