Re: 2014 HSNCT discussion

GW happened to have a bye that round, but we watched the exact same issue come up on the tornado bonus. I don't remember which team it was, but F5 was answered and almost everyone watching was fairly confused as to why it wasn't accepted or at least prompted. Also, did anyone else think that the &qu...

Re: All-time all-state teams

West Virginia is easy to start with Nick Brumfield from Parkersburg a couple of years ago and Ryan Humphrey from George Washington this year. After that, the debate is Jess McDaniel (this year's GW's 2nd scorer) and assorted players from a long time ago who I've mostly forgotten. I suppose Weston P...

Re: Where Will You Be Going To College Next Year? 2013-14

I'll join in on this thread. I will be going to Duke University next fall, and I would be happy to keep playing quiz bowl. If anyone here could share the contact information for any of Duke's current members, I would definitely appreciate it.

Re: West Virginia 2013-14

With Ripley’s tournament this past weekend, West Virginia finally had its first in-state quiz bowl tournament of 2014. The morning-round format was 10 tossups without bonus, a worksheet, and ten tossups with bonus. The afternoon rounds dropped the worksheet and switched the format to 20/20. As for t...

Re: West Virginia High School Tournaments for rest of 2014

Thanks for posting these here Fred, it would definitely be nice to see some new teams compete in Wv. If anyone is curious, Gw A will be going to Ripley, Bridgeport, and States, but only our B team will be at Phillip Barbour and Ravenswood. Also, Tom, I don’t know about Bridgeport’s format yet, but R...

Re: West Virginia 2013-14

Just to clarify to both of you, those of us at George Washington are also not fans of the West Virginia format. At times, it frustratingly seems as if we are the only ones that see any issue with it, so its refreshing to see others with this shared opinion. The format definitely places far too much ...

Matt graduated from South Charleston last spring. As did, I believe, all other members of South Charleston's A-team from 2012-2013.

Re: West Virginia 2013-14

The format was 20 Questions per round, with no worksheet and neither powers nor negs. Tossups 1-15 were worth 10 points each and they had no bonuses attached. Tossups 16-20 were worth 10 points each and they had standard 3-part bonuses attached without the chance for bounce-back. As for the tourname...

Re: West Virginia Quiz Bowl Kickoff (09/28/13)

Very sorry for the statistics delay, but the full stats should be finished and posted by this weekend. There were a few issues slowing down the process, but the full team stats and individual stats should be up by the end of this Saturday. In the mean time, the cursory results (top ten) of the tourn...

I'm sorry, I didn't notice that the packet conflicted, and please understand that I am rather new to this site in general. I am also obviously not the TD for this tournament, and I was just posting this on their behalf in hopes of recruiting more teams to the field as they are a family member. I app...

Re: Kentucky 2013-14

Considering the close proximity of our two states and that some schools from Kentucky have competed in WV before, would you be willing to add the West Virginia Quiz Bowl Kickoff to your schedule on 9/28? Dunbar has actually already registered to bring up to three teams, and I feel that since Charles...

Re: West Virginia 2013-14

Matt, I am with George Washington High School's team from Charleston, WV, and we are definitely interested in bringing a team to compete. We will have to discuss it with our school to make sure the funding is approved and that there is nothing conflicting, but either myself or our coach should be ab...
