Unique Question Writing Opportunity

Post by Great Bustard » Tue Mar 03, 2015 1:52 am

Anyone want to write tossups on the history of Malaysia, Korea, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the UAE, and/or China? These would be for IHBB tournaments that we could then slot into the set for some added local flavor. See: http://www.ihbbasia.com/wp-content/uplo ... Guide1.pdf for answerline ideas - look for the country specific section. There are other possible topics too, but you need to clear them with me to avoid repeats.
$5 a tossup; 5-6 lines. I need the ones for Malaysia, Korea, Hong Kong, and China by Thursday evening 9pm Eastern time. The UAE and Thailand can be as late as next Tuesday at 9pm. Check with me first.

Hi Mr. Madden,

I am interested in writing some questions but I was wondering how I would submit them to you. Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this. :grin:

These questions sort of got lost in the shuffle of the A Set Blitz, but a thank you to those who pitched in. I'm in the process of getting all needed checks out, so if people who wrote for this could let me know how many questions they submitted, along with their address, that would be great. Checks will go out by early next week, if I hear from you by Sunday. There will be additional chances to write more questions along these lines too during the month of May in advance of our Asian Championships - details forthcoming.
