The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format. We will be using "Powers," or 15 points for an early correct answer, but we will NOT be using "Negs" or "Interrupts" (-5 for early incorrect answers) Bonuses will be three parts, but will not rebound.
There are two targets for this tournament's field: 1 - For developing teams to get a chance to play on a good easier-than-regular-difficulty set early in the year. 2 - For established teams and larger schools to give their younger players a chance to get acclimated to the high school quiz bowl canon.
