Re: What's up with Utah?

Dwight--I would love some contacts, thanks!

So the general consensus is that quiz bowl is more established in Utah's surrounding areas? I see.

What's up with Utah?

I just graduated from high school, and this next fall I will be going out to Brigham Young University in Utah. I was just wondering if anyone here knew much about the quiz bowl program out there. (I noticed there was no discussion about Utah specifically--western qb seems to be centered in Californi...

Not sure if this was addressed above--but will the bonuses be bounced?

Re: College Heights Academic Tournament @ WKU (3/26/11)

I have no objections to eliminating the neg for this tourney. As you stated, without powers the neg would be a bit unnecessary.
This is how UTC March 5th went--no negs or powers--and it ran smoothly.

Re: Dennis Haskins Open at UTC 3/5/2011

For those interested, Ezell-Harding A took first place with Station Camp High School coming in second and Webb A in third in the varsity division. I'm not sure about the junior varsity division however. Congratulations and well done to all the teams who participated! Thanks to everyone who put a lot...

Re: Georgia Tech HSNCT Warm-up: April 16, 2011

My high school might be interested, but no guarantees.
Perhaps it was noted above, but what sets will be used at this tourney? The same ones read at Culver?
Also, is this a standard format tourney, 20 TU with bonuses?

Thanks!

Re: National History Bee and Bowl - TN (at Donelson Christian)

Perhaps it should be noted that this tournament has NOT taken place yet. Due to a lack of interest and response, it has been rescheduled for Tuesday, March 22nd at 3:30 P.M.

Re: 2011 NASAT: June 11-12, University of Maryland-College Park

Who would I contact in Tennessee about getting together a team, or is there even an HSAPQ contact for TN specifically? Has a TN team already registered? I've never heard of this before, but I'm very interested and somewhat lost on where to start. Do I just gauge interest among all the players in my ...

Re: Vanderbilt Spring Tournament

Yes, I've been wondering this as well.
Do we know if this one will also be house written, a qualifier for HSNCT, etc? What has it been like in the past?

Re: College Heights Academic Tournament @ WKU (3/26/11)

Any date but the 25th--as you mentioned above we have the TN States that day.
I think the 19th would work out best for our team, but if the 26th works better for other teams, then I can talk to my coaches/team about it and see what we'll do.

Re: Tentative date: Dennis Haskins Open at UTC 3/5/2011

Just curious if there were any updates on the date for this tournament. As far as our team is concerned, we're pretty flexible with dates and very interested in this tourney.
What sets will be played?

Re: NAQT state championship host call for 2011

Do you happen to know what school in Tennessee is holding the state championship, or do you have a link that would contain this information? Thanks.

Re: Five Simple Ways to Get Better

I agree that lists aren't the way to improve. I feel like at best a player can become *average* through simply memorizing things on lists. I question their use as a starting point as well- I think reading AP prep books could be better at times. A common question when people join quiz bowl is, "how/...

Re: Vanderbilt ABC XL: 10/29 and 10/30/10

My school's coach should have registered for this tournament by now--we're kind of new at this, and I didn't see our school on the field update--and we were wondering in what building the tournament will be held.
Also, is it OK to bring the money with us when we register on Saturday morning?
Thanks!
