Re: VCU Open 2014: August 2

So my ride to this on Saturday had to bail. If anyone in the Richmond area could spare me a ride (I'm about two hours away from VCU), private message me. I can fully compensate for gas/time/etc. It would be helpful to know from what direction you need a ride (e.g. north). I'm coming from southern V...

I may be misremembering and/or was just hearing things from the back of the room, but was Menderes clued in both the Turkey tossup and a Turkey bonus part?

Could I see the Tokugawa tossup? I caught myself sleeping and only heard "Ezo" and "Hakodate"; then I consequently negged with Meiji.

The Leniency of Pronunciation

This weekend, I was moderating a room at a local tourney. During one of the rounds, a tossup answer line was "Kiribati." A competitor buzzed in and promptly answered ki-ri-ba-ti. Although that's not how it's pronounced, I accepted it as a correct response, seeing as it is spelled in that manner. Lat...

One Juggernaut or Four Well-Rounded Individuals?

In my few years of quiz-bowl experience, I have come across a plethora of great teams. The most astonishing thing is that the top-tier teams—the ones I have competed against—all seem to have, more or less, one individual that provides the infrastructure of the squad—you know, the one averaging 140 o...
