Re: CBI Regionals!

Now, if you're talking about just going to CBI not in lieu of anything, the only thing I'd say to that is that CBI is a corrupt, horrible organization which is clearly doing everything it can (which used to be a considerable amount) to prevent people from enjoying quizbowl outside of CBI. I am unaw...

Re: CBI Regionals!

I actually found the CBI tournament at Jacksonville to be pretty fun, except for the occasional ridiculous questions. For example, they didn't provide pencil or paper, and we got a bonus (with a 5-second time limit for bonuses) asking what 35% off of $18 is, and I was just like "uh...." I felt that...

For the first time in god knows how long, we are not wasting our time with this. My wife is the Student Activities Coordinator at IIT (Illinois Institute of Technology). A group of students there wanted to compete in College Bowl Regionals . . . She decided that CBI is too expensive and too far awa...

I think there is a problem with the tournament schedule being saturated. While it is nice to have more tournaments to attend, the fact that...

I don't know what Hentzel is doing with his other tournament dates, but CUT is a Carleton event that has occupied the same date for the past 10 years. The date works for Carleton's schedule and helps teams to anticipate when an event will take place every year, like MLK at Michigan in January and NA...

Re: Hey: stop running high school tournaments for colleges

To say nothing of the apparently secretly-announced CUT at Carleton, which was not announced to the public until two months after Illinois Novice was scheduled on the same date. CUT is likewise competing for some of the same schools, and best of all is undermining a NOVICE TOURNAMENT, competing for...

I just finished reading the novel upon which this movie was based (released under the title _A Question of Attraction_ in the US). All eight copies my city library possesses were not checked out at the time, indicating it's probably not hard to find. The book is an easy read and a bit dull at times....

I remember Andy T. Greeley being a tournament all star and Pat Moonen Sportsmanship Award winner at CBI NCT 2004 for the University of Washington. Now, I see he is back leading the UW team and region 14 in points listed as a senior undergraduate on the team roster. (I thought he was a senior in '04)...
