LIST III is looking for mirrors!

Post by Mewto55555 »

This year's iteration of the Ladue Invitational Spring Tournament is again looking for mirrors nationwide! It will be written by the Ladue team, and head-edited by Jialin Ding, Haohang Xu, and myself (Max Schindler). We will offer 16 packets for the low price of $10 per team attending! The set will be available for mirroring starting January 19, 2013, and we're open to any mirrors after that for the duration of the school year (and into summer, I guess).

The details of last year's set can be found here and the set itself can be downloaded here.



SET DETAILS:

The set will be very similar to last year in style, though with a wee bit shorter of tossups on average, and in difficulty, meaning it will be suitable for all levels of teams in attendance (last year, only 4 of the nearly 100 teams nationwide to play the set had less than 10 ppb, and top teams were still distinguished between very well by the tossups whenever they played). Each packet will consist of 22 pyramidal tossups and 3-part bonuses, distributed as follows:

4 History
4 Literature
4 Science
2 Religion & Mythology
1 Math (Non-computational)
0.5 Philosophy (1 tossup or 1 bonus per round)
0.5 Social Science (1 tossup or 1 bonus per round)
1 Art
1 Music
1 Geography
1 Current Events
1 Trash (Pop Culture and Sports)
1 Extra


MIRRORING:

We would love for every circuit to have a mirror of LIST this year. Mirrors have been lined up so far at VCU and in Texas (and of course the main site in St. Louis); if you want a mirror in your area, even if you don't have an exact date firmed up, let me know sooner rather than later! If you're at all interested in mirroring, or have any questions whatsoever, just shoot me an email at [email protected]

Current Mirrors:

Loyola ULTIMA (IL) on 1/19/13
Berkeley (Northern CA) on 1/19/13
Michigan Mirror (MI) on 2/16/13
Arizona Mirror (AZ) on 2/16/13 (stats)
East Chapel Hill (NC) on 3/9/13
Norman North (OK) on 3/9/13
Columbia (NY) on 3/9/13
VCU (VA) on 3/16/13
Ladue LIST (MO) on 3/30/13
Sidney (OH) on 4/13/13
Collins Hill (GA) on 4/20/13
YOLO @ Westview (southern CA) on 4/20/13
Lisgar, Canada on 5/4/13

Texas Mirror (TX) -- March/April


EDIT: The set will actually be available for mirrors starting on the 19th.

The University of Michigan will host a mirror as well, probably on 2/16! There are still a few regions we'd love to have mirrors in!

The LIST mirror in Texas has gotten moved back 2 or 3 months.


Also, this set is almost completely done and looks like it will once again provide excellent competition for teams of all skill levels. If your area doesn't have a mirror, please email me to set one up; if your area does, please attend!!!

LIST III has been rated "exemplary" by the PACE Question Set Certification Program! We'd still love more mirrors in any area which lacks one!

The set has just been sent out to our last host (Canada); if I don't hear about any other people wanting to use the packets, I'll be clearing the set for discussion and posting it on QBP on 5/4. If you are at all interested in using LIST for anything else this year, please let me know ASAP!
