Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: COTKU at UT-Chattanooga 10/18/08

Just to clarify some of my statements which I think stirred up a few people... I do think that the COTKU questions were good, for extremely good players/teams. Clearly FSU, South Florida and others did OK on the question set, and I think Charlie did a good job of running the tournament as always. I ...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: COTKU at UT-Chattanooga 10/18/08

This set kicked our asses. (speaking for my team) That's a good thing; I wish something like that had happened to me as a freshman. When you realize a set is "kicking your ass," you have two legitimate choices: 1. (Preferred)- Realize how little you actually know, resolve to learn more, and take ca...

For anyone interested, here are the directions from the e-mail. Getting to campus, follow the ...

I'd like to say that the tournament was great, both in question quality and administration. I liked getting to play power matched rounds at the end, its alway more fun when the rounds are close, but I think it completely messed up the individual stats. Mind you, individual stats are already broken b...

Due to poor planning on my part, amoung other things, the questions didn't get as far along as they needed to be, so we are going to be mirroring Penn Bowl for the questions instead. I will shuffle questions arround to make sure that the overall difficulty is consistant with other Southeastern tourn...

Georgia Tech MLK Invitational - 1/20/2007

This is the preliminary anouncement for the 2007 Georgia Tech MLK tournament. The tournament will be held the Saturday after Martin Luther King Day so as to avoid conflict with Sunshine State (this will conflict with Penn Bowl, but due to geographic isolation, we doubt this will be a problem).
