Re: Wolfpack Collegiate Novice (Raleigh, NC 9/30/17)

The Tardigrades team consists of players from UNC Wilmington who communicated to us that they haven't yet been confirmed as a registered organization with their university. We are not aware of any rule barring players from the same university competing in a tournament, even under a pseudonym, so we ...

Re: SQBS Help Thread

Is it possible to create a file with information about a quiz bowl tournament, without using SQBS, and then import or load that file into SQBS and have all of the data appear?

Re: 2015 PACE NSC: Question set discussion

I would like to note that, as has already been stated, "velocity" was used as a tossup in rounds 6 and 8, which should always probably be avoided, regardless of the scientific context in which the tossup was given. However, what I considered even more egregious was that the same clue was used for bo...

Re: 2015 HSNCT discussion

While there were some questions, like Glenn Greenwald, which I didn't think were appropriate, and others which I thought were trying too hard to be cute/creative at the expense of testing legitimate academic knowledge, this was definitely not the overall theme of the competition. This seems like a ...

Re: 2015 HSNCT discussion

In response to the post about history questions at this year's national tournament, I have a few thoughts on overall quality and some specific questions. In my opinion, the history questions, for the most part, had very relevant and knowable answer lines. However, this can be a good or a bad thing d...

Re: 2015 NHBB/USGO Discussion Thread

While this was my first NHBB, I have competed in regular Quiz Bowl for 5 years now and so will offer my insight into how well I felt the tournament was run. First of all, I loved the questions. Had I known that History Bowl was this engaging and entertaining, I would definitely have participated in ...

Re: Quinterest: Hassle-free Database Search

Did something go wrong with Quinterest's search function recently? I don't remember this being a problem in the past, but now for some reason if I search two separate words which I know are in a question the question does not appear, although if I search for one word the question appears even though...

Re: HSQBRank 2014-15

I am also wondering if the Tarheel Cup stats were included, as multiple teams had higher PPB's than Dorman and yet Dorman is in this list and they are not.

Re: Quinterest: Hassle-free Database Search

Just wondering why PACE NSC and LIST only have first round tossups entered onto Quinterest instead of the whole packet. This might be a problem with other packets as well, I didn't check, but is it on purpose?

Quiz Bowl Tournament Cost

I'm doing a project for my calculus class at school and I was wondering what some of the normal costs are for quiz bowl tournaments. More than one example would be helpful. Thank You.
