Re: The Secret History of Shantanu, Chicago Quizbowl, and NA

I'll reply to these posts at length when I have some more time, but I want to clarify that what Marshall says does not reflect the views of the people (Matt and me) who were actually interacting with NAQT throughout this ordeal. I certainly never thought Andrew was trying to "intimidate" me, and I d...

Re: COLT - University of Chicago - 7/31/2011

The lecture hall that is reserved for Sunday is Harper 140, so that would be the best place to meet. All the other rooms that we reserved for Friday/Saturday are the same on Sunday, though.

Re: Chicago Open Logistics - Questions

In addition to Chicago's Judge that Donald is bringing, we currently have one working buzzer system, a knot. We've ordered more but I don't think they'll be here in time for Chicago Open. I'm unaware of any Chicago staffers beyond Jonah. The tournament is indeed in Harper again this year. I have bee...

Chicago has enough interest for 3 teams (with a chance at a 4th), so 2 will definitely be there and you can put the other(s) on the wait list.

Re: Early Autumn Collegiate Novice at UChicago (10/9)

We should have enough staff, but if competent moderators want to come staff, they can replace some of our less experienced moderators. We are most in need of buzzer systems - we have 3 that work, but I am hoping to run a 12 team tournament, so as many buzzers as you can bring would be appreciated.

I would agree that RB looks like the team to beat next year, with Zhao and Anurag returning.
