If your top players remember all the questions in your old practice packs, then you need our quiz bowl subscription !
Each Wednesday during the school year, we e-mail you a link to our Dropbox account with the current week’s set of questions. Download each PDF file, use it in practice, mark it up, and give it out for study!
2016-17 sets include tossups, bonuses, and lightning rounds (sets of 10 questions in 60 seconds). Questions not in your format can be used for warmups or speed checks. At the end of the subscription, you download one file with all the sets to put away for future years.
NOTE: Questions begin after payment arrives here. You will (eventually) get all the questions you order, but if your school takes weeks to process a PO, you can use PayPal below (or by phone) and then take your e-mailed receipt to your bookkeepers to get reimbursed. (We regret asking you to do this, but with so many subscribers, it’s necessary.)
To use a PO, e-mail us the PO #, and which subscription(s) you want. We email back an invoice with the PO # on it; just drop the invoice off with your bookkeeper.
Subscriptions for this year don’t start until the check is here; if the check comes after we start, you get caught up right away.
Over a full year, each “Elementary” set costs less than $4 for 25 tossups (with 2-3 on recent events) and 2 lightning rounds.
Over a full year, each “Basic” set costs less than $5 for 20 tossups (with 3-5 on recent events) , 20 four-part bonuses and 3 lightning rounds.
Over a full year, each “Advanced” set costs less than $6 for 24 tossups (with 4-6 on recent events), 24 three-part bonuses, and 4 lightning rounds.
The 3 sets overlap each week; thus, buying a year at one level allows you to buy a lower-level set at a large discount. But get only one set if everyone on your team always practices together.
The 20 sets for 2016-17 will be sent out : Oct. 12/19/26, Nov. 2/9/16/23/30, Dec. 7/14, Jan. 18/25, Feb. 1/8/15/22, and Mar. 1/8/15/22.
