Re: Women in Quizbowl Panel Discussion @ HSNCT Saturday Night

I really want to be there, but this is unfortunately going to conflict with META and Imaginary Landscapes. Is it possible this could get recorded for those of us who can't be there and posted online later? We do plan to record this and post it online later. We know that there are a bunch of other s...

Re: Women in Quizbowl Panel Discussion @ HSNCT Saturday Night

A more personal note: as a boy who is helping to organize this event, I want to see other men come to this event. Sophia was clear to me while we were planning this that there aren’t enough women currently playing quizbowl to change quizbowl without the help of male allies. Quizbowl needs more men t...

The discussion will be in room M101 at the Marquis on Saturday, May 25th, from 8:30 PM to 9:30 PM, about an hour after afternoon games at HSNCT end. Here's what Sophia has to say about the even...

Re: Terrapin available for Spring 2019 mirrors

GDS and a couple of other high school teams were unable to play EFT at UMD because of UMD room reservation policies. Will UMD Quizbowl be working to be sure that they will have worked around said policies and be allowed by the school to host a high school mirror of Terrapin?

Re: 2018 NSC Set Discussion Thread

Thank you so much for writing such an excellent set, and I really enjoyed playing it. A few things, though: The music tossups on 9/11 and Psalms were extremely transparent very in power. Specifically for Psalms, there are no other Biblical texts that people would write music for, and it says so much...

Re: New Mobile App -- Tycho: Play Quizbowl and Science Bowl

Will we see the ability to mix difficulty levels at some point? I like to practice on open and college questions simultaneously so that I can learn things but also not feel godawful at the game. Like this, it would be nice if we could mix questions from different tournaments, so we can just read qu...

Re: Specific Question Discussion

On the colleges question from round 5: I buzzed on hospitals before FERPA and after the bit about personal information and am pretty sure that hospitals and colleges are both correct at that point in the line, even if the line before that eliminated hospitals.

Re: 2016 WHAQ Question-Specific Discussion

Just played in the Georgetown tournament on Saturday. The main thing I remember is that the president of the Philippines needs to be updated, as it is now Rodrigo Duterte and not Benigno Aquino as is written in the packet.
