Re: 2013 NASAT Set & Tournament Discussion

I didn't play this tournament but I'm a huge classical music fan - could I possibly see the aforementioned LA Philharmonic tossup?
Thanks

Re: Where Will You Be Going to College Next Year? 2012-13

I'll be going to the University of Notre Dame in the fall, and would like to play quiz bowl there.

North Babylon should be bringing two teams and an unspecific number of buzzer systems. We'll submit a formal registration shortly. Thanks!

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

That's a very good idea. Hopefully our school is able to make its way up to Westchester for some tournaments. We are usually able to get to NJ no problem, so Scarsdale or Irvington shouldn't be a big deal.

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

Since I'm a little late to the party, I'll be brief. First off, I'd like to generally agree with what people have been saying about our region in terms of what teams will be competitive. I think this has the potential to be a great year for quiz bowl in the NY area. Our team will certainly be coming...

Re: 2012 NAC

I remember very little, but here's what I've got. A bonus asking for states from the Onion's descriptions. A comp math t/u asking to find the area under a cubic polynomial between it's roots, where you had 15 seconds to find the roots and integrate. And this wonderful quote from the chief himself, "...

Re: 2012 NAC

Sorry for the lack of updates, I thought I had posted the playoff bracket with no results this morning, but it's quite possible it didn't go through. We've been in transit to the airport, but now that I'm here, I'll give my opinion of the tournament. Assuming the same questions are used at each site...

Re: 2012 NAC

- Don't know any better (outreach failure) - Misconceptions about Good Questions or Good Nationals (information failure) - Fossilized Admin/Coach (institutional failure) - Trophy Whores Who Know Very Well What They're Doing (morality failure) North Babylon fits the second of those.

Althoough I was unable to go, from what I heard it was a great tournament. North Babylon very much appreciates the efforts of the Hunter students and coaches who helped out. We hope to return next year!
