Re: New NAQT Individual Player National Championship Tournam

I'm just wondering, is there any way that a tournament participant here would get access to SCT DII questions? My state organization has said they will not allow me to play in the state championship tournament if I play in this due to question security issues so I'm leaning towards having to cancel ...

Re: Caught in difficulty limbo

As an extension to this post, what college packets would be the best to practice for teams trying to get good at PACE/HSNCT level? The answerlines in ACF Regs and MUT seem a bit too obscure (especially towards the end) while ACF Fall seems a bit easier than HS nationals...

Re: Great Quizometrical Survey

After the Texas State Championship results, it seems as if the best team in Texas is now St. Marks. They defeated St. Johns (390-240) and Taylor (390-225) and LASA (400-305) at the state championship. Of course, HSNCT is a whole another tournament, and I hope (for my own team's sake) the defeat we s...

You could also try getting regional coordinators in each area who could notify you if some team on the list has played without their best player or split (for example, on yo...

Re: HSQBRank 2016-2017

Mr. Morlan, have you thought about using more than just ppb to do rankings? Perhaps you could lower the number of teams ranked, but use a more holistic process to rank them. Your rankings are very important, as they are used to seed the PACE national championship, so its vital that they are as accur...
