Re: Geography Only Question Set (FOHS HÀNGEO)

Will cross-country links and ocean questions both be in the other section?

Re: community question clinic

What do you all think of this question? One people of this area was found to use a bilabial trilled affricate which they hid as it was mocked by neighbouring peoples. A road through this area gives access to the Mapinguari National Park near Lábrea, but also allowed access to forests that were turne...

Re: Why isn't Bollywood canon?

However, the main argument for this OP was trying to include more Bollywood movies in the trash distribution, as I don't know much about Indian art film in the first place. The other thing that was also on my mind yesterday was the India film tossup at NSC that included Lagaan along with Apu Trilog...

Re: 2018-19 NC discussion

Here are my rankings for the best high school teams in North Carolina: 1. East Chapel Hill High School (Chapel Hill)- I do play for this team. However, there is a strong argument to be made for East. We won Bonfire of the Manatees. We finished the Enloe tournament 5/18, with a 5-4 record, all those ...

Re: How to Buzz Faster

***** In no particular order***** 1: Buzz with your index finger. One of my teammates who was on the 2017 National Ocean Sciences Bowl championship team told me to try this. Unlike [pyramidal] quiz bowl, success in [non-pyramidal] ocean sciences bowl is heavily dependent on buzzer speed (which, in ...

Re: community question clinic

Would alternating "this status" with "one of these people" be all right?

Re: community question clinic

My apologies for reviving this thread, but it seems to have been revived before. These are a few HS tossups that I have no plans to submit to anything, and there doesn't seem to be a separate version of this for high school questions. It’s not an ethnicity, but Grace Marks is the governor’s servant ...

Re: Mixing Up Teams

The middle school I did quiz bowl at (Smith, in NC) played with unstacked teams for at least 1 tournament of the year, and sometimes more. I thought it worked alright, but then I don't really have a lot to compare it with. Another way the coach at Smith divided teams in tournaments was to make an A ...
