Early Registration Deadline Extension

Post by aflowerd »

I have decided to extend the early registration deadline for the Season Opener Classic on September 26th

Due to business travel, I will be checking e-mail and post mail sparingly until September 17th.

Therefore, the deadline for Early Registration Discount Deadline is now September 17th, 2004

Thanks,
Andrew

What is this "It's Academic" format that was used at this tournament in Michigan?

First, the tournament was cancelled due to low registration.

Second, It's Academic is a 5 period format which has slight variations in its make up. The It's Academic format tournaments I have run have the following format:

1st Period:
Letter Perfect Round - 10 tossups, all answers begin with the same letter

2nd Period:
Worksheet Round - 10 written questions to be completed in 2 minutes

3rd Period:
Category Round - 10 tossups, all from one category (i.e. English Lit, Bio, etc..)

4th Period:
Team Bonus Round - 8 bonus-style questions for each team

5th Period:
20 Tossups

I wasn't aware that the typically local (Mid-Atlantic local, that is), It's Ac format was used in Michigan. What inspired you to use this format?

It was a simple case of having a contact in Maryland for trading questions with. I tend to not be picky about formats used.

When I received the first It's Academic format tournament, it was generally well received by the coaches and players alike here in Michigan as a good early season format due to its relative ease (as compared to NAQT and the like) and its speedy games.

Therefore, I try and get my hands on at least one It's Academic tournament for my earliest tourney.
