The Chattahoochee High School Quizbowl team is excited to announce CATT, a HS Regs +/Nats - level housewrite for the 2020-2021 season. This is effectively a revival of the old CATT housewrite that discontinued after 2012.

The set will be written by current and past members of the Hooch Quizbowl team. Editors as of now include: Harrison Zhu (Georgia Tech), Andy Luo (Brown), Mihir Paramesh (Georgia Tech), Michael Li (Brown), Sanjeev Uppaluri (Cornell), and Kevin Huang (Harvard).
Update: Sohum Shenoy has joined as a subject editor. Jacob O'Rourke has joined the set as Head Editor.

The distribution follows that of last year’s BLAST:
4/4 Science (1/1 Physics, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Biology, .5/.5 Mathematics, .5/.5 Other Science)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 1/1 European/British, 1.5/1.5 World/Commonwealth, .5/.5 Ancient/Other)
4/4 Literature (1.5/1.5 Long Fiction, 1/1 Non-Epic Poetry, .75/.75 Drama, .75/.75 Short Fiction/Other)
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Visual, 1/1 Auditory, 1/1 Other)
3/3 RMPSS (0.75/0.75 Religion, 0.75/0.75 Mythology, 0.75/0.75 Philosophy, 0.75/0.75 Social Science)
2/2 Other (1/1 Geography, 0.75/0.75 Current Events, 0.25/0.25 Miscellaneous)

The set will be played at the CATT mainsite (online tournament format) on a tbd date in November 2020. Mirrors will be available after that date. More details to follow.
UPDATE (10/6/20): CATT mainsite will be on 11/7/20, using an online format. Only Georgia teams will be allowed to play at CATT mainsite. The AQBL is mirroring CATT for their November tournaments (11/14/20), which will be open to all non-Georgia teams.

It's great that newer sets are being created, but I earnestly suggest that, if CATT still does not have a head editor and is just starting to be written, this set be merged with another or held off on until next year.
