Oh no! I'm assistant coaching the OWCCHS and OWC teams. They can't have tournaments on the same days.

That's weird. Do you know when the UF tournament is, then, because the UF tournament is normally that first weekend in December.

October 13 would be better for the OW team because there are some high school students on the Brain Bowl team, and I'm pretty sure the Valencia tournament is always that second weekend in November.

There was a Florida person (Bud Shinn from Polk County), but I don't remember any of the other names.

My state's team is made of the best players from a tournament that is the same style as PAC. We know. You've told us already. And this contributes to the discussion how? I'm thinking she's trying to put up a case for her team winning PAC. However, the logic behind her argument can be tested by look...

My school got out a few weeks ago, so while it would be impossible to organize a team and pay the registration, travel, and boarding fees, I would be really interested in seeing a packet or two. I know I'll be organizing a tournament in the fall, so Iwould like to be exposed to as many formats as po...

While I agree that there is some strategy that must be used, you also must have the basic knowledge to know the first three. There are very few questions that are THAT simple, and often, there is one answer in the first three that no one is sure of, so you have to wait for the fourth option. Also, t...

I was able to be captain of a college team because of the school I went to. At the Collegiate High School, we take college classes on a college campus and participate in college extracurriculars. This year for my Brain Bowl team, I was the only returning member, and my coach said I was the best play...

If you have trouble with the format or think it "makes good players suck," practice more. It really isn't difficult. Maybe it's because I'm familiar with the format, but I really don't understand why everyone is saying certain things. I agree that the tournament set-up isn't great, but the questions...

But I am familiar with NAQT. We don't have PACE in my area, and I'm not exactly sure of what that is, but I have been to and won NAQT Regionals and went to NAQT Nationals this year in Minnesota for my college's Brain Bowl team, of which I was the captain.

While yes, in any quizbowl there will be some buzzer speed involved, in this format there is notably more than in say, NAQT or PACE nationals (PACE especially). While I'm guessing that Destin doesn't get a lot of pyramidal tournaments so you may not realize there are styles that take quizbowl to a ...

Any academic team tournament is going to involve some measure of buzzer speed. Obviously, the faster teams will have an opportunity to answer more questions. But you do also have to KNOW the answers. And they aren't all easy, at least not at our state level.

The concept of an interstate championship is an interesting one. The Panasonic problems seem fixable: 1. Reform the format. 2. Provide funding. If Panasonic ( or some other corporation) is going to sponsor it and put their name all over it, why can't they cough up the 200K needed to pay for the exp...
