The people (who were very big sports fans) that I talked to said they were able to ge...

Re: 2011 HSNCT discussion

I remember one room we played in (I think it was Chicago E with Jeff reading) had the most annoying ticking/buzzing noise throughout our round due to the construction on the floor above, which was easily the lowlight of the tournament for me. I definitely agree that the Atlanta site was better than ...

Re: SoCal 2010-2011

If you look at this year's TWAIN and CBCT, Alex Krolewski (~50 PPG and ~70 PPG respectively) is the guy who hasn't been showing up lately due to other stuff. I expect with him, our bonus conversion will go up at least a point since we tend to miss sci/geo/US knowledge without him.
