Re: Georgia Coach?

I thought coaching quiz bowl was a volunteer type of thing. Do people really get paid to coach quiz bowl?

Re: I Buzzed First! - a new iPhone Quiz Bowl Buzzer app

So, Auburn decided to spend a few dollars for this app. We can not get it to work in any combination or iphones/androids/ipods. I am not sure if it is due to our school's wireless set up, but it is not working in the slightest.

I'd also like to note that, while forming an official organization as soon as possible is a good idea, it is not necessary to wait until the process is complete to attend tournaments.
