The questions will once again be written by Berry Alums Eric Emmett and Chris Silvers, and are pyramidal with the difficulty level being at or just slightly below NAQT HS NCT Level.

Hello all!!

Below is the fee schedule for the 2010 Scholar's Bowl. We apologize for not posting it earlier.


The fee schedule is as follows:

Registration Fee -- $75

Discounts:

-$10 per additional team (down to fee of $55)
-$5 per buzzer system/ $10 max. discount (Note: We do request that
each team bring at least one buzzer system, if possible. Fully
functional is of course preferable, but we can work with partially
functional systems as well.)
-$5 per experienced reader (We do not anticipate needing assistance
here, but you never know. :-) )

The questions for this tournament will once again be written by the
excellent team of Eric Emmett and Chris Silvers, both former Berry
captains. Please have your registration (# teams, player names, etc.)
to us by no later than February 6, 2010. Entry is first come first
serve.

Please e-mail us @ [email protected] with any questions or
with your registration information. We look forward to hearing from
you!!

Will there be awards/trophies for the top 3-4 teams, or only the traveling trophy for the Champion?

It is likely that we will provide additional awards for the 2nd and 3rd place finishers along with the Championship Cup. However since the Admissions Department takes care of the majority of the costs involved in running Scholars Bowl, we will have to make sure that the additional cost is acceptable to them. We don't perceive that as being a problem though.

We've been gradually increasing the size of the field over the past few years as we've been attracting teams from outside GA. In the past, we've topped out between 15-20 teams. Last year we had 25-30. This year we would like to see somewhere between 30-40 teams. We would love to have teams from Florida attend. We love hosting this tournament and we hope that it will become one of the premier events in the South in the coming years.

The final field update is posted above. There are still 3 teams that have not confirmed (Pensacola, Hardin Valley and Dalton), but we will operate under the premise that they will be attending unless told otherwise. If for some reason one of those 3 cannot attend, we need to know ASAP.

Registration will begin @ 8 am in the Science Building. That's across the street from the Krannert Center. We had to relocate this year.

Congratulations to Walton on a job well done yesterday! I didn't get to see West Knox/Farragut play, and I had personally never heard of them before, but apparently they are a very strong team. And yesterday I got to see more than ever just how good William (from Alpharetta) and Abubakar (from Walton) are -- extremely fast on the buzzer and extremely impressive in terms of depth of knowledge. They are probably the two best individual players in Georgia this year, and they are both Juniors.
