Re: Blue Hen Invitational @ University of Delaware - 3/10

Well, I'm not arguing this anymore. I've said what I believe. It's [bleep]-ing quizbowl. As much as I enjoy it, I've got my priorities straight.

Re: Blue Hen Invitational @ University of Delaware - 3/10

I should have been clearer in my first post when I said "Nobody pays attention to whose buzzer system is being used." I was referring to the people who were actually conducting that particular playoff (which includes myself). The TD was not made aware of what room we had chosen to hold that playoff...

Re: Blue Hen Invitational @ University of Delaware - 3/10

As to the Caesar Rodney buzzer system being used for a playoff, you should have interrupted the round and asked to switch out the buzzer system if you were ready to leave. Coming in afterwards and berating everybody for using the system is...well, ludicrous. Nobody pays attention to whose buzzer sy...

Re: Blue Hen Invitational @ University of Delaware - 3/10

I went back and looked at the trash packet. Of the 20 tossups and 20 bonuses, all 20 tossups and 18 of the 20 bonuses had at least one post-2000 reference in them. Most of them had multiple post-2000 references. Questions about older stuff were specifically designed to include more current reference...

Re: BLASTOISE Mirror @ University of Delaware (4/23/11)

However, as this is originally a Canadian event, the folks at Lisgar have kindly given us permission to replace any "excessively Canadian" questions in the set with more Americanized ones of our own in order to accommodate the attendees of our mirror. So I don't get to play on bonuses about Brier-w...

Re: Penn Bowl Trash III General Discussion

I really enjoyed this tournament, so I want to start off by thanking UPenn for putting it on. :grin: There are many things that I could give praise to, but the result would be a very long and rambling post, so I will just put on my pessimist cap for a few minutes and talking about the few things I w...

Re: DWI 2011 @ University of Delaware (March 5, 2011)

Hi everyone -

Just wanted to let you guys know that we are reading your comments and taking them into consideration, and our lack of response thus far is because we are considering our options. We will post an update as soon as we make any decisions.

Re: THUNDER II at Penn 12/4/10

I enjoyed this tournament and thought it was solidly run, though there were 1-2 rooms with simply unacceptable moderators. Look, people should not be buzzing in halfway through Norse myth tossups and very reasonably guessing things from Hindu mythology; as a moderator, you should consider this a bi...

Re: DATE CHANGE: TERP (Maryland Fall Trash) 10/31/10

I just realized that I never commented on the date change. This won't be a problem for us - we're still planning to send 2-3 teams, perhaps leaning more towards 3 teams than 2. Per the lack of trash tournaments on the schedule this semester, I'm particularly looking forward to this, and I know that ...

Re: DOKTRINE-University of Pittsburgh-4/10

Yeah, Rob, you've got the people and placings right. I would also like to point out the fact that Greg had no negs the entire tournament and that Marisol had more powers (14) than anyone else in the tournament. All in all, I'm pretty happy with how things turned out.
