I am happy to announce the production of the Richard Montgomery-Beavercreek Collaborative Tournament (RMBCT).

Beavercreek and Richard Montgomery will be collaborating this year to produce a 14 packet regular HS difficulty set that will be available for mirrors starting October 1st, 2017 (EDIT: As of September 14th, the set is available for mirroring immediately). The set will remain available for mirrors throughout the 2017-2018 competition season.

I will be overseeing the production of the set and serving as head editor. NourEddine Hijazi, formerly of Sidney, and Ellen Spence, of Beavercreek, will also be helping with the editing process.

The set will be power marked, and tossups will be between 5-6 lines of 11 point Times New Roman font. In addition to the 20/20, an additional tossup will be provided in each packet if a tiebreaker tossup is needed.

Distribution:

4/4 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 Euro/World, 1/1 Misc)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 1/1 Euro, 1/1 World, 1/1 Misc)
4/4 Science (1/1 Bio, 1/1 Chem, 1/1 Phys, 1/1 Misc including Math)
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Visual, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Misc)
1/1 Mythology
1/1 Religion
1/1 Philosophy and Social Science
1/1 Geography
1/1 Trash and Current Events

The mirror fee will be $10 per team at your site. If interested, please e-mail me at OHAcademicCompetition@gmail.com or PM me here.

The initial post has been updated to provide all of the information about the collaboration between Richard Montgomery and Beavercreek on this set, as well as the name change of the set since Beavercreek Fall obviously would not work any longer.

Interested hosts, please feel free to contact me, and if you have any questions at all, I am happy to work with you to get you whatever answers you need!

I have no plans to publish a sample packet for RMBCT. Prospective host sites can be in touch with me about samples privately if they wish or anyone is free to review projects I have worked on previously (FKT, OAC Regionals/State, etc.).

Just to keep everyone up to date - all questions for RMBCT have been written and went through the first round of editing. Packetizing and full blown editing are now taking place prior to play testing.
