My School *Perhaps* host a intramural QB.

Post by Realdeo » Sat Jan 05, 2013 8:58 am

So I suggested to my school (via my English Club) to host intramural QB. My EC teacher was quiet interested. My question is, which format I should use.
Remember we are in Indonesia. And Indonesia *NEVER PLAY US-STYLE QB* (Those US-Style that I am talking about is like NAQT and ACF) . I honestly interested to use like your HISTORY QB. They had 4 quarters and have nice and simple rule and quiet familiar in our face (Thanks to our TV)
Seriously guys, I need your help. I may be will propose this one to my teacher on January 7th. So, I'm crossing finger you respond quickly.
(The topic: I believe History,Science,Pop Culture,Sport,Computer,General Knowledge,Math,bit Literature because Indonesia people are no Literature Addict)

If you want to use the history set, that's fine, although it basically only has history and is pretty Americanist.

Could the VHSL sets be utilized for this?

I think the VHSL sets would probably be best for these, as they're of manageable difficulty and the rules are simple to understand, probably simpler than the four-quarter history bowl sets.

I will consider that. As for clarification, we only use the history QB rule, the question will be modified with our topic. Talking about VHSL, i had see it in QBWiki. Is it Pyramidal or Quick Recall Question?

It is pyramidal. I think sample questions are available at HSAPQ's website.

(note: They are made for Virginia high schools, and I am rather unclear how/if they can be used for other purposes)

I mean, the old ones are available at HSAPQ for free, so unless VHSL has a problem with them being used for an Indonesian quiz bowl league, I can't see why they can't be used, unless there's something I'm missing.There should be enough free packets there to last quite a while, even only using VHSL regular season questions.

Quizbowl is generally less fun when people already know the answers.

That's true. Unless they get a set by purchasing one that hasn't been released yet though, I can't see how that problem can be prevented.
