Who here went to ACE in 2006?

I was wondering because I went to Maryville and I don't know who I met there that is on the board. I'm Charles Dees from North Kansas City.

Whoa... set a year in advance. In Missouri, most tournaments aren't officially announced until 2 months before they take place. You Illinois ferners must be ultra-organized.

And I'm just Charlie. No et al on this screenname. Although I'll try to get more MO people on here once the year starts

About the New Trier Singles: Is that date set, because normally I would love to go, but we're maybe considering Vandy, which is on the same day. I will keep in touch about your regular team tournament. How hard is the math, because I hear about how you get 30 second calculations, so you do higher le...

I've posted some of your tournaments on the Missouri forum, but please keep me updated. Also, http://www.moaca.org/tournaments/ has a growing, incomplete tournament schedule for Missouri. None of my top 3 tournaments are listed yet, but I would recommend UM-Rolla's tournament because they write real...

Mentalchocolate, thank you for the invite. While I doubt any MO teams could go to your tournament (we already have two in state that day) I would be interested in going to a good Kentucky tournament (i.e. no quick recall nonsense) so if you could keep me posted on them I would love to come, and I'd ...

Nice to meet you Andy (in a way) after hearing everything about you Wehrman kids from Mr. Allen. Update on your alma mater: I do think that this year we'll finally be good enough to go to nationals. I'm a junior this year and it's unfortunate to say that last year I was close to being a one man team...

Missouri forbids teams from playing before October 21, so none of us could go to that tournament

In Missouri the reason we're given is that they can't make exceptions for any activity, so we're under the same restrictions as sports (we also can only play games 14 days a year). It's a stupid reason because we are not a sport, but whatever. I personally think that it's because the activities gove...

I know at our tournament (NKC) last year we had 2 teams from Oklahoma, and in past years there have been teams from all over. At Savannah the second place team this year was from Ft. Smith, Arkansas, and they usually get teams from all over (I actually think they've had a team from Georgia once). I ...

Well, as far as Savannah goes, it's probably out of your range too (it's about 50 minutes north of NKC). And the traveling rule is partially correct. We can travel 250 "air miles" out of the state, but that's it. And there are a bunch of other dumb rules that do their best to forbid us from attendin...

I don't discount Monteverdi's phenomenal influence on post-rennaissance music, and he is definitely much more question worthy than Peri (there's probably a reason Dafne didn't stick around.) All I'm saying is they should retire the question "What is the first opera, etc." about Monteverdi's Orfeo be...

Another one I thought of that I've seen frequently. Any question dealing with the first opera. All of these questions are looking for something related to Monteverdi and "Orfeo," but really the first opera is by a composer named Jacopo Peri and is called "Dafne." The reason no one knows about it is ...

People should go to MO tournaments

For teams that are competitive there are a couple of tournaments in Missouri that you should seriously consider attending because they are all very well run and they draw some of the best competition in the region. Those tournaments are: Washington University (usually in January) North Kansas City H...

well no it wasn't at PACE, but I've heard it a bunch of other places (ACE camp, various tournaments, practice questions, etc.) We didn't go to any Nationals this year

One question that I think should be retired is "It begins with "when earth rocks in her final convulsion"..." for the Qu'ran. I hear that question over and over because people think it's an interesting quote, but in reality it's wrong because the Qu'ran doesn't start with that quote. I had to dig th...

As a Missourian I feel a need to post here. While your predictions are maybe valid I would like to point out a few things: A) You're really ignoring the fact that while Ladue is losing their phenomenon that was Jason, they still have a bunch of people who can answer the questions. B) It's just kind ...

This one lost us conference: On a bonus, we were asked what band Gladys Knight was with. Everyone told our captain "the pips" but he couldn't hear me because I was choking on soda, so he said quite confidently "the pimps." We never forgave him for that. Another at ACE camp: In Social Studies II clas...
