Re: TJ Electronic Scoresheets

As the primary statskeeper at the AQBL-hosted September ERIS mirror, I would like to thank Josh and Kevin a lot for their creation of this stats system. Every part of it, ranging from the control room, to the error-checking basic sheets, worked incredibly well, greatly minimizing the errors and incr...

Re: IKEA HS Open Mirror

Yes, schools can sign up multiple teams, as long as every player on each team stays on that team and doesn't change teams throughout the day.

Just curious on what people's thoughts on the new Yale team are, because even though they are losing all of their A team from last year, they do get both Fred and Daniel who are both extremely good players (at HS difficulty, at least)

Also, if you are willing to cash in some money, NAQT's frequency list for literature is a decently complete list of books and their authors. I do not believe there to be plot summaries in the lists though.

Re: Preseason Discussion

I would definitely like to agree with the strength of Stanford Online A, as they retain their entire roster from last year. They did have a somewhat disappointing finish last year but with such a young roster they can probably do quite well for years to come.

Re: Running Club Meetings

At Smith last year, we generally set up a cycle of players and subbed people in and out every 8 questions with everyone not in usually on protobowl.

Usually, when we’re short on time, we shout buzz or slap the tables.
