This is an announcement for a Byzantine History side event at Chicago Open to be written by me. It's not just Byzantine history, but also things that affected Byzantium (Barbarian tribes, movements, church councils, ETC)
4 rounds of 20 questions, no bonuses, all will be power marked
8 Byzantium
4- slavic countries and people
2- Barbarians/ other countries affecting Byzantium
2- Religious/ political movements
2- Military
1- Art
1- Other

This will be held on whenever the nice people at CO decide to let me host this

Right now I have one and a half, and I have the answer lines for 3 rounds. I can expand this, however.

Whatever you'd like; I was just curious. Is this tossups only or tossup/bonus?

Re: Byzantine history side tournament at CO

Postby No Rules Westbrook » Tue May 08, 2012 8:19 pm

See my original CO post - stating that: The only thing side events I'm currently giving official sanction to are the history doubles and Will Nediger's literature event, which will have dibs on the two premier Sunday spots (history before literature).

Obviously, I have no power or wont to stop people from coalescing and playing some event as they will, but refer to the second post in the CO Thread for the "official schedule"

Left here since birth...forgotten in the river of time...I've had an eternity to...ponder the meaning of things...and now I have an answer!
