You are invited to our Annual JV Fall Tournament to be held on Nov. 1, 2014 at North Kansas City High School. We are hoping to host 28 teams. The novice tournament will be a mirror of a set produced by the Scholastic Community Outreach Program (SCOP) of Illinois, which is specially written to appeal to newer or inexperienced players. Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses should a team answer a tossup correctly. The tournament will use 15-point "powers" (reward for an early enough buzz), There will not be any -5 point "negs" (penalty should a player buzz in during the question and answer incorrectly). Bonuses will rebound. There is no computational math in the SCOP Novice Tournament set. All of SCOP's previous sets are posted publicly at quizbowlpackets.com. You can search for "SCOP" on the main page to find them.
The tournament, since it is a novice set, will have eligibility restrictions. These restrictions are basically the same as other novice tournaments:
- All freshmen can play.
- Sophomores can play if they did not sparticipate in district/state or national play
- Juniors can play if this is their first year of quizbowl.
- No seniors can play.
We are hoping to be finished around 4:00 with only championship left to play. There are many restaurants around: Subway, Dairy Queen, Lucky Dragon, Pizza Hut, Wendy’s, and just east on Armour Road, Burger King and Arby’s.
