Bruce mentioned in some thread or another that, in high school, teams who were not properly dressed started off at -15 points. Perhaps an in-game penalty for not submitting a packet would be more effective than a financial one. To many, avoiding a loss is more of an incentive than costing their team...

You get the benefit (tournament play) without having to pay any of the costs (time spent researching and writing questions). Bruce: free riding on the backs of hard-working quizbowlers since 2004. Maybe it's time to prohibit entry to teams consisting of non-novice players who don't submit packets. ...
