Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that this is not the first time that NAQT has attempted to save face by not publicly addressing incidents related to its reputation. Although I am unsure of the exact details of the situation, when in 2012 a player was accused of cheating by viewing NAQT questi...

Re: Matt Bruce (cw: sexual assault, pedophilia)

As the female president/founder of a high school quiz bowl club, I think it is absolutely unacceptable that NAQT has not taken action against Matt Bruce in light of the substantial evidence of his predatory behavior. Notwithstanding the difficulty of finding witnesses to provide statements for the s...

Sure. To clarify, the newbie team will be your C team, right?

Maintaining packet confidentiality?

Apologies if this is not the right place to post this, but, if a tournament digitally distributes packets to rooms, how is confidentiality maintained? Is there a system for this?

The school is in Massachusetts, and as far as I have researched, there aren't very many high school quiz bowls in Massachusetts except for the regional tournaments at MIT and Harvard. I'm currently in ...
