Re: NAC Schedules

Let's go back to what started this thread. There was an amazing amount of teams from the state of New York, with probably a third of the teams there from the New York area. The questions were a bit better, but we were stuck with the obligatory Miley Cyrus song, the same music compositions which Chi...

Re: NAC Schedules

Clearly, I am too stupid and unworthy of being at this board because I happen to enjoy a certain competition. Every post made about me has been ridden with assumptions that are false. Just because I worked there and liked what I did and will do next weekend in Chicago does not mean that I think it i...

Re: NAC Schedules

Interesting write-up from DC ... So, Booker T. Washington, because they won in DC, automatically advance to the championship game? I guess that the finalists from Chicago will play for the chance to play against the Dallas winner? Why not wait until the Chicago phase is over before seeding the fina...

Re: NAC Schedules

I noticed that, of the questions they featured in the write-up, most were pyramidal. Should we take this as a sign that Chip is starting to write harder questions, or just enough to try to look legitimate? That analysis from the field trip would be helpful... I can't talk about specific questions u...

Re: NAC Schedules

The game just finished a few minutes ago. I am proud to announce that my team, Booker T. Washington, won the DC leg and wil advance directly to the final match in Chicago. They beat New Rochelle 340-235 (I think).
Captain Dylan Hames was awarded MVP.

I'm leaving in a bout 2 hours for Sunny DC! If any of you are going, see you there, and I'll try my best to moderate your games with great efficiency.

Re: (Correct) Answers that made you hang your head in shame.

Maybe this one will be considered more legitimate and I won't be criticized...

In Oklahoma, there seems to always be a question about Maroon 5. For some reason, the boys generally beat the girls to answering said questions.

Re: NAC Schedules

Actually, there are 42 going to Chicago. A team dropped at the last minute, which is why I'm being sent to DC rather than Chicago as a moderator.

PS: Give me a shout if you see me in DC! I'll be the female moderator. :dance:

Re: Art Names

More importantly from a rules perspective I think, you'll find both text and audio publications of the symphony that refer to it as such. Someone in Oklahoma said it was incorrect, until several musicians mentioned that it is written that way on many copies of music and recordings. One of (many) th...

Re: Art Names

Similarly, should "New World Symphony" be accepted as a form of "From the New World"? This was disputed during a high school match a couple of years ago.
