Our field is temporarily capped at 24. This will (hopefully) be expanded as we can guarantee more staff, so feel free to still express your interest to us.

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Penn Bowl (Jan 28th, 2012)

So is December 1 the packet submission deadline, or just the deadline for telling you we can write? And if it's the latter, when is the actual packet deadline?

Re: Harvard Fall Tournament VI (11/12/11)

I apologize to the MSU folks for handing them a set that wasn't appropriate for their audience, since I get the feeling that the Fall Novice set or something like that would have suited those teams better (please yell at me if I'm being condescending here, as that's not my intention).

Re: Michigan State Mirror of Harvard Fall (11/12/11)

Looking at the stats, I feel there is a real need for expansion of quizbowl in Michigan. When DCD or DCC just comes and dominates every tournament is really good for anyone. I definitely agree, but I won't go on that rant here. Though I was especially pleased to see my dad's homeland of Mason Count...

Stats for the round robin are up on our website. We seem to have misplaced the scoresheet for the final round, so we'll update these results if/when we find it. However, that round doesn't change the standings at all, since St. Michael's A beat Lansing Homeschool anyway.
