I'm sorry, I thought everyone had access to the tournament results 1. TP A 2. TP B 3. La Jolla A 4. Scripps A There were a total of 7 teams in attendance. From what I saw, La Jolla A should have gotten the 2nd seed. They managed to beat TP A in the playoffs, but due to TP A having a superior prelim ...

The thing is though, cost is a major issue for teams in SoCal. Due to the lack of density, cost is proportionally higher if we wish to play high caliber teams. Cost of tickets + hotel....sigh. I actually do think playing at college tournaments would be a great idea. Ill ask some people in the colleg...

My team is rather reluctant to do two out of state tournaments. We seem to feel that expenses outweigh the benefits. I do want to go though... I wonder if PACE will let us play with a hybrid team? =D Edison has been rather close with La Jolla every match they've played. They lost to La Jolla at UCI,...

I do hope that MC and Westview can come. For those in the LA area, a 1 1/2 hour drive isn't bad. Its fun to hang out with your friends in ...

It's the Arcadia tournament
Surprisingly we're not missing people due to band. Apparently no bandos are on quizbowl! =)

Your band is 3 times the size of ours so maybe thats why you lose ppl to band tournaments

We decide our NAQT teams based on areas individuals are strong in. We try to make it so that we cover as much of the quizbowl canon as possible. Tournament experience weighs in a lot as well. Usually this coincides with performance in practice, but when it doesn't, experience is more valuable than p...

The tally right now (highly conservative mind you), is 283 houses completely destroyed

This number will definitely increase.

I would say TWAIN reflects the strengths in SoCal pretty well, except for Torrey Pines B. Therefore, my rankings are thus

1. Santa Monica A (by far)
2. Rancho Bernardo B
3. Arcadia A
4. Rancho Bernardo A
5. Torrey Pines B


Hmm does anyone know where san dieguito is?

3. The first Sa Mo A/RB B game had a total of 9 powers in 20 questions. The second one had 13. In total the six 1-4 playoff games averaged 9.17 powers per game.

AL = academic league It is basically like NAQT, with tossups and bonuses and such, but the questions usually consist exclusively of give aways, thus it is more of a speed game than a knowledge game. Bonuses are also given all at once, with 20 seconds to work on all of them. No powers...sigh =( A sam...

I think one surprise team in the SoCal region could be La Jolla.
They did well at the tournament Arcadia Hosted, and they were not bad at all at UCI's CBCT. I don't know how many players they graduated, but they are bringing three teams to UCLA's TWAIN this weekend.
