SCOP Novice seeking mirrors (Fall 2012)

Post by TheDoctor »

The third iteration of the SCOP Novice tournament is seeking mirrors for Fall of 2012 (the beginning of October through the end of January).

SCOP is written by a conglomerate of writers, primarily in Illinois, for play by new and very inexperienced players. For a more objective assessment of the set's difficulty, previous years' questions are posted in the High School Quiz Bowl Packet Archive.

The set has eleven rounds of 20/20 and a half packet of replacement questions. The set follows the following distribution per round:

4/4 Literature
5/5 Science (including 1/1 Noncomputational Math)
5/5 History (including 1/1 Current Events or Geography)
2/2 Religion and Mythology
1/1 Philosophy and Social Science
2/2 Fine Arts
1/1 Trash

The mirror fee outside of Illinois is $10 per team (including house teams). We offer a $1/team discount for complete statistics (including individual statistics, and preferably in SQBS format) posted promptly after your tournament. There is an additional discount of $2/team if you choose to scan and e-mail or snail mail your raw scoresheets to the editors for the calculation of conversion statistics by topic.

In Illinois, this set will be used exclusively for the IHSSBCA Novice Tournaments, which will be held in late October. If you are in Illinois and are interested in hosting an IHSSBCA Novice site, please let me know.

Prospective mirror hosts, or anyone with questions about the set, may contact me at [email protected].

Edit: Reworded discounts for clarity and to benefit all involved.

It will. We'd been in communications with a possible late mirror, but that seems to have fallen through. The set should be posted soon.
