OSPL 2012-2013 NOVICE -- Official Sign Up Post for January

Post by MahoningQuizBowler »

This is the sign-up sheet for the sixth round of the Online Skype Practice League (i.e. OSPL) for the 2012-2013 school year. This season is at the Novice level; the last Expert season will begin in February. OSPL January will run for 3 weeks beginning on January 15-16 and ending on January 30. For the first two weeks, there will be 4 possible match periods with all times Eastern: 8 PM Tuesday, 9 PM Tuesday, 8 PM Wednesday, 9 PM Wednesday. If you have scheduling requests, please include that in your sign-up. In the last week, the regular matches will be Tuesday night, January 29, at 8 and 9 PM, while the final (if necessary) will be on Wednesday, January 30, beginning at 8 PM.

If you have not already, please read the OSPL General Announcement post to learn about rules changes, particularly those regarding substitutions and timeliness of playing your scheduled matches.

Teams will be constructed once all players have been confirmed. The winner of this season will not be eligible to play OSPL again until the OSPL Novice Champions League in May. The prize for winning this season, aside from Champions League entry, is one free entry at a regional/state level History Bee run by NHBB (value: $15).

To look ahead, February is Expert, March is Novice, April is off due to NHBB Nationals preparations, and May is Champions League for both Novice and Expert.

I'll sign up for this, but how exactly is this run? Like how are the questions asked, how do we buzz in, etc.?

You'll need Skype; add me (greg.bossick) sometime in the next week or so. During matches, I'll read, and you'll pre-type "buzz" into the chat box. Use the enter key like it's your buzzer. Type or say your answer. Get points. Matches are 20/20, stats are kept, fun is usually had. There are three guaranteed matches during the season, with the possibility of one or two more in the final.

Seeing that there are only 8 students, this is off.

Is there a February Skype Bowl League? And if so, is it too late to sign up?
