Re: Harvard Fall Tournament IX Available For Mirrors

I'm unsure if this is the proper place to ask this, but did last year's HFT ever get posted?

Re: Specific Question Discussion

The lead-in to the Uffizi Gallery tossup was in my opinion a big hose. It led to both my team and Saratoga buzzer racing to an incorrect answer.

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

With nationals approaching soon, I’d like to somewhat revive this thread with some of my own opinions of teams in the region. This year's crop of teams has been one of the deepest in a number of years, and arguably one of the strongest, if not the strongest, region this year. With 11 top 100 teams i...

It was great to go against teams that I had never had the opportunity of playing before, and for the majority were nice people. However, about this controversy that has arisen the day after the tournament, I impl...
