Re: STACKS - Call for Editors (Nats Level, 2020-21)

I want to make it clear that I offered to write a QUESTION or two once I saw that there was actual potential and that the set had found proper editors and logistical staff. I would appreciate it if I wasn't listed as a permanent writer for the set as I never volunteered to a confirmed long-term writ...

Re: Over-Buzzing Problem

Eleanor Roosevelt High School is a regrowing team in our region and honestly has some of the toughest competition in the nation, literally no more than 20 miles from Richard Montgomery, Oakland Mills, Quince Orchard, and Walter Johnson - all teams in the top 200 You're lucky that these "top 200" te...

Top MS Players?

I feel that there are (A) Too many goddanged tournament advertisement in the MS discussion forums, which is great, but really annoys me, and (B) That the same top MS players (Golden,Phipps,etc.) are mentioned over and over again as the total and utter representation of the top tier MS players as a w...

Re: What to study for middle school quizbowl? Help

I believe that the best way to study is to read packets. I basically read all the MS sets on http://quizbowlpackets.com and then proceeded to begin reading the HS ones(I'm about 25% of the way through-trying to finish by May 2017). The HS sets are much better if you're trying to get the tossup quick...

Re: The State of Good Quizbowl, State-by-State

I'm just surprised Texas didn't get an A to an A-. They have programs almost unmatched anywhere else, and disgraces such as Chip Bowl are usually disregarded for NAQT IS sets. Heck, the middle school teams here could probably wreck the competition at a tournament outside of TX(exceptions being Illin...

Re: Going to HS tournaments without coaches?

As the founder/captain of my middle school quiz bowl team, the school administration did the same thing to us. Your best bet would be what you previously mentioned-carpooling. However, you are required to have an adult chaperone of some sort. Good luck! User was reminded to enable a signature. --Mgm...

Re: What defines a team captain?

As a varsity captain since 6th grade, I've been doing whatever I could for my team's success and was a true leader at meetings and showed the most initiative of my team. I had start the team up from nothing, and in the end, it was worth it to see the meetings filled with like minded individuals who ...
