Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

For people who take Latin and have no idea what the first clue was talking about, the "separation" clue could have caused quite a few negs, since the ablative of separation is a very common construction in Latin, much more so than the dative of separation. I might just be speaking for myself though.

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

May I please see the tossup on the dative case? I negged this with ablative on "separation" and just want to see some of the clues.

Re: MSNCT predictions

This (https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament/t ... _id=165342) performance from Churchill seems to point to good things at MSNCT. Also this (https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament/t ... _id=157752) from a (mostly middle school) Hunter C.

Re: MSNCT predictions

I think either Challenger-Almaden or Churchill will win. Teams to watch out for are probably Hunter, Hopkins, Midtown (I know), Aptakisic, Quest, and Barrington.

Re: DATE POLL: ILLIAC Collegiate/Open Online Mirror

Are high schoolers allowed to play in this tournament? I wasn't able to attend the Groger Ranks HS-only mirror.

Re: Mythology

Just in terms of Greco-Roman myth, buying copies of Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" and Morford and Lenardon's "Classical Mythology" would probably be a good idea, as well as reading the Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid (obviously other sources like the Theogony and Metamorphoses have already been mentioned)...

Re: Harvard Fall Tournament XIII Available for Mirrors (2018-19)

Is there any chance of an online mirror happening for this? I know that it's not customary, but I was just wondering.

Re: OCTAVIAN - A Classics Tournament

Considering that it has already been played at one site (VCU), do you think that there will be an online mirror of this in the near future? I know that I would love to give this tournament a shot, but, like so many others, can’t attend an actual mirror site.

Thank you,

Re: NASAT Online Mirror 2 (7/28 to 7/29)

Hello everyone, I just put my name down as a free agent for this mirror of NASAT. First off, am I allowed to compete in this as a middle schooler (well, technically my MS career is done)? Second, if it is okay for me to play, I'd be glad to join any team that needs a history/fine arts/mythology play...
