Re: Minnesota '19-'20

What does Minnesota quizbowl look like away from the metro area? (I mean, I know somewhat since I lived in the state for eight years, but I'm wondering what, if anything, has changed.) It's not great. KB still dominates most of the schools not from the Metro. Red Wing sent a team to SnowCAT at Carl...

Re: WAIT set available for Mirrors in the 2019-20 Season (HS Regular)

My team is attending the Chattahoochee CATT XIV tournament on Saturday, November 9. Are there any previous WAIT sets out there with a different name, and if not are there any other sets to which you would say your questions are more similar? This is the first year that a WAIT set has been produced ...

Three weeks ago, Shardul Rao (Mounds View), Brian Lin (Wayzata), and I (Wayzata) got together to record a podcast to discuss Minnesota quizbowl.

Re: Running Club Meetings

First of all, what is the best way to keep attendees in check? It often gets pretty noisy during meetings, even though we are a small club. There are a lot of side conversations going on and the players, especially the ones in my clique, are just chatting with their friends instead of actually list...

Re: Minnesota '19-'20

Since I would like to see a Minnesota annual thread not die immediately for once, I guess I will give my basic thoughts on the circuit this year. The Big 3: Wayzata: I think Wayzata will likely remain the best team in state this year and overall post a strong performance. Brian Lin is probably the s...

This will give us around two months to continue editing and make final changes to the set before it is able to be played starting on September 28th. UPDATE: As of August 9th, 96% of WAIT is now...

Re: GOLBEZ -- A Video Games Tournament (Saturday Night @ ICT and HSNCT 2019)

Is this going to remain a doubles tournament or will it be switched to triples like the ICT tournament was?
