Sounds great. I especially like the random placement of ten lightning buzzes, because hey, you can never prime the buzzer too much.

How many teams are you expecting?

There's a 10-question round of purely lightning questions at the beginning, followed by the other questions. 48 teams are expected, no idea on current numbers though.

There are spots left, and registration is still open. I'll try to get a list of teams coming, but I don't have a list at the moment from my coach.

WJ attendence

Post by bigtrain »

WJ will be coming with 3 teams.
According to our coach, this is the first C team we have ever brought to a tournament. This may not seem like alot or important to many of you, but "don't rain on my parade."

Wow. Three teams. I wish we had a C team. For that matter I wish we had a complete B team. Well, I guess we'll see you there (though I don't know if ER B is coming).

Congrats to TJ, and to the Blake folks for getting us outta there at 2:30. Wow.

I feel compelled to post about a reader error in one of our prelim games:

Reader: This apostle to the genitals. . .
Player: What??
Reader: Oh. . . God!

In the semis, Thomas Jefferson A defeated Walter Johnson A with a score of 260-210. Richard Montgomery A defeated Gonzaga 220-200. In the finals, Thomas Jefferson A defeated Richard Montgomery A with a score of 270-190.
Blake did a great job hosting this tournament, and it was great that we were able to finish before 3:00.
