Re: DOKTRINE-University of Pittsburgh-4/10

OK, the set's up on Wastebin, so I feel like I should do a brief apology. First of all, I'm well aware that the set had several major problems and a lot of minor ones. Question difficulty varied wildly, both within packets and across the set. Bonuses were especially bad; most bonuses featured either...

Given that our maximum field consists of fewer than six teams, we are considering moving DOKTRINE back to either Sunday, April 18th, which would conflict with ACF Nationals, or Saturday, April 24th, which would conflict with TRASHionals. Would there be greater interest in DOKTRINE if it were on eith...

Major kudos for running this. I had a blast and so did my team. Considering the sheer size of the thing both in terms of question-writing and the field, you all did a fantastic job. There were some question-writing issues and some logistical ones, but overall I really hope you guys keep doing this.

We realize that it's during ICT weekend. Unfortunately, that was the date that conflicted with our organizational and academic schedule the least. I realize that this means that several teams may not be able to attend but we can't run on any other date.

Someone successfully argued that it sounded funnier and was less accurate than "north east" at practice last Thursday and that DOKTRINE as a whole sounded funnier than Ironhead 2k10. Other than that, nothing.

Formatting guidelines: Every team must supply a packet. Tossups should be 6-7 lines in length in 10-point Times New Roman font. Any less than that and we won't have enough to work with in final editing, and any more and we'll have too much. The occasional blip in question length is fine, but if half...
