Re: Paired Tossups and Bonuses

I think you need very strict length control and bonus timing So the latter point is going to be extremely difficult to uniformly enforce across an entire tournament unless every room has a nats caliber reader in it (which most local tournaments definitely do not have!).

Re: It's Time To D-D-D-D....Duel! (Challenge: Columbia vs. Chicago)
