Yes you're right - my bad everybody. I get the two confused... all I know is that we're going to both this summer. David, which one did you say you guys are going to attend?

Ah, well I'm sorry things turned out for you that way. If it had happened to us, we would have been just as unpleased and as vocal as you guys were. Have fun on your Eurotrip this summer. I don't believe Covenant Christian will be able to go to Nat's... but LAMP might accompany us. We'll be going to...

Yes, I see. At the time we were unaware that timeouts could not be called during a bonus. I apologize on behalf of my team. What did Mr. Bobo say? Did he just decide not to acknowledge the protest or what?

Hey, just got back from the Arab High School prom at the Von Braun Civic Center in H'ville. Brindlee Mtn. took 3rd overall at the tournament today, although no trophy was awarded to the third place team. To Indian Springs: I heard that there was a protest about the round we played earlier today... I...

Ha ha - yes you're right about prom season. I will actually be attending my second prom this year tomorrow night. My coach told me that Mr. Bobo expects the tournament to end in the vicinity of 12:30 PM. For the B'ham teams the drive to Bevill-Jasper is nothing at all. All of us up here on Brindlee ...

I hope to get to play you guys at high school level one more time before I graduate. Do you guys know yet if you'll be attending NAQT State on April 23rd?

Hey, I have to agree with everyone who denounced mathematics in typical ASCA rounds. However, I may be a little biased because I am originally from Florida (surely you all know how much trouble we native Floridians have with counting stuff). I can identify with ithinkiamsteven's assertion of teamwor...

Yep - the State tourney sure was interesting. I don't need to post the final results, they've already been posted a couple of times. I want to congratulate all those who ranked 1st-3rd, ISS, Grissom, and LAMP. The rounds against Grissom and LAMP were the best ASCA rounds we've played all year. Both ...

Oh - and just to keep the string to its subject for Mr. Weiner: The UTC tournament was incredible. We also attended the one they hosted in the fall. We were equally impressed by both of them. It was great getting to know our neighbors the the north (the Tennesseans and Kentuckians) a little better. ...

Yup. Sho 'nuff. These freshmen really have it going for them. The coach has spent about 4-5 years with all of them. Let me give you a little more insight... 1 - The origins of Brindlee Mountain High begin with two middle schools - Grassy and Union Grove . Both of these middle schools fed into Arab H...

To Trevkeeper: That may be possible.

Is there any member of this forum from the West Frankfort or Thompsonville areas? I lived there for ten years before I relocated to Alabama. I didn't get interested in quiz bowl until I came here, and now I'm curious as to how West Frankfort and/or Thompsonville perform. Anyone from there? Anyone pl...

(Myles Teston) Yes, I will be graduating this May. Brindlee Mountain's strength next year should not be affected greatly. My entire team consists of freshman and one sophomore (a German exchange student who just wanted to experience a great American pastime, scholar's bowl). My three varsity teammat...

18. Bill Frist (R-TN) - Senator Frist is indeed the first practicing physician to be elected to the U.S. Senate since 1928 , having first done so in the 1994 Tennessee Senatorial election by defeating incumbent Senator Jim Sasser (D).

Thank you, Raj. My mistake... I pretty much went on a wing and a prayer when I read "lone Hispanic senator" and went down through the list and read the name "Martinez." I'll check out Senator Salazar's bio and check some archived election results for Colorado so I can correct my post before the day ...

2005 ASCA Regionals (Alabama)

Well, I believe we're all done complaining about and simultaneously praising the 9th Annual ASFA Invitational. It's time for Alabama to move on to more important matters, namely Regionals. Here are the Regional Assignments based on ASCA District Tournament results as posted by quizbowlee in the 04-0...

I looked at the senators work sheet afterward and it didn't really seem that bad. I'm kinda surprised y'all didn't know Robert C.

Just in case you didn't know - I wanted to say for the record that Brindlee Mountain will definitely be going to Regionals at Arab High School this year. Although we did get a tough deal at the regular...

LAMP Invitational, Jan 8, 2005

Just a comment on the LAMP Invitational from January 8; There were a lot of out of state teams at this one, and it was the first time we got the chance to play some of them. We played Ezell-Harding (I think from Nashville) and got beat in a heartbreaker, err... I mean tiebreaker. After that we prett...

The Top Five

Just an addendum to quizbowlee's opinion to the top five teams. It is impossible to actually rank the top five teams in order. While Brindlee Mountain (mi casa) has never beaten LAMP at a tournament head-to-head before, we have managed to beat all the teams that beat LAMP and we've won the tournamen...
