Re: Newtown HS Quiz Bowl Invitational (12/8/12 Newtown, CT)

Unaffiliated Smithtown East (Red Bulls) may be interested, but this is extremely tentative due to transportation for now, but hope to update soon.

Re: ProtoBowl

Nevermind, it's a problem with avast! However, I should note that this problem did not occur before, and it will likely affect other avast! users, so something to be aware of I guess. Even then I'm curious as to how that happens. What did it look like when it didn't work? I use avast! and haven't h...

Re: ProtoBowl

I think the system reupdated; my MacBook is no longer to use Protobowl, but my desktop running XP can. On my Mac, I tried Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, and all of them didn't work, while Firefox and IE both worked on my XP, so could this be looked into? Thank you.

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

Some bright news, introduced pyramidal questions into regular practice today (probably the first for the club, at least the past 3 years I've been here). Did 1 round of that, then did one Chip game. The top players all wanted to go back to pyramidal and never go to Chip again. So I admit my faults a...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

I think the plan for us is to work around administration by going independent, or try using Smithtown East the first time as our name, and then be non-affiliated if the school catches wind and strongly disapproves. We're definitely going to try to be independent, but this is such a foreign idea to p...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

I understand, but historically these decisions are far above us. I understand the criticisms of non-NAQT tournaments, but it's more of a matter of historical decisions and school policy limits. We don't decide where our resources go. We used to do Kellenberg and Hills, but cuts have taken that away ...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

NAC conflicted with senior prom NAC has 3 dates. why not go to chicago the next weekend, or better yet HSNCT the weekend before? Well from the sound of it, Smithtown East will be participating more actively this year. I hope to see you guys at at least a few tournaments. I get the feeling that othe...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

there is no reason why 5 seconds should be allowed after a buzz. Um this is pretty standard, actually. Why? Makes quiz bowl seem more like a buzzing competition than a knowledge competition, which defeats the purpose. If you're asked a math question, then very often it's a matter of just buzzing in...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

In Smithtown East's defense... Bel Air was just about the worst tournament I have ever experienced... there is no reason why 5 seconds should be allowed after a buzz; it makes it worse than the Challenge buzzing. Not the mention, we had a year of conflicts... so we never were able to bring in our ac...
