Sorry to let you down, yangsta, but our team is really cutting back for this year. I'm going to be in western mass visiting colleges this weekend and my fellows are heavily involved in other stuff. We're probably not even making it to a national tournament this year. This is the problem with a small...

Charlottesville will be representing Central Virginia in the "superbowl" on May 20. Any new info on who else will be in it?

In answer to Dr. Barnes' question, I wanted to be there, but our (Charlottesville's) #2 player was at a Harvard debate tournament and its coach was sunning on the beaches of FL. Faced with three weekends in February already booked, the team as a whole decided to forgo the tournament, perhaps a sign ...

No, please no. Why? To use a Virginia example, this would end up like the WVPT Pop Quiz! show, not exactly a paragon of academic competition, which asks all its questions by category. This either results in all but one player (the Jane Austen expert) being effectively out of the game for questions, ...

Dr. Barnes is right, we were contemplating a tournament last year. Unfortunately, our administration and our coach were not very into that idea, especially as the school was renovating. In terms of the schedule and handling both invitationals and VHSL, we seem to have it easier than most, as our dis...

Charlottesville is planning to send at least one team, I believe. I hope the tournament is over by 4, as To Kill A Mockingbird is showing at Newcomb Hall starting at 4. I love the Film Festival!

I'm from Charlottesville High School, in Virginia, and until No Child Left Behind leaves our school alone, I doubt we get free pizza. The international aspect of KMO is fun too, and not something I saw in Quizbowl until we played you guys at Nationals. Do you find that not being in America hurts you...

I agree completely. We have many students who are not into face to face competition, but really enjoy KMO. The team really comes together and we bring in shy genius classmates. We take over the AV room for the whole morning and eat tons, (how'd you manage the free pizza, by the way?). It is also how...

They did not change the crazy bracketing, which left C'ville, the second seed, playing MW (1st) in the semis, and arguably one of the top four teams in the quarterfinals. One of our players offered to show Julian a better bracket, but Julian didn't take him up on the offer, so its crazy brackets aga...

I know its an issue for at least two teams, Charlottesville and Gov School. Gov School is deep enough to still have four to take the test, but we've been forced to draw from our coach's English class. We told Julian, who runs it, but he seems to think his hands are tied by the Lottery. The test used...

Have you sent out e-mails? I'm not sure how many area teams frequent the site. If we have 6 free people that weekend we (Charlottesville) will come (barring objections of coaches).

Being one of those people from Charlottesville who expressed interest, I was wondering if it would be transitional. Assuming our mercurial powers-that-be grant approval, we would bring a fairly young, or at least less experienced team. Our captain and another A-Team member have theatrical obligation...

The details are yet to be worked out, but if anyone knows of possible conflicts or is interested, let us know. Tournament Directors: Lionel "Zhukov" Dripps and Alex Chase-Levens...
