Re: Specialty Design Corp Buzzers

Ben, I Googled "Quik Pro Buzzer System," which is Specialty Design's signature buzzer, and got a link to www.quikprosystems.com, which is now apparently owned by 4 D Designs of Columbus, GA. Their new number is listed there. If you have something other than a Quik Pro, they may be able to point you ...

Re: The State of Good Quizbowl, State-by-State

As for the Virginia Beach/Norfolk/Newport News area, as far as I remember, the individual VHSL districts place restrictions on competitions during the season, limited to five non-VHSL events. I am not sure if the restriction lasts all year, until VHSL State, or a team's elimination from VHSL play. N...

Re: "Unsporting" attempts to delay the game

If timeout usage becomes an issue that potentially creates an unsporting delay, perhaps the moderator or scorekeeper should denote "TO" beside each team's running score on the scoresheet to properly document when a timeout was used, and the sheet can thus serve as a reference in case a team tries to...

Re: DC/MD/VA Date Claim '11-'12

The VHSL District Deadline is January 28, and the Regional one is February 11 (though Districts and Regions can hold their championships earlier). State is usually the last Saturday in February, as to avoid the early March SAT date, as well as W&M's Spring Break.
