Re: Alabama 2012-2013

I was really pleased to see that ASCA had started using NAQT questions. Using good questions should help with improving player quality in the state since it gives the student more information and forces the student to think more. Having questions where you know the answer is "Scott Joplin" after the...

Congratulations to Brindlee Mountain for winning NAQT State. And to Indian Springs and Bob Jones for finishing second and third. Sounded like it was a good tournament. Maybe next year, more teams will attend NAQT State.

Also, to all those who are wondering, CCA will have a team next year.

If more schools hosted NAQT style invitationals rather than ASCA style invitationals, there would be more interest in the NAQT State. As it is, a lot of schools write their own questions for their tournament, and ASCA questions are a lot easier to write than NAQT questions. And you don't have to pay...

I think, though, that until it becomes harder to get to NAQT State, or it becomes much larger than it is, teams won't consider it more prestigious than other tournaments. Therefore, I hope that you get to host it next year and get the word out to everybody that they need to be there. Maybe, if enoug...

It is on Easter weekend which is a bad time for scheduling. 2. Mar...

One of the moderators at State said that they didn't have anybody that really knew math. He said that they checked all the questions except the math ones due to their lack of knowledge in that area.

Do you know how they are going to divide the pools? It seems like last year they put the teams in pools based on the size of the schools they were from.

I have three questions.

2. What ASCA rules will be modified (blitzing would be nice)?

3. What is the deadline to sign up?
