Re: Your Lowest Point

1. The winter of 2013-2014 for Dorman quizbowl was one of great discontent. It was as if we had lost our spirit as a competitive team.

Wofford had to leave early because we needed to get home that night, but if we finished the whole tournament we wouldn't have gotten home until 4 am. It seem...

Re: What are the easiest categories to learn?

I was a history player in high school but since I've been in college I've been trying to generalize my knowledge, so I think I can give a pretty solid rundown. In my opinion, Literature is the easiest to become OK at quickly because you can maximize your title/author knowledge and then start buildin...
