Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

For people who take Latin and have no idea what the first clue was talking about, the "separation" clue could have caused quite a few negs, since the ablative of separation is a very common construction in Latin, much more so than the dative of separation. I might just be speaking for myself though.

Re: 2019 HSNCT discussion

May I please see the tossup on the dative case? I negged this with ablative on "separation" and just want to see some of the clues.

Re: MSNCT predictions

This (https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament/t ... _id=165342) performance from Churchill seems to point to good things at MSNCT. Also this (https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament/t ... _id=157752) from a (mostly middle school) Hunter C.

Re: MSNCT predictions

I think either Challenger-Almaden or Churchill will win. Teams to watch out for are probably Hunter, Hopkins, Midtown (I know), Aptakisic, Quest, and Barrington.

Re: DATE POLL: ILLIAC Collegiate/Open Online Mirror

Are high schoolers allowed to play in this tournament? I wasn't able to attend the Groger Ranks HS-only mirror.

Re: Mythology

Just in terms of Greco-Roman myth, buying copies of Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" and Morford and Lenardon's "Classical Mythology" would probably be a good idea, as well as reading the Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid (obviously other sources like the Theogony and Metamorphoses have already been mentioned)...

Is there any chance of an online mirror happening for this? I know that it's not customary, but I was just wondering.

Re: OCTAVIAN - A Classics Tournament

Considering that it has already been played at one site (VCU), do you think that there will be an online mirror of this in the near future? I know that I would love to give this tournament a shot, but, like so many others, can’t attend an actual mirror site.

Thank you,

Re: NASAT Online Mirror 2 (7/28 to 7/29)

Hello everyone, I just put my name down as a free agent for this mirror of NASAT. First off, am I allowed to compete in this as a middle schooler (well, technically my MS career is done)? Second, if it is okay for me to play, I'd be glad to join any team that needs a history/fine arts/mythology play...
