Re: IHSSBCA Novice Tournament @ Fenton HS (10/19/13)

Re: How to Handle Freebies

Wow these replies were really helpful! Thanks! I think we will use a mix of all your ideas: the subjects where we have specialists are assigned to that person only, while the more contentious subjects will be assigned to the few people who get them, and they can do the buzzer-raising thing or furthe...

Re: Illinois '13-'14

How to Handle Freebies

I'm not sure what the correct term is for when the other team gets the question wrong partway through, so I just call them "freebies."
