Re: 2016 HSNCT discussion

Sorry for the unclear question! What happened in my game was that I buzzed first line with "taking cover from a nuclear attack" and was negged. I protested, and it was resolved rather quickly at halftime in my favor, so I was wondering if there were other similar protests.

Re: 2016 HSNCT discussion

Thank you to NAQT for writing a great set; I really enjoyed the tournament this year! My teammates and I were wondering a few things about the questions, however. My teammate buzzed at "Galois groups" for the quintic polynomial question with just "polynomials", and was negged. He was wondering why h...

Re: Potential Northeast HS Mirror of ACF Fall

The thing is that Hunter's SCOP Novice tournament is that day, which I'd guess many of the New York schools will be going to. In terms of the NYC/LI area, there aren't many teams that would play ACF Fall even if there weren't a conflicting tournament. I doubt that not having a team or two max from ...

Re: Specific Question Discussion

Could I please see the tossup on 1666 in which the last clue was the year the Great Fire occurred? I ask because I remember hearing the question ask for the year Charles II was restored, which would have been 1660.

Re: Building a Quality Culture

Casey is right when he says that we can only have practice once a week because we're a club; our advisor is unwilling to stay more than once a week, and often she cancels practice due to conflicts or when we have a conflict with Regional Quizbowl (some garbage quizbowl thing that we do that our advi...

Re: Building a Quality Culture

This may sound a little contrary, but if the same activity or organization conflicts with quizbowl especially in an important or unavoidable way, year after year, and a new prospective member is in that club, make it clear to them that there's going to be a problem, and encourage them to reassess t...

Building a Quality Culture

Hi all, I'm just wondering how your schools build a quality quizbowl culture--meaning, how do you keep people motivated even when they're involved in other activities such as sports, theatre, music, etc.? How do you keep people motivated to keep coming to meetings throughout the year, even when your...

Re: Question-specific requests and discussion

Can I please see the music tossup on Finland? I believe there was a typo in the middle of the question, in which the thing it was asking for changed to "This city", rather than "This country".

Re: Question-specific Discussion

In my room in Round 7 (I think?), there was a bit of confusion over the Pope Toss-up, as the other team first line buzzed "patriarch". Could I possibly see the tossup, and would this be an acceptable answer?
