Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2012-2013

Because Scarsdale will be hosting a January tournament on a NAQT-A packet, does that mean that Half Hollow Hills West will not be hosting one this year?

Valley Stream South will definitely be bringing 1 team, possibly 2. We have four buzzer systems.

Valley Stream South actually carry overs three A team members in the form of myself, Andrew Hess, and Liana Vulaj. :grin:

Re: Prison Bowl V @ Hunter HS, NYC (3/3/2012)

At around what time would the preliminaries conclude? There's an event at my school on that date for which some of my team's players have to be back for, so we would be leaving at around 2:30 PM.

Re: FNT Mirror @ Hunter College High School (10/29/11)

What time is the tournament scheduled to begin? I'm probably missing this vital piece of information while it's right there, in black and white. Thanks!

Re: FNT Mirror @ Hunter College High School (10/29/11)

Valley Stream South is currently looking into this.

Question:
Do either LIFT or HHH qualify as tournaments that would make a player ineligible to attend? I know that HHH uses NAQT-A question sets, so I'm not sure if that would count.

Re: NAQT Questions

So, do both types follow the pyramidal structure of questions (obscure reference to dead giveaway)? And also, what's the difference between a tournament that uses an A-Set or an IS-Set?

Thanks so much for the help!

NAQT Questions

Although I've been playing quiz bowl for quite some time, I'm still not entirely sure of the difference between so-called NAQT "A" Packets and NAQT "B" Packets. Could somebody explain the difference between these two questions types, or tell me if there is a difference at all? Thanks!

Moving Away From The "Long Island" Quiz Bowl Team Stereotype

I saw WSchneider's post here: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=11702#p220234 which only gave me further motivation to expand the number of tournaments I and my team attend throughout the year. Although I've been playing quiz bowl since 8th grade, I am a "newbie" captain, so to speak...
