I will probably offer to moderate anyway but... are the rules concerning open teams the same as at the original US sites?

Er, sorry it took me so long to respond. Yes, the rule is the same, and you can find the rule here.

This happened and was a ton of fun. Oxford A cleared the field with 9-0, with Oxford C and Old London Town both finishing 7-2. Stats forthcoming.

Many thanks to the James and Ashley and the rest of Warwick for their organisational prowess and dealing well with a last minute/unannounced team drop!

And here are the stats: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... nd_robin/2

Note: I think this marks the first time a UK student team has bettered 20ppb at a regular difficulty tournament!
