Though she will be a Junior next year, my daughter Maddie will not be affiliated with Edison in '09-'10.

Re: BAIT (March 7, 2009) @ UCLA

I lost a red camera in a black case at the tournament. If anyone found it, I would appreciate having it returned to me.

Thanks :)

Re: Baby Anteater X (1/31/2009) at UCI

My own opinion is that teams that were made up of Freshmen and Sophomores were at a huge disadvantage when playing against Juniors and Seniors, even if the Juniors and Seniors had no previous Quiz Bowl experience, due to the fact that Freshmen and Sophomores been exposed to the same subjects in scho...

Re: Southern California 08-09

Edison played prelims, decided that since they didn't qualify for the top bracket to leave in the middle/before play offs. Stop doing this, people! I don't know why somebody from Rancho is speaking for Edison... At Twain, Edison had several games against good teams come down to the last question an...

2) Edison - I'm going to refrain from saying anything because anything I say will be offensive and caustic. They're decent.

Edison won't be at Caltech because of conflicts with an MUN conference. Also one of the A team members just had a bone marrow transplant.

Also since I think all of the events for the year are done, who qualified for nationals and how many teams?
The official date for the Great Auk is April 23rd, so many teams haven't participated yet.

Re: Southern California 2007-08

i was at cal over the weekend, it would be nice if someone could provide a somewhat objective evaluation on how arcadia did. i'd imagine we (arcadia) at caltech wouldve been quite a bit weaker on science. If I recall correctly, Arcadia was able to answer most of the science questions that were pres...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

Yo...we (La Jolla) went to Caltech, but didn't see the RB team there at all. Something happen? o_o And grats to Edison for beating us. Tho it was too bad that the playoff format made it so that only one of your teams could qualify, again...still, look forward to seeing you at Nationals. There was a...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

By the way ntan, I think that the Arcadia tournament was the most well-organized of all that I have attended this year. Arcadia gave great directions, provided the location of eating establishments, so our team could plan for lunch and everything seemed to happen right on schedule. At some of the to...

Ahh I see I see. Oh I saw you at that tournament then, accompanying your B team. If this comment is directed at me, yes, I am the mom with the cooler. :) My daughter thinks that I am goofy, but I think that proper hydration and regular snacking is an important factor in strong Quiz Bowl performance...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

Julie RS, that was a very impressive performance by what was more-or-less Edison B. However, I recall (and stats support) the presence of 5 players on Edison at the tournament. Was the fifth player a regular on the A or B team or a C team player? I was pointing out that beating the team that finish...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

responding to Juile: haha Edison (especially team B) has a knack for beating us as well, I'm sure you guys will do pretty well next year. major props for placing 3rd with a makeshift team. With SaMo graduating a significant portion of their team A (two members i believe?), I wonder if RB, TP, Arcad...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

Julie RS, At the Arcadia tournament, my team (Rancho Bernardo) was able to beat Edison A twice, but lost to Edison B. When Edison A played Edison B, they lost on the last tossup (I believe). Any explanation for this unusual occurence? I believe the A team and the B team both had their usual members...

Re: Southern California 2007-08

Anyway, and I think everyone on the board would agree with me, Santa Monica would absolutely crush Fallbrook on pyramidal questions this year. That 575-15 pasting of Edison (and it really should have been 600+ but they double-negged the last tossup) was the most impressive performance I've seen in ...

MC, you know theres a tournament at Rancho Bernardo on the 12th? All other San Diego teams as well, this is very close to home compared to the usual tournaments. I do hope that MC and Westview can come. For those in the LA area, a 1 1/2 hour drive isn't bad. Its fun to hang out with your friends in...
