The Ladue Academic Team is pleased to announce that we will be holding a quizbowl tournament for novice teams on November 9th, 2013, at Ladue High School in St. Louis, Missouri. To register, or if you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
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. A copy of last year's SCOP Novice set can be found here. It should be noted that the Tuscumbia Fall Academic Tournament is also using the same set of questions, but since the two tournaments are on the same day, there should not be a problem with teams playing the set twice.
As this is a novice tournament, there will be limited eligibility -- only students who are either freshmen or sophomores, or juniors and seniors who are in their first year of high school quizbowl (i.e. those who have not played a high school tournament before October 1, 2013) will be eligible to play. However, if you have any players on your team who are not novices, but would still like to come to the tournament, we are in need of volunteers to help staff. Anyone who helps staff will get a free lunch, and your team will get a discount on your entry fee (see below). So, convince all your varsity players to come along and help out!
