Re: IHOP II @ Irvine High (10/27/12) [IS-120]

We will probably be sending at least 1-2 teams with some buzzers. Even if the school decides not to send teams, at least one team will be there.

Re: Carnal Embrace VI at Arcadia High School (2/18/12)

If it is moved to the 20th (not 19th for many people have church), I believe Torrey Pines may be able to send at least one team.

Re: Writing Questions

Following up on the discussion about studying for quiz bowl, would studying for different categories differ in style? For instance, as a sophomore with less than 1 year of QB experience, studying for categories like FA and Geo seem to me simply rote memorization, whereas science is more conceptual. ...
