This tournament will feature the twenty tossup/bonus format using the DEFT set by Darien HS. (This set is also being used at the Piasa Bird Invite on 1/13/18. So if you are attending that tournament you won't be able to attend this one.) Games consist of twenty tossups worth ten points each followed by non-rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will feature "powers" (additional points awarded for correct buzzes very early in the question) and "negs" (five point deductions for incorrect answers before the question is finished).
