Re: What Happens to DC-Area Quizbowl Next Year?

As for the third tier teams, TJ returns Ryan, which alone is enough to show their potential strength, but like the case of some other teams I don't know who will come up to support him. But I do see Ryan being very good by the team he's a senior. This year has admittedly not been one of TJ's best q...

We've reached our field cap of 20 teams. Any further teams who would like to register will be placed on a waitlist - due to space constraints it's unlikely we'll be able to open the field to new teams, but it's possible the cap may rise to 24.

We're about a month out from TJIAT with a current field of 15 teams. We'll likely cap the total at 20 so if you're interested in registering sign up soon! It's great to see so much interest from newer teams in the NoVa area.

Prelim stats. Win-loss record ties were broken by PPB, not PPG as is indicated by the SQBS report. Playoff round-robins are currently underway (Beltway traffic and some unexpected staffing issues caused some delays).

We expect to only play cross-bracket games among the top two brackets.
