I will be at Minnesota-Morris and presumably still retain some eligibility for Minnesota-Twin Cities. Will play as much as I can.

South Carolina player Jake Spinella is likely transferring to UNC-Chapel Hill this fall. He'd probably like to play quizbowl there. He's a very good philosophy player and has decent knowledge in other areas.

That's awesome Nikhil. Alexa would make a great teammate so i hope she gives it a shot while she's out there. Hopefully we'll run into each other in Atlanta in a few weeks.

Sam, if you're heading to Orlando this summer, there are open practices at Valencia's West Campus on Wednesdays from 11-3 which will likely draw some of the UCF folks. We'd be happy to have you.

Barring shenanigans, I won't be down there until the start of August; on the other hand, that still potentially leaves a few weeks of academic-summer. I'll likely pester you (or the UCF folks, I suppose) for more info once I'm settled in.

I reckon I'll stick around at UAH for 1 more year. After that it's looking like graduate school(hopefully Auburn) unless I can get job shadowing experience, but then again who knows?
