Re: DATE CHANGED - SoCal DEES Mirror (Open) - Jan. 11 @ UCLA

ASU would like to register for DEES, we possibly would have open spots on our team/be down to join with other people.

Re: Distribution

It's simply the number of rooms that converted the tossup / the number of rooms that heard the tossup. Basically the YA Lit that isn't super famous/has been made into a movie had a lower conversion rate than Math Comp. I'm pretty sure out of every tossup read, those two YA Lit tossups were the only ...

Re: Distribution

In the IS-A tournament I moderated for this weekend. 6 out of the 11 rounds used contained a Young Adult "Lit" tossup. Of these 6, the conversion stats: 2/6 0/7 0/8 8/8 5/5 5/5 Leaving aside the discussion of whether NAQT should use YA "Lit", if the goal is conversion, then 3 out of the 6 questions ...

Re: West Coast Schedule Discussion

The work you do in the high school circuit is important as well. Imagine how much easier it would be if a thriving high school circuit led those players starting and/or joining active clubs at Arizona, Arizona State, Northern Arizona, and other area schools? All of the sudden it makes it easier to ...

West Coast Schedule Discussion

I am curious as to whether people see the west coast as one giant circuit or fragmented into NorCal and SoCal. Being poor desert folk, it is impractical for us to drive 10+ hours to the Bay Area more than a couple of times a year. It is obviously in our best interest to have all tournaments hosted i...

Re: Minnesota Open/Penn Intergalatic Mirror - UCSD - 11/19/11

We will make an effort to go to this. If I am able to come I would like to run Eyes as Mike's creation is a masterwork not short of the original art pieces themselves.

I would also be willing to be a free agent, but I don't claim to know things.
