I'm glad to hear RM will be back in the mix--we missed you last year. who do you guys think the t...

Also, not to detract from Daichi's (ig)noble achievement in receiving the neg prize, but I believe my pal JOSHUA HAHM a.k.a Jeff Goldblum a.k.a The Fly had 13 negs as well -- unless I'm completely wrong, which very well may be. In any case, congratulations to Daichi (and maybe Hahm) on his/their ama...

Congrats to Ian and the rest of the GDS team for a well-run and organized tournament Also, amazing grats to Whitman A for a really tense final. Seriously that is probably the most exciting game I've played in in the past 4 years. Also my guess is that you would have won if it weren't for a few screw...

We understand (we have the same problem all the time) and we very much appreciate your offer; we'll probably take you up on it depending on how many moderators we have by New Year's. Also, like Felix said, if Jacob hasn't sent out invitations yet, please reply to this post and I'll send out a genera...

yeah we Housh kids are so cool that we only have 14 teams signed up for a field of 48, this being approximately a month before the tournament. Promotion is definitely our bag. So please sign up for the Housh Classic '08 -- you won't regret it. Well at least not at this juncture. :grin: I didn't noti...

Yo nice post Naren. A few things -- I'd have to agree that some of the rules varied significantly between rooms and that some rules perplexed me (such as the nonverbal nonsubstantive conferring = neg rule). Additionally, the distribution for some rounds was a bit off, and I thought there were an ino...

Thanks Dan. Also, the fact is that we didn't really have that many returning members coming to help us Saturday, so that in order to staff all the rooms and keep the 51-team tournament running we had to train and assign a group of volunteers (that was smaller than we'd hoped) within a few days (and ...

As of now, we have 40 teams registered for our tournament. One important announcement: WE NEED MODERATORS! It would greatly help us have the max 10 rounds if some teams could provide moderators on Saturday. Help moderating from anyone with quizbowl experience would be greatly appreciated. If you hav...

I think this year we may go ahead and have all teams play 10 rounds, instead of alternating for 5 rounds each.

Still tentative, though...and I'm sorry to hear Gonzaga has taping the same day. Try and make it though :cool:
