There are :chip: tournaments in Maryland?

I'm pretty sure I included them in the mailed announcement for the Maryland NAQT state championship. Interesting to see a Maryland team in the NAC.

DC/Metro Area 2007-08

I probably shouldn't be the one to start this thread, given what I did to the last DC comparisons thread, but absence of a DC thread was noticeable.

Discuss away!

It was an issue with a music theory tossup. I don't know anything about music theory, but if I remember correctly, it involved equivalent terms for a "perfect fourth." Someone on Dorman gave an answer that was ruled incorrect and he protested, stating that his answer (can't remember what it was) was...

I was wondering the same thing. I think that it might be because some games had less than 20 tossups.

As Dan said, the DC Panasonic team is: Ted Gioia (Gonzaga) Jonathan Ogden (Georgetown Day) Dan Puma (Gonzaga) Ian Eppler (Me, and I'm from Georgetown Day) Iheoma Umez-Eronini (Benjamin Banneker) Alan Cole (St. Albans) The latter two have little quizbowl experience beyond It's Academic, but Alan has ...

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Eleanor Roosevelt is a pretty good team. We were barely able to beat them at UMD. I could see them making the playoffs.

For some reason, GDS owns a set of Panasonic-style buzzers. They're made by Quiz-A-Matic.

Also, I agree with everything that Chris Ray and Charlie have said.

Is there any reason why NAQT, PACE, et al. couldn't submit a question-writing bid to the underpaid intern in the Panasonic PR department who works on this tournament? There's no reason why Panasonic can't be played with a standard quizbowl format, and a better format would probably result in more te...

If I remember my religious education correctly, it only takes 3 miracles for sainthood. I'm just saying. If he were martyred at NAQT Nationals, only one miracle would be needed. He would need two miracles otherwise. If he "martyred" himself in the :chip: war room, could he be canonized immediately?

I don't think that It's Academic questions are particularly pyramidal. While questions usually begin with hard clues and narrow down to easy clues, making them pyramidal, they are really pyramidal only in theory. They tend to only contain two or three clues, and the early ones are usually ridiculous...

I guess I need to introduce myself, so I'm Ian from GDS A (also known as Brick Tamlin in this tournament) Thanks to Dr. Chuck for an excellent tournament. It was a chance (for the nationals bracket) to play an entire day against the great Mid-Atlantic teams, whereas at most tournaments that I have b...

I may be stretching the regional definition a bit here, but here's who I'd say the top 5 are right now: 1. Richard Montgomery--two championships in two tournaments in October is definitely the way to make a statement 2. State College--just slightly behind RM; would be nice to see more results from ...

gds game

Though I think we played pretty well, I wouldn't say we were hardly challenged - our quarterfinal game against GDS was extremely close. We were down 80-20 after the lightning round but managed to pull it out. GDS actually led the game until the 35th question and only lost by 20. At one point, they ...
