Re: DC/DE/MD/VA Date Claim '12-'13

To add to the potential conflict with the April 27th date, I sent a PM to Noah earlier today advising him that the 27th was also in the middle of the NHBB's National Bowl & Bee tournaments in the DC & Alexandria areas that wekend. I suggested a move to early May with the idea that the HFT Set they ...

Re: CSWIFT at Wilmington Charter (11/3/12)

GDS will be bringing one Varsity and one JV. We would be pretty upset if this tournament got cancelled. Not only because we wouldn't get to play quizbowl and can't really go to another tournament for a month, but also because our administration has been annoying about buses and will be really upset ...

Re: Where to Buy Buzzers?

GDS pretty much exclusively buys from Buzzersystems.com. Even though they still use fax to send orders, they have some of the best most reliable buzzer systems.

Do you still plan to use the same set as VCU Fall (IS-118), or are you going to use a different set?

I'm not sure if this completely conflicts with your field or not, but according to the NAQT website the University of Maryland is planning on using the same set for Maryland Fall I just noticed this as well - if this does become a conflict, I'd say the best solution would probably be for UMD to swi...

Re: neg king/queen/monarch

That said, I may very well choose to award a "buzz of the tournament" prize. At Texas Invitational in Houston, they gave every moderator a bag of snacks (like pretzels or candy) and the moderator would give one of the bags to the player who had the best buzz of the round. I feel like that went well...

Re: neg king/queen/monarch

I feel like the clear solution to the "new player getting neg prize and being discouraged" is only giving a neg prize to someone who also received a scoring prize. If you only give the neg prize to a player who was in the top-8 then there is no risk of a "newbie" getting completely turned off to qui...
