Re: International Expansion of Quizbowl

There are also a bunch of DOD sponsored high schools all over Korea, Japan, Okinawa, and Guam. I'm not sure if they have anything that resembles QB. I began my quizbowl career from a DOD middle school on Guam. The island has a surprisingly active "Academic Challenge Bowl" circuit at both the middle...

Re: High School Player Poll

Re: Virginia NASAT 2018?

I have preexisting travel plans over Easter weekend that may or may not change before the 31st. Given that NAQT States takes place when much of Virginia is on spring break, I imagine there might be other interested players who have similar potential conflicts. Will there be another way to get consid...

Re: All-World Predictions

Interesting to note that over the past three years, a large majority the top 40 teams in the pre-nats rankings have had players among the 40 recognized to the all-world list. 27 of the top 40 teams were represented in the all-worlds in 2014-2015, followed by 31 and 32 in the years since then. The or...
