Re: 2016 HSNCT discussion

I haven't seen the questions in mind, but I'm a little confused how you could have knowledge about say the JFK assassination or Augusta National but not figure out what objects are being described (assuming I guess the tossups said "object"). The neg on Augusta National green jackets was after a de...

In the room that I was reading in, all three of these tossups resulted in negs or required several prompts ...

Re: Young adult literature

I. slightly deeper questions on the Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Twilight, etc. (and by "slightly deeper" that still doesn't mean the answerline can be much deeper than "Katniss Everdeen," even if the question can be much harder than that answerline suggests). As much as I dislike YA lit for taking ...

I'm not sure if you want it, but we have stats for both of our teams during the playoffs. Unfortunately, we did not keep individual stats for the teams we played.

Re: How to Handle Freebies

I feel that a good way to handle this is to let the person on your team who specializes in the category of the question buzz in at the end. If its something that multiple people know, maybe whoever raises their buzzer first or who the captain points to before the end of the question.
