Aside from hosting tournaments, I set up candy sales last year. We pull in between 30-50 dollars per day, and we've actually forced the vending machine company to increase their prices to make up the lost revenue. Plus, I get to look like a drug dealer, carrying around the black suitcase-like buzzer...

We wanted to attend, but it's a long drive from Cleveland, through winter snows, we really can't afford plane tickets, and it's nowhere near the lakes.

The camp was an awesome experience. Mr. Rountree's lit classes and Chris Ray's non-western history were incredibly informative, and the questions DACQ provided were excellent. Aside from the learning, the great thing about the camps is that all these players from all over the country can meet, and g...

Well, they are losing Jacob. But the rest of the team seemed pretty good, works well, so they should be a definite contender.

No, its not that, I just don't have a membership to OAC's forum. Not a big deal. And I understand that people are happy that they won, and I apologize for being overboard on my response.

The word "synonym" in a biographical question is an immediate tip-off for "Quisling." Don't even wait for "...for traitor." Has anyone ever actually heard "Quisling" used to mean "traitor" outside of quiz bowl? Um, what about Benedict Arnold? You could get a biographical question about him, and his...
