Daviess County is a really good team too. I think they should be in the running.

I voted for Dorman, but I'm a little stunned that not one single person has voted for St. Johns. What happened to the Texas people in here? About a month ago they were saying how good a team St. Johns was.

you're very welcome. have a great day :)

by the way, i perfer bonuses out of the two available choices. although, since i'm not entirely sure which is correct, whenever i have to use the word in question i simply replace it with "bonus questions."

I think that TJ has qualified probably between eight and ten teams for PACE.
That's awesome.

In that case, we've qualified 3 teams for PACE i think; 3 teams for NAC; 2 teams for ASCN; and we've yet to play an NAQT tournament. It's too bad we only have 3 players on our team. Anyone want to join the Martin County Academic League? :)

Ted-- got room for 4 people to stay with you? :)

We're hoping to qualify at Vanguard on the 28th. If we do, and we can find about $1000, we'll drive there.

The same goes for PACE in Maryland... if we can find $1000 for that, we'll go. Anyone feel like donating money to send 3 underpriviledged kids to nationals?

My kids took 3rd playing against college teams, mostly community college teams and a few college B...

Raj, thanks for correcting my mistakes. And that thing about Tuesday practice is very good to know :) I like to play and I like to help out, but I'm not the best. I think the majority (Jeremy just had to go to Stanford) of Martin County's team is planning on going to UF next year and are planning on...

The transition from HS to college is a hard one, especially for the quizbowler. I know when i made the switch, i had played in high school for two and a half years and had gone from getting about 1 question a round to about 5 questions per round and being the top scorer on my team in high school.

I emailed NAQT about it, they said an "unofficial" team is fine as long as they are all from the same school.

Florida

I guess the weekend of the 18th will settle who's got the top teams in Florida. Martin, Woodham, Niceville, Leon, Vanguard, Suwannee, Eastside, and Rickards will be in attendance, among others.

And yes, of course I'm pushing my own team (coach and former player). Shouldnt every coach/alumni?
