8th Annual Bulldog Regional Interscholastic Challenge (BRIC) @ Mexico Middle School

Post by dschenewerkmhs »

Academic Coaches,

The members of Mexico High School Scholar Bowl welcome your team to join others from across the region at the eighth Bulldog Regional Interscholastic Challenge (BRIC), scheduled for March 9th, 2024. BRIC will consist of a minimum of eight games for all teams in a modified NAQT/national format:
Each game shall consist of two halves of ten tossups each, with each correct tossup followed by a three-part bonus. All tossups are five seconds, and there is no math computation.
Correct tossup answers are ten points each, with an additional five points awarded if the correct answer is given before a pre-determined point in the tossup. We will not assess a five-point penalty for interrupting the moderator during the tossup with an incorrect answer.
The team that receives the bonus will have five seconds to answer each part. The moderator will prompt after four seconds. Bonus parts will not rebound. Unless otherwise specified in a bonus set, each bonus part shall be ten points each.
In the event a game is tied after regulation, additional tossups shall be read until the next change in score.
Each team shall have one 30 second timeout per match. Substitutions, scorechecks, and team conferences may occur at the half, prior to overtime, or during any timeout called by either team. Per MSHSAA rules, teams must use a timeout to request a scorecheck other than at halftime or the end of regulation.
Teams rosters shall be limited to seven players; schools are encouraged to bring junior varsity and “B” teams to compete. Teams may play with fewer than four players. Rosters shall be submitted in advance and finalized at registration the morning of the tournament. Players may not change teams during the tournament.

We have secured the CARD set, written by members of the Livingston (NJ) High School quiz bowl team. More information is available at https://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=27057. As of November 27th, this set was also used at the Lakeland Invitational Turkey Tournament (LITT I). You will not be able to compete at BRIC if you took part in LITT or any other event using this set.

We are initially limiting the field to 24 teams; we anticipate expansion, depending on interest and staff availability. Additional teams will be placed on a waitlist and contacted should an opening occur. We anticipate BRIC serving as a qualifier for the PACE National Scholastic Championship in Reston, Va., set for June 8th & 9th.

Teams will play five morning rounds, break for lunch, then return for at least three afternoon games. This setup is subject to change, depending on the number of teams signed up. We plan to start the team meeting at 8:30 a.m., with the first round set for 8:50 a.m. and afternoon rounds slated to begin at 1:30 p.m. With the exception of any playoff games for trophies, we anticipate the last game ending around 4 p.m.

Fee structure is as follows, per school:
Each team: $75
Discount for travelling more than 100 miles each way (determined by Google Maps): $10
Discount for providing a working buzzer set: $5
Discount for providing a competent scorekeeper: $10
Discount for providing a competent moderator: $20
Discounts may be multiplied but may not exceed $35 per team. All discounts are subject to the discretion of tournament officials.

BRIC will again take place at Mexico Middle School, located at 1200 W Boulevard Street. Plans are to have the Audrain County Go Gitters run a lunch service in the cafeteria. If you wish to venture off campus for lunch, most options will be along Route 22 and in the downtown area.

The tournament is under the direction of Mexico High School Coach Dale Schenewerk, with assistance from members of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance, an organization dedicated to promoting quality scholar bowl tournaments around the state.
