FORMAT:Adam Silverman wrote:The 2013 Brookwood Invitational Scholars Bowl is seeking mirrors for the 2013-2014 school year. Next year’s set will be entirely written and edited by myself, Adam Silverman, Mostafa Bhuiyan, Brady Weiler, and Kunal Naik. Between us, we have written thousands of quizbowl questions, and I personally have edited three high school sets in the past, so you can be sure of a high-quality set of questions.
The Earlybird tournament will use mACF format. In particular, Earlybird will be a 4-on-4 tournament; matches will be 20/20, with sudden-death tiebreakers; bonuses are three parts read one at a time, and there will be no bouncebacks.
The set is not powermarked.
In terms of tournament structure, we usually use some form of round robin, followed by rebracketing and an ACF-format final.
WHO WE'RE TRYING TO ATTRACT:
The University of Illinois ABT is pleased to invite all interested teams from any state to attend this tournament. In the past, we've attracted teams from not just Illinois but also Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, and Missouri; we hope those teams will return and bring their state compatriots. Everyone will have the chance to play good teams on good questions. We're also interested in receiving second, third, ... teams from the same school.
The base registration fee is $65. Teams may receive a $5 discount for each working buzzer set they bring up to $10, for a minimum registration fee of $55 per team ($45 should staffers be needed). Subsequent teams after the first will be $55. Should we require staffers from schools they will receive a $10 discount per staffer off of their overall registration team.
If you're interested in registration or have any other questions in general, please e-mail me, Austin Listerud, at austinlisterud at gmail dot com. Please use "Earlybird" as your subject line.
