Re: Resobowl - A Charity Music Tournament for BLM (Good Call NYC)

This looks like a great idea for a tournament, and I'm excited to play. I have a few questions. When will the tournament take place? How many rounds can we expect to play? And how many players can play on each team at a time? Thanks.

Re: (8/22/2020) 2020 MS Kickoff Tournament, hosted by LONE STAR

Relative to other sets that have been used at online middle school tournaments (RAFT, WAIT, MVS RAMS, James Blair IV), how difficult are these questions.

Re: Advanced Statistics Google Sheet Template

I found some formula errors that occur when downloading the template and opening it in Excel. I am pretty sure I have found a solution to this problem, and I will implement the solution as soon as possible. EDIT: Update: This has been addressed. The only remaining Sheets-to-Excel conversion problem ...

This year, I made frequency lists based on the tossups available on QuizDB. I hope that these can be a good, free option for anyone looking to quickly gain familiarity with a given canon of a given category or subcategory at the high school level.

Would it be useful to append the following to the first sentence? ...nor tolerate those who do.

Online Tournament Honor Pledge

The idea of an honor pledge that all players must sign before playing in an online tournament was recently raised on discord.
