SCOP's fourth novice tournament will be available for mirroring from mid-October 2013 through the end of January 2014.
SCOP is written by a conglomerate of writers (most from Illinois), and is head edited by Brad Fischer and myself. Previous years' questions are posted in the archive
The set has eleven rounds of 20/20 and a half packet of replacement questions. The set follows the following distribution per round:
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
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 with round report enabled) 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 October. If you are in Illinois and are interested in hosting an IHSSBCA Novice site, please let me know.
