The University of Louisiana at Lafayette Club for Academic Competition is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a mirror of Michigan's MLK tournament on Saturday, January 16, 2016. The venue and fee schedule are not yet known, but chances are fees will be pretty much the same as usual and the tournament will take place in Judice-Rickels Hall. The building is situated directly behind our usual location, Moody Hall, so parking directions won't change. This is the same building we used for Penn Bowl 2014 for those who attended that tournament. The tournament will probably also be scheduled to begin at 9:00 AM.
This will be a regular difficulty college tournament. Copy/pasting from the original announcement:
"We will produce 15 packets of difficulty that uses Penn Bowl 2014 as a start point but ends up more accessible, on a slightly skewed "bell-curve" scheme of difficulty, in which every packet will have several tossups with easier-than-average answerlines, and maybe one or two tossups with answerlines of harder-than-average difficulty. We will work hard to provide all of our bonuses with true easy parts answerable by the majority of teams playing.
The distribution for the tournament will be as follows:
4/4 Literature - 1/1 each American, British, and European (including classical), 1/1 Non-Western, transnational, and more of the previous three
4/4 History - 1/1 each American and World, 1/0 or 0/1 British, 1/2 or 2/1 other European (including Classical)
4/4 Science - 1/1 each Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, 1/1 Other Science (Math, Earth Science, Astronomy, Computer Science)
3/3 RMP - 1/1 each Religion, Mythology, and Philosophy
3/3 Arts - 1/1 each Painting, Classical Music, 1/0 or 0/1 Other Visual Arts (Film, Sculpture, Architecture, Photography, Misc.), 1/0 or 0/1 Other Auditory Arts (Opera, Ballet, Jazz, Misc.)
1/1 Social Science
1/1 Geography, Current Events, Other"
I'll post more info when it's available.
