Sun God Invitational @ New College of Florida (11/10/18)

The New College Quizbowl Team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting a mirror of Sun God on November 10th, 2018. Unfortunately, the 17th is a day when a football game, birthday of an important figure, and a college tour happens at different schools in Florida, thus I can only do it on Novemb...

Re: ACF Fall 2018 - November 3rd, 2018

Will there be a Florida mirror? Ideally at either UF or UCF? The first packet submission deadline is next week and I would prefer not to submit a pack without the knowledge that we can attend this tournament. The turn out for the Florida mirror last year was very good and there is no reason not the ...

Re: Small Circuits, High Schools Teams, and ACF Fall

Have you tried asking the tournament head editor for exemption privately before? I have found that they are usually okay with it as long as it makes the field better.

Re: Florida Spring Tournament (FST) Specific Question Discus

- There was a bonus about functions whose squares are integrable, but it didn't have a note to accept things like "L2 integrable" or "in L2," which is the more formal way of talking about those functions (as opposed to "square integrable.") I agree, L2 integrable should even be the preferred answer...

Re: Your Favorite Question

I don't have access to the tossup but someone wrote a tossup on "action" from physics at D2 ICT last year, I was very delighted.

Re: Parts of the Lit Canon worth the time to read

I'd really like to reject this idea that there are parts of the literature canon "worth the time to read." Everyone has different tastes in literature, and saying that certain books or authors aren't worth the time to read is just beyond silly. Agree. Dostoevsky is my favorite author but I can't sa...

Re: Mons Mathstrosity II: Even Primes Redux [Announcement]

Very happy to see this happening. I didn't play the first Math Monstrosity because I can only do it on Skype and I am not the biggest fan of Skype bowl. But I did play/read through all the packets. While I am not a big fan of the fact that my reader was struggling to read the nicely complied Latex M...

Re: Nationalities of Title Winners

I remember someone telling me that Matt Bollinger is from Hong Kong, that doesn't necessarily mean he is a citizen of HK though, non-Chinese don't usually have it.

ACF Fall 2017?

The Fall semester is near and there is still no post about ACF Fall this coming semester. I was wondering if ACF Fall is taking a hiatus or possibly not existing anymore. This is based on the fact that there is a lot of possibly more desirable tournaments coming up.

Re: NASAT Weekend at Valencia College (August 19th)

TDing a tournament was a stressful burden to my experience. If anyone is willing to take the burden to make the n-many teams who play to tournament happy, I don't think people with such pure intention would be cheating. Down here in the southeast we all know each other very well, it is hard to cheat...
