State specific quizbowl message boards and sites

Postby mithokie » Mon Feb 23, 2015 11:18 am

I have noticed that several states conduct a lot of their quizbowl business through state specific websites and/or message boards. These are often associated with a quizbowl alliance of some kind. Would it be possible to have a collection of links on the front page of the website to the state specific sites/boards that might be of interest to people looking for more localized information about quizbowl in their area?

Thanks!

It's not 100% state specific, but this one covers the greater Philadelphia area if this is the sort of thing you're looking for.

I'm going to go ahead and sticky this: if another moderator/administrator thinks it belongs in a different forum, they are free to move it.

Many of the organizations on that page do not promulgate good quiz bowl. We should have a list in hsquizbowl that exclusively points to organizations dedicated to high quality competitions.

This is exactly what I was thinking about. The info on the NAQT link may not all be up to date either.
