We'll be using the Prison Bowl XI set. We will use untimed rounds consisting of 20 tossups with 20 three-part, 30-point bonuses. There will be powers (15) and negs (-5). We will have bracketed round-robin preliminary rounds and re-bracketed round-robin playoff rounds (exact details of which to be determined later). Teams can expect 7 rounds at a minimum. There will be prizes for top teams and (hopefully!) individuals.

This is awesome! As a long time player of the Middle TN circuit, I'm really excited about a team trying to bring standard quizbowl practices back to the region. Look forward to attending!
