Re: General discussion

A couple general thoughts: 2) There was a bunch of weird clue ordering in tossups, where I felt like a giveaway-level clue was in the 2nd to 4th line, and then promptly followed by a clue significantly harder.

Re: Why do you love quizbowl?

You're rewarded with points for good buzzes and thirties for (hopefully) deep knowledge of a topic and, if that wasn't enough, everyone else around you is subject to the same measurements so ...

Why do you love quizbowl?

I was recently asked this question by someone unfamiliar with the game because they had trouble understanding "why people dedicate so much time and effort to studying and learning outside of the classroom." So now I'm interested to hear what other people have to say: why do you love quizbowl?

After an undefeated NAC season for Harrison's Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Freshman teams, Harrison continued on to defeat St. Joe's JV A team by 40 points, claiming the title of NAQT state champions vs. an opponent obviously more well-versed in the questions. St. Joe's suffered this loss after def...

Re: Illinois '13-'14

After a great experience this year, St. Joseph High School will certainly be attending as many Illinois tournaments in the 2013-14 season as possible. Also, some of us will be in the Chicago area this summer and were wondering if there will there be any open practices we could possibly attend.
