Re: Texas Quiz Bowl Pre-Nationals Event (5/15)

Yes, we do have a budget. Did I ever give the impression that we didn't or just because we seem to get around? We just really have to choose which tournaments we attend, because the competition in MS hasn't really caught up to other areas of the country. We have been fortunate that our school gives ...

St. Andrew's is interested in this tournament if our budget allows. We are hosting the Mississippi State competition in April and will know more in about 3 weeks. Is there a deadline to register?

Re: Prison Bowl III at Hunter HS (NYC) - 2/27/10

In reference to the format (noting that my team won't be in attendance, but has gone to other northeast events) our team has found just taking the top 2 teams out of a bracket for the top 6 has never worked well for us. We have always been put in a bracket that had 2 definitely dominant teams. We ma...

I hope it goes well and that these schools learn more about good quizbowl! I hope so too. Too many schools down here don't like pyramidal questions...argh!!

Re: Mississippi State Fall Tournament, 11/7/09

It did indeed.
Madison Central A defeated Clinton in the finals
St. Andrew's A defeated Itawamba A in the consolation

There was a separate B team bracket (basically JV with no regulation on grade levels) that Madison Central B defeated St. Andrew's B.
