Re: The Road to NAC 2009

The thing I love about the lightning rounds is that I almost ALWAYS see the tournament (both :chip: and the NJ Challenge) follow the doctrine of having one easy category, and one not-so-easy category. Also, since the trailing team picks first, they are more likely to sweep it while the leading team...

Re: Bloggin' about you-know-what

I'm taking a round off, go to Jonah's blog. It's St. Josephs (NJ State champs apparently) vs. Zionsville A The champs of the NJ state tourny that qualified :chip: one for this was actually us, JP Stevens. In fact, the fact that we automatically qualified and the BRITE (the tourny) people were payin...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

By the way, I can't believe I forgot to share this somewhat amusing anecdote. I, and a few of my teammates and my coach, sat in on one of the middle school games going on. One of the teams was from Georgia and loe and behold: a question about a traditional song from Georgia. Somehow that team manage...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

Finally, like everyone else, I have issues with the questions themselves. In generaly, they were LOADED with hoses. For instance, a question (the following is paraphrased) began with "In response to France not supporting the US in the war in Iraq, french fries were renamed..." and then I jumped and ...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

Also, I absolutely ABHORRED the idea of offering chocolate cigarettes as prizes for answering all 10 questions in a 60-second category. Personally, I interpretted it as a way for tobacco to be advertised, because then players (the vast majority of us not even being old enough to buy tobacco, especia...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

Ok, I just came back from the DC phase of this :chip: tourny, and to be perfectly blunt, I see EXACTLY why everyone hates this one. Despite that this may sound like ravings of a loser, I actually have more of an issue with the games that our team won than the one we lost. First, and foremost, the co...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

Just wondering: who sponsored your trip? Should we help you point out how attending PACE NSC or NAQT HSCT is much more cost-effective? It's sponsored by the Bridgewater-Raritan school district, the same people that hosted this tournament. Also, they've been doing this for about as long as NAC was a...

Re: The Road to NAC 2009

Yeah, I think I can see what you mean. The only reason we're going is because our local state tournament is the qualifier for it, and the people that sponsored that are paying for our entrance fee and transportation. Otherwise, I think we may have been more likely to steer clear. :oops:

The Road to NAC 2009

Ok, my high school has officially triumphed at the Bridgewater-Raritan Invitational Tournament of Excellence (BRITE), so we now qualify for a spot at NAC, and we're headed to DC in June. Is anyone else going there?

Cornell U. I got into the College of Engineering, to be more precise.
