Re: ERHS Quizbowl Tournament; Greenbelt MD; (9/27/14)

This is sad to see; GPQB could probably help y'all with PR next time if you announce the tournament further in advance. It looks like many teams that would've been closer to this location had already committed to Princeton since that was announced during the summer and a lot of schools need to make...

Re: Summer Practices at UMD

Hey, my bad for the originally short and stupid post. Basically what Chris said. A couple of us from ER went to the UMD practice on Tuesday and played the college sets they practiced with. It was a good experience, but our QB development would be better served by focusing on HS content for now. Chri...

Japanese Literature

Hey all,

As I have been studying quizbowl and going through many packets, and one thing (of many) I absolutely cannot get right is Japanese Literature. What are some must know Japanese authors and literary works so I can study them?

What packets should I study?

Re: Improving PPB

"As far as ppb goes, I find that a lot of teams overestimate how important it is to have spectacular points per bonus. Obviously you want to be converting the bonuses as 30s all the time, but as far as comparisons between teams, it's usually a lot more important to get tossups than to get bonuses. B...

Re: A Richard Montgomery BELLOCO Mirror 3/29/14 (Rockville,

I thought the tournament was great in terms of questions and the amount of great teams there. Personally, the first round of the playoffs had some poor questions and strange answers. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it. --ERHS QB Mod note: Please note that all user accounts should belong to one specific ...
