Cornell Quizbowl and Columbia Quizbowl are excited to announce C++, a medium difficulty/2 dot question set to be played Winter 2022. This set will be jointly written by members of the Cornell and Columbia University Quizbowl Clubs. We plan to produce 14 packets of 20/20, plus tiebreakers. Tossups will be capped at 7 lines in 10 point Times New Roman pre-powermarking, and bonuses will be capped at 8.

Dennis Beeby: History
Dan Ni: Chemistry, Other Science
Allan Lee: Biology
Geoffrey Wu: Physics, Other Science
Geoffrey Chen: Social Science
William Groger: Religion, Mythology
Benjamin McAvoy-Bickford: Geo/CE/Other

The set distribution is as follows:

4/4 Literature: American, British + Canada/NZ/Australia, European/Classical, World/Other (misc, criticism, nonfiction/essays)
4/4 Science: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Other
4/4 History: American, British/European, World, Ancient/Other/Historiography

Is this still happening? Doesn't seem to be a lot of announcements of mirrors and so on.

It is still happening. Some mirrors (such as the Midwest) are not finalized due to likely being played early next year. However, indeed, we are still looking for hosts in many of these regions, so potential hosts are still encouraged to reach out to us!
