Re: Greatest Upsets in Quizbowl History

Hunter winning HSNCT this year is probably up there. Also, Liberty defeats Penn. I'm not really sure the #9 team winning a tournament is a great upset. Stevenson getting to the NSC final may count. Lakeside getting to the HSNCT final a decade ago would be up there. Possibly Coronado's HSNCT run thi...

Greatest Upsets in Quizbowl History

Hey everyone, I'm at a sports reporting gig right now & might want to pitch a story on quiz bowl. Not one of those "what is quizbowl" kind of pieces, but something a bit different. Ideally I'd like to tell the story of a great upset. So I welcome you to share here some stories from the unlikeliest v...

Georgetown Invitational (10/31/15- Washington, DC)

It is a pleasure to announce that Georgetown University will be hosting the inaugural Georgetown Invitational on October 31, 2015. The tournament will be hosted on NAQT’s IS-148 question set and computational math tossups will be removed. The top 15% of the field will qualify for NAQT’s High School ...

Regardless, we're willing to move to whatever set minimizes conflicts between sets & maximizes attendance for everyone. BASK -- apologies for the confusion. In that ...

Re: DC Metro 2015-16 Date Claim Thread

Are the UVA and Georgetown IS-set tournaments going to be on the same IS-set? Cavalier Classic this year is almost certainly going to be run on IS-150, which is the corresponding set that it's been run on for the past 3 years (IS-140, IS-130, IS-120). We would prefer it if Georgetown used the IS-14...

If there is an A-set, we can use it. It seems there might be, as Jon's schedule seems to show that three of the four A-sets are taken, leaving one that we could possibly use. We would prefer this, but if no sets are available, then we might be more willing to consider HSAPQ questions.
