I'll echo this. Myself and a few other retired quizbowlers are thinking about playing this but think it would be rather uncouth if we were the only non high-schoolers in the field (assuming this is in fact Open).

At the very least I've signed up, although my teammates, while college-aged, have five games of quiz bowl played between the three of them.

Does "teams a maximum of five players" mean it's 5v5? Or 4v4?
