Re: Tennessee 2016-2017

Stem Academy: I have not faced L&N in quite some time so I will gather the information I have from their NAQT page (https://www.naqt.com/stats/school-players.jsp?org_id=74530) on their presumed players. I would also like to thank L&N for holding an east TN tournament to help out our local scene (ht...

Re: L&N Train Bowl—Knoxville TN (10/08/2016)

How will we be playing pool play with 14 teams? The format has changed a bit to reflect the lower count of teams(which is actually at 13 now, I'll update the field). We now plan on having 8 round robin games, followed by a seeded playoff, single elimination bracket. This works out to a minimum of 9...

Re: L&N Train Bowl—Knoxville TN (10/08/2016)

Do the Knox County schools even play quiz bowl anymore?? L&N is in downtown Knoxville, and yet Farragut and Cedar Springs (home school team) are the only schools representing Knox County. It definitely seems that way. I haven't had much success contacting nearby schools through emails or second han...

Re: Tennessee 2016-2017

I don't presume to have enough knowledge of the East TN circuit to start the a very in depth conversation. However, East TN has been largely devoid of many teams and tournaments. In the efforts to stimulate some activity in the region, my school is hosting a tournament (The L&N Train Bowl). This is ...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

You might want to start rotating prospective readers (could be teachers, could be other students, definitely should be all members of your team) through your practices right now and again at the start of the year. You don't need all of them at once, just a few to stop by every practice. Thanks, I'l...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I hope things are coming together with contacting schools in the area. As I mentioned earlier, my school is considering holding a tournament next year; however, my one major concern regarding this is getting enough competent moderators/readers. It will almost certainly be a novice tournament in the ...

Re: Tennessee 2015-2016

I'm super excited to hear some Quizbowl activity in East TN. My school (STEM Academy) started up a few years ago and we have a very small club that can field two teams at a tournament on a good day. That said, I think all the schools in the region would benefit from some local tournaments. Without s...
