Re: Novice Tournaments in New England

I personally think novice events in this area would be a GREAT thing, since many schools could benefit from the additional experience and questioning. You only get better by playing more. More experience would help younger, smaller teams to become confident and seasoned. I definitely second that op...

Re: New England (CT, MA, VT, NH) Date Claims, 2013-14

AMSA is hosting a tournament on November 23 in Marlborough, MA. I'll post registration information in a day or two, but I wanted to get the date out there. We'll be using IS-133A packet set. The program MIT SPLASH is also running the weekend of November 23rd. It's a very popular program for more ac...

Re: Starting a brand new QB team

Hey, I started a QB team at my high school back in December. I actually started it as a student, so not only am I the club president but I'm also the de facto coach and run all operations. Of course, the very first thing you do is to make an official club for the school. At my school there's a speci...

Re: Various Thoughts on New England QB

I do agree that QB in New England is overall rather weak, but among us Vermont does have the most structured system and is the most involved state. I myself am from a bordering suburb of Boston, and I am surprised to see that there's hardly any awareness about quizbowl in the area. There are events ...

Re: Transportation For New HS Team

I was thinking about securing a school bus to use so that we can go to tournaments a bit farther away. There are parents who'd be willing to drive long distances, but I think they may become a bit reluctant after learning that they have to drive a bus rather than a car. Also, we don't need a huge sc...

Transportation For New HS Team

Hello everyone, I recently started a quizbowl organization at my high school, and I held an informational meeting first so that everyone would be well aware of what exactly quizbowl is. After the meeting, everyone who attended signed up for quizbowl and were very enthusiastic. My faculty advisor and...

New Quizbowl Team Informational Meeting Content

Hello everyone! I recently started a quizbowl team at my high school to cultivate my love of it. I have known about quizbowl for a long time, but my high school hasn't really an idea about what it is exactly, so I finally started up a team. Anyway, I have realized that people may want to know what e...
