ANNOUNCEMENT: Sunshine State Invitational 1/13/07

On January 13, 2007, the University of Florida will host the 18th Sunshine State Invitational. It will be ACF-style with power tossups, and questions will be written in-house by the University of Florida College Bowl team, so packet submission is not necessary. Also, the next day, an as-yet unnamed ...

Speaking just for myself, I enjoy playing on ACF Regionals questions just as much, if not more, than I enjoy playing on Sword questions. Just because I can have a light-hearted attitude and enjoy myself on lower-quality easier questions doesn’t mean I am espousing any sort of "moral superiority". ...

His point seemed to be that I make mistakes too in my questions. Well, there's no doubt about that, but this isn't one of them.

I do call the several errors factual, but I don't think this is the appropriate place to have a debate over the provenance of the F.C., so I invite you to IM me or email me to continue the debate, if you like.

I definately would not call Sword the "worst ever" either. I thought the tournament was fine, with the most annoying problem being the bonus difficulty level being so varied. I was excited to get to leave by 8:30 (because of our 7 hour drive), which is earlier than I was expecting for things to end....

We've tried to resolve the problem in the same manner that many schools do, which is having a separate practice (on Tuesday nights) exclusively for Div II players and an open practice (on Wednesday nights) for all players. The goal, of course, is to keep from discouraging new players while still gi...

haha well well, if you look at the official state tournaments for Florida from last year ( i.e. CAC and Beta) youd have to put Leon on there....they won the state division II by a landslide and competed in a lot of tournaments.
