Re: Where are You Going Next Year (Collegiate 2018)

I'll be taking the advice of my high school's namesake and going West to Berkeley to pursue a physics PhD. Likely the end of my playing career, but I'd be happy to help staff Bay Area stuff if/when I have the time.

Teams Should Play Equal Number of Games Whenever Possible

Alright, I promised it, so I’ll awaken my long dormant forum account to discuss this topic. I’m also writing this on my phone, so typos may sneak in. First of all, I’d like to apologize to the Harvard team, my teammates, and anyone off put by my disruptiveness during the morning meeting. What I did ...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Penn Bowl 2016 (10/22/16)

I'm directing one of your mirrors. I'm one of your "partners" in this enterprise. I've made a lot of money for your team over the years, checks which were cashed and money spent by your team. I have a vested interest in my event having quality. I have a vested interest in my customers having a good...

Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Penn Bowl 2016 (10/22/16)

To piggy back off of Vasa but having run a 21 team Penn Bowl mirror with prelim brackets I can say with perfect confidence that if it takes you an hour to set up for playoffs, you're doing it wrong. But then again I've never had to write the set as it was being run before so there is that. Penn-anc...

Re: NHBB & USGO Nationals Set Thread

On the topic of sports, I'd like to thank whoever wrote the bee question on Gordie Howe. I think that there were even more tennis questions than hockey questions, so as a big hockey fan answering that question really made what was otherwise my worst round in the bee. I also think it's important to n...

Horace Greeley will only be able to bring 1 team. However, we can still bring a buzzer set and a moderator.

Re: Scarsdale Tournament -1/5/13- in Scarsdale, NY

I'll check with our coach tomorrow to see if she has contacted you yet, but Horace Greeley is interested in bringing 2 teams, a buzzer system and a moderator. I'll edit this post when I get confirmation from her.

Re: Newtown HS Quiz Bowl Invitational (12/8/12 Newtown, CT)

I'd like to express interest for Horace Greeley, if you can take us. We'd be bringing 1 or 2 teams, 1 buzzer set and a moderator, but I need to verify with my coach first. We may be able to bring 2 moderators.

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

I'm unsure of what our next opportunity to go to an NAQT or housewrite tournament will be, if someone could let me know, that'd be much appreciated. http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=13166 lists the upcoming tournaments very well - Harvard Fall and GSAC at St. Joe's (if you choose t...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

Sorry I haven't been posting for a bit. Got caught up in school work and the like. Seeing as our team should be able to attend our first local tournament of the year soon because the cross country season has pretty much wrapped, I decided I'd give an update to anyone who cares. I've been reading pyr...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

As a lot of people don't want to move away from Chip, depending on exactly how your practices go, reading 1 packet of Chip and 1 packet of something pyramidal can be a way to appease everyone while still moving forward. Even if you can't get a huge part of the team converted to pyramidal, if you ca...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

What I did to move Ardsley away from :chip: was to just keep pushing us to play pyramidal tournaments, use pyramidal questions in practice, and use pyramidal questions outside of practice (Quizbowl DB/ProtoBowl is a great time-waster during lunch periods). If you get teammates behind you on this, i...

Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

Considering the Giants are on and I have a Chemistry test tomorrow, I'm not entirely sure why I'm doing this now, but I'll go ahead with it anyway. So, I've lurked on these boards for about 3 weeks now after deciding to google Horace Greeley, my name and quiz bowl (I know, I know, call me what you w...
