The tournament is written by me. There are 12 rounds of 22 power-marked tossups and 22 three-part bonuses (which you are welcome to play as 20/20 with replacements and tiebreakers).
The difficulty of this set is on the low end. It can be used for novice HS events, but the intent is that it will be appropriate for mid-level teams as well. I also encourage nonstandard use -- consider doubles or singles with your best varsity players.
Tossup answers have been selected with the intent that most rooms will get most tossups by the end. Tossups are 500-550 characters (often 5 sentences) in length to accommodate hard, medium, and easy clues. I'll let Chris Chiego's review of the Philly Cheesesteak say the rest:
This year will be similar to last year's set.I would highly encourage other schools interested in a set that I felt was slightly harder than SCOP Novice on the bonuses but easier than NAQT IS-A sets on the tossups to use it (and its future sequels!) in your area.
The template I used for each packet is 4/4 literature, 4/4 history, 4/4 science, 1/1 math, 2/2 fine arts, 3/3 RMP, geography, and social sciences, 1/1 current events, 1/1 popular culture, and 2/2 mixed or more academic material. Please note the math does not include computation.
The mirror fee is $8 per team.

You are welcome to give paper copies of the questions to teams at your tournament, but please do not forward electronic copies or publicly discuss the questions until the set is posted, which will happen after all sites have had their events.
Best of luck this competition season.
