Re: HSAPQ National All Star Academic Tournament in 2010

I would be interested in more information concerning this tournament. This is something we could discuss once we get our finances in order. Charles, I hope you are doing well today (just saw that you had a loss). Please stop saying that MACA promotes bad quiz bowl. You know my feelings on this. It i...

Re: Is high school quizbowl in Missouri salvageable?

I'd be shocked if MSHSAA were enthusiastic at the prospect of recent high school graduates writing for them, especially for a conglomerate that is not a real company. You would have to either organize under the veneer of an organization to get your best bet with this, and then either lie about your...

Re: Is high school quizbowl in Missouri salvageable?

I haven't read through all this, but I am not sure if this makes any sense. Where is all this coming from? Does anyone care about the real story behind all this or would you rather just base your opinion on false rumors? Is this the Presidential election? Someone is spinning things in enormously inc...

Re: Missouri 08-09

I will say that I was not the one who advocated #13. It was put on the agenda by another coach. It kind of seemed reasonable at the time, just because I am not familiar with many students trying to do this. In 2006, Ladue (St. Louis school) won state playing very few tournaments. They ended the tour...

Re: Missouri 08-09

I certainly appreciate the comments here and am certainly willing to learn whatever I can learn from other states. It is true that most of our 400+ schools have no interest in attending any tournaments outside of the state. I do see your arguements for allowing travel. I would be interested in heari...

Re: Missouri 08-09

I finally signed on, hoping to understand from where the attacks on Missouri are coming. I as well as other coaches did not quite understand Matt Weiner's e-mail the other day. From what I am getting out of this discussion, the main concern is #13 which was put in place to make sure members were com...
