November Novice at Southwestern H.S. (11/6/21 - CERES)

Post by mhasquin »

Southwestern High School (Piasa, Illinois) will be hosting the November Novice on November 6, 2021. This will be an in-person event.

Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses. The tournament will use 15-point "powers" (reward for an early buzz within the power-marked section). Negs will not be used. Bonuses will rebound.

We're currently looking for a field of 18 teams. Expansion to 24 is possible if there is interest and staff available.

Marshall Mullins will be directing this tournament.

This goal of this tournament is to provide an introductory Scholastic Bowl experience for new players and JV/novice teams.

Fees
Fees are $50 for each team.
Make checks payable to Southwestern CUSD #9, and you may pay through mail (Southwestern High School, 8226 RT. 111, Piasa, IL 62079) or on-site when you check-in at the tournament.

Question Set
We will be mirroring Ceres 2021.

A concession stand will be available on site for teams. There are no practical options to leave the campus during lunch break.

Please register through this link: November Novice Registration Form

Rules
Rounds are 20/20 with one tiebreaker tossup if needed.
We will use powers (15). Five players are allowed per team.
We will use bouncebacks, and substitutes are allowed after each game only (rules are subject to change based on future field size).
Timing will be 5 seconds after the question to buzz, 5 seconds to give your answer once you buzz, and 5 seconds to confer and answer on bonuses.

If you have questions, please email Matt Hasquin at [email protected]
