Re: What Happens to DC-Area Quizbowl Next Year?

I would just say watch out for Oakland Mills' NAQT abilities. They may have underperformed at a couple of tournaments, but the twins have (I think) the best geography, current events, and trash knowledge in the region, giving them a significant "naqt boost" which may have gone unnoticed in other for...

Re: It's Ac Tapings for Next Season

Yes, but on certain days, particularly the DC semifinals, many teams are affected. Just as an example, this year TJ, RM, and Blair were all in the semi finals and if there had been a tournament none of those three teams would have been able to go. Look, I never said that we need to "schedule around ...

Re: It's Ac Tapings for Next Season

It seems kind of silly to schedule tournaments around an activity that only involves three or four teams that play actual Quizbowl. What do you mean? I am pretty sure every quizbowl team in the D.C.- Baltimore area that plays good quizbowl tournaments also play in either the DC or Baltimore show. T...

Yes, but like I said earlier there are currently no teams signed up for a tournament less than a month away. It is very possible that more than two of those 5 teams would come to this tournament if it was on another day. At this point I think the more good teams that can come to this the better. Eit...

Re: Maggie Walker Spring Tournament [Richmond, VA] (5/18/2013)

Would you guys consider moving the date at all? I think some DC area teams are hesitant of signing up for this because of the possibility of being in the It's Academic final on that day. I know that it may be too late to change the date and that your school may not allow this to run on another day, ...

Sorry in advance for being ignorant (I've never played a nationals side-event before), but will there be some sort of "official" sign up sheet prior to HSNCT, or can we simply say what our teams will be that Saturday? Also, has a decision been made about whether this will be doubles/triples/quads?
