Re: Greg Bossick's Resignation from NHBB & Some Issues it Raises

I'm only jumping in to say I took him to mean threw personal information out, not threw Greg out.

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

Scoff if you will, but I'd take the volunteer with a positive attitude and a heart in the right place over one with a chip on his shoulder. It's no contest. Edit: I'd suggest he be the one to think about not coming back, but I know my place.

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

I read last year but not this year. I found it stressful, probably because, I readily admit, I didn't have experience and was in over my head. I'd love to attend quiz bowl but I don't think there's much near me (central Nebraska).

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

The focus on the Bowl/Bee isn't compromised. Also, what volunteers do you keep referring to whose presence was "only made possible" by the side events? The organizers make the Bowl an "unofficial Jeopardy! reunion." Frankly I'm stunned that you don't know about this, as I think that's the only reas...

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

I guess I would suggest an alternative source for volunteers if you really don't want the Jeopardy! events. NOW we're on to something... ...But still no suggestion from you. Mine: Maybe a staffperson or volunteer could be devoted exclusively to planning the Jeopardy! events so everyone's satisfied....

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

Yes it is. That's planning for meaningless side events that could have been used for planning the Bee and/or Bowl, which, as we have now discussed, were not planned well. The pub quiz hosts boasted that the clues were compiled two hours before the quiz was to start. Also, the Jeopardy! Bee was cut ...

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

In addition to this, I also am curious if the side events will still be kept for next year or if that's going to get shelved so the focus is towards the Bowl and Bee competitions and improving the experience, you know, what people came to D.C. for. The side events really seem unnecessary in the gra...

Jonpin: I left at 20 til 5, and a staffer told me at that time there were four rounds left. ? Maybe they took a lot out.

Re: 2012 Natl. History Bee & Bowl Nationals - 4/28-29 in DC

Curious - What time did the Bee end on Sunday? Also, does anyone know if any Bowl or Bee players are appearing on the Jeopardy! Teen Tournament this week? Thanks.

Re: NHBB Discussion

The 7:15 meeting was supposed to be for site leaders, who were instructed to pass along the information, along with the printed moderator guidelines. It's my understanding that not all of the site leaders made it to the meeting, or came late after the announces about changes. As far as the scrimmag...
