Southern California 2019-20 Discussion

The 2018-19 season is coming to an end soon, and to (hopefully) increase hype for the SoCal circuit, here's the thread for the 2019-20 SoCal season season for things that don't pertain to scheduling.

Re: Southern California 2019-2020 Scheduling Discussion

On another note - how many HSNCT qualifying events will be in SoCal?

Re: Southern California 2019-2020 Scheduling Discussion

We also should try to have 3 NHBB tournaments this season with one in OC, SD, and LA. Regarding having 3 NHBB events, would the OC event be running B Set, or C Set? My two cents here, but an OC event isn't really gonna be ideal to have simply cause the "local" OC circuit is pretty miniscule compare...

Re: Running Club Meetings

Hey! It's great to see that you're taking charge when it comes to improving your school's QB team. For your first question, try to have a short break during practice (say a 5-minute break for an hour practice session) in order to essentially "push" the side conversations away from serious practice t...

NAQT IS/HS Level Math

I'm new to doing quizbowl (I've only done NHBB to date), and I'm beginning my QB grind. How should I approach to prepping Math?

Nah - I'd say it was justified. They were really badly written.

Have you considered that you committed plagiarism not only by failing to cite your sources, but by blatantly ripping off previous questions and attempting to make cute edits to them to make them "original" in the first place?
yes

Re: Books & Material

It's already too late in your scenario (sorry about that!) - but I'd also like to mention that search engines like QuizDB are also a great resource for last minute stuff. YouTube channels like Kings & Generals, Extra Credits, and Historia Civilis are also great last-minute things to binge or play in...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

Here was my main plan for NHBB Online: Have a tournament with "compilation" packets where we'd collect a bunch of previous tossups and make relevant and normal edits to them to prevent them from cheating and whatnot. I also had the idea of throwing in some housewrites too. I promoted it on the Disco...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

Final Results: 1st Place - Sam Brochin 2nd Place - Conor Thompson 3rd Place - Nate Rybner, Aadit Juneja, Alan Wu, Steven Wang And if you are wondering, the finals were a 15 TU packet. Do I plan on ever hosting a Discord Tournament like this? Well yes, but but I'll probably just go for only housewrit...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

Due to time constraints - we will be using older, obscure packets for the WC and finals game in order to not cause further delay.
Due to this - we will not upload any packets publicly.
Thank you for understanding!

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

A few clarifications: - I just want to make clear that NHBB/IHBB has no affiliation or endorsement of the event. (This has been put in the first lines of the registration form and in the Discord server) - I have made shortsighted decisions as to the creation of the first packet and clues in specific...

Re: 2019 NHBB Discord Tournament

I probably should put a public clarficiation. Based off of IHBB/NHBB packets is defined as basing our housewrites from the rossups tyles and type of topics that you would expect at an IHBB/NHBB match. Out of the 90 tossups we wrote, only 2 were direct copies and we redacted those 2 in the copies tha...

Haven't recieved my NAQT Account Activation E-Mail

I haven't recieved my NAQT Account Activation E-mail. I registered a day ago, and have not recieved anything. I contacted NAQT (at register@naqt.com and naqt@naqt.com) and haven't recieved any response.
What should I do? Should I delete my account and make a new one?
