Re: 2013 NAQT MSNCT: Congratulations Barrington Station!

Going back to moderators, I did not have a problem with any moderators, though some of them did read very fast. One of them, however, forgot to reset the buzzer system, causing a problem in one of the matches my team played.

JNAC Question Distribution

I am wondering where I can find a question distribution for the JNAC (or Questions Unlimited/NAC in general) to study for the JNAC tournament with. I have tried looking on the QUnlimited website but have not found anything of use yet. I appreciate any advice anyone can give me.
