lol

it certainly would

luckily, camp finally dropped the whole chip thing this year

after all, practicing for chip is inherently pointless...unless you are practicing sucking up to TD's, in which case...

actually, I go to camp not for the practices and nightly competitions (fun though they are), but for the major classes. I went to the Literature 2 class (taught by Mr. Jim Garrick), and I found it to be very valuable. Admittedly, you will not learn as much about one or two books as if you sat down a...

for what it's worth, that wasn't exactly the best ASCN-like set I've every heard as far as the math teacher goes, i'm just saying don't blame the camp. They couldn't have known what kind of teacher she would be until she actually taught at camp. If she was indeed a bad teacher, then she probably won...

in a perfect world, all questions would be answered by those who know the most information and are the best players. But this isn't a perfect world, and to say that you cannot start of "This English Author" is being overly harsh, in my opinion. Make the questions harder, if you must, so that people ...

:arrow: okay, to your first complaint: the questions. I don't understand what you are complaining about...it is perfectly fine, in my opinion, to start a question out with "This mongol leader" or "This English author", because there are more than one of them . If anyone is buzzing in there, they are...

why should a team be descriminated against just because they didn't go to a national tournament?

many schools just simply don't have the funds to send a team halfway across the nation...

just something to think about :|

I think the lower finishes of some teams at PACE (as compared to NAQT) can be at least partially attributed to the different format and questions. In my experience, PACE rewards deeper knowledge and has less "trash" questions, which can hurt a team that capitalizes on the trash and has broad, but no...

as long as the trash is kept to 1-2 questions in an NAQT set, I can deal with it, and sometimes, it is nice as a change of pace, or something to laught about however, what I dislike about the question distribution in NAQT sets is the emphasis on Social Studies. I am of the opinion that Social Studie...
