Preseason Discussion

Matt Siff and I decided to write a little preseason writeup of the roughly top 20-25 teams in the country going into next season, grouped by region. Here it is below: DC Metro Area Region: Blair A and B Blair is scary. Whatever lineup they put, whether with Matt and Shawn, or with Chris in, they are...

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

Could you post conversion stats on "Ivory Coast", "Mutiny on the HMS Bounty", and the geography bonus on the Azores/Canary Islands (Rd 1 or 2 I think)

Re: DC Metro Area Discussion - 2019-2020

Matt’s commentary of the teams for next year was spot-on! Although the region will be losing a lot of talent (Anson, Olivia, Daniel, Ian, Dan among others) I believe that this year’s field is extremely competitive as well. A few words from me: 1. GDS is going to be VERY, VERY good next season and I ...

Re: NSC 2019 Set Discussion

I really enjoyed the set and thank you to all who contributed to this set! Could I see the tossups on "Joy Luck Club" and "Pinkerton" because for Joy Luck Club, I did read the novel and felt that I should've got it earlier and I want to see the clues before I got it. I would like to see "Pinkerton" ...

Is Georgetown Winter the same thing as the Georgetown Spring Tournament run on BHSAT?
I believe Georgetown Winter was run on WHAQ III: http://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/5379/
