CO 2017 Team Formation

Elaborate on the merits of specific tournaments or have general theoretical discussion here.

CO 2017 Team Formation

The arms race continues and people have already formed CO teams. Let's not keep this in the dark:

I'm not entirely sure if I can attend at this point in time (about 50% certainty), but I'm interested in playing and I'm looking for teammates. I can get dank buzzes on auditory arts and less dank buzzes on mythology and no buzzes on literally everything else.

I would definitely like to attend CO 2017, which would be my first ever CO. If you're interested in having a history/religion player on your team, feel free to PM me or send me an email at weijia05 at yahoo dot com.

Weijia knows things and will also write good questions promptly, so you should definitely take him for your team.

I don't see why I won't play CO again.

Don't expect me to get sick buzzes in large quantities, but I'm an ok enough surface generalist at this level that I'll get a decent amount of points. Looking for a fun group of people that can win a few games, especially if we've never teamed up before.

High holy heck it's early, so I don't even know if I'll be in the country next summer at this point. But if I am in the US/ can cheaply get to Chicago I sure will. I do lit, vis arts, and now, post-CO-2016, religion (plus a new, improved grasp of architecture and photography).

I'd definitely like to take a crack at CO should I be able to make it and I don't see why I wouldn't be able to at this point. I "know" science (not cs though) and Judaism, and not a whole lot else at this difficulty. Let me know if you're interested in my mediocre offerings.

Nothing will deter me from playing CO. Despite what preconceived notions some people or editors may have, my questions are not as terrible as they used to be. I smell nice and and I'm fun to be around. If you're lucky there will be snacks. Thanks for your consideration.

Hey, I'll probably play CO in 2017. I'm good at American history, film, and some other scattered stuff.

I am also quite handsome. You want me on your team.

I likely will play this. I will almost certainly get some stuff based on my adequate skills in low level generalism. Nobody can out-moderately underachieve my underwhelming knowledge base...except me of course (BWAHAHAHA). As far as my aforementioned "achievements" go, I was in the top four players of any quizbowl team I've ever played on, have won every game that my team has scored more points that the other, and have completed almost every tournament that I have started. Shan Kothari, noted University of Minnesota quizbowl player, has referred to me as "Jason", and Sam Bailey, noted University of Minnesota quizbowl player has referred to me as "you". As president of the University of Minnesota quizbowl team, I can get every question on the University of Minnesota Student Activities' Office reimbursement forms and also the process of renting a university vehicle from Fleet Services. How will this help at CO? How naive to think that it wouldn't...are you the editors? Depending who you are, you may be, but let's remember that "you" is me as put once by Sam Bailey, noted University of Minnesota quizbowl player. In summation, I promise to quiz"bowl" my way to a perfect strike.

Jason is cool, even though this post would reasonably suggest otherwise.

This is also what Jason's emails about practice read like, which is why I haven't attended this semester.

So I meant to post much earlier, but I haven't had a lot of free time. ANYWAY, if you need someone who is mildly good at literature and can sometimes make buzzes in other categories, I'm your guy (also I'm pretty good about getting my stuff written in a timely manner).

Hey, put Weijia Cheng on your CO team! I can pretty much guarantee that he'll get every religion question you don't neg him out of, plus lots of history, econ, and other random things.

I just discovered that I can make CO this year, so if you want a humanities player and/or need someone to write a bunch of questions for your packet, shoot me an email.

Due to an unfortunate scheduling conflict, Eric has had to drop from our team, so we're now playing with Jonathan.

I'm a recently graduated HS senior who can probably 10 a few things in fine arts and Roman history. Basically if you're looking to have fun (possibly try a little bit) and need a teammate, I'd love to play.
