Re: List of NSC (2018) Side Events

The Hyatt Regency Reston will be a World Quizzing Championship venue on Saturday at 8:00 PM US EST (Room TBD). This is not a buzzer quiz event. It is a written test of 240 questions split into 8 categories of 30 held over 2 hours. Think you can beat No. 1 quizzer in the world, Kevin Ashman ? Give it...

Re: Entirely Real Landscapes [Announcement]

Will this be played at HSNCT? My reticence to play the online mirror was predicated on the idea that it would be.
EDIT: It seems I won't be at HSNCT, carry on.

Re: Quizbowl men, get a haircut

Just squeezing in before thread lock here to say that while I initially disagreed with some of Dees' and Alston's assertions, the counterarguments leveled here are obnoxious enough for me to change sides. I can't pinpoint exactly where this thread turned into us vs. them but yes this has regrettably...

Re: Entirely Real Landscapes [Announcement]

Sounds excellent, and it's about time -- I was talking with some people about how epic a visual geography tournament would be. And now it's here.

Re: How far should we tolerate hate speech in quizbowl?

The assertion being made by the OP is so self-evidently incoherent that I'm beginning to wonder why I'm even replying. Oh, now I remember! It's because I was the one that initiated the conversation with Luke. We were the only two parties involved -- it was a private conversation over Facebook. We we...

Fun tournament -- hard to do much playing on a team of two, alas.

Re: Naveed Bork Memorial Tournament

If I make it to CO, which is still undecided, I would probably like to play this. The distribution is really too good to pass up... well, for my tastes.

Re: Geography Monstrosity VIII — May 27, Dallas

Joined the Hoppes squad. He had the other three slots blacked out but I couldn't in good conscience invade a high school team who doesn't even know me and play on their team. Jeff -- if you want to just play by yourself I'll start a fifth team. Also, where will the rounds themselves be held? I must...

Re: 2016 NHBB & USGO Varsity & JV Nationals Prizes

Greatness. Am I correct in assuming the majority of the International Geography Olympiad will be held at the China National Convention Center in conjunction with the Congress of the International Geographic Union? Or will it be at a different location?
