I doubt you take AP US History as a freshman, but that's a good source for one (the back of my book lists their entire cabinets and such).

Also, is Auburn attending Masonic? I saw you were signed up for Culver's tournament, which is the same day as Masonic State.

I do find it kind of interesting that we've never played Loyola in Illinois format. There was a near miss at Richards, where if we had won at the semis we would have played them for the championship. I'm not sure if there were any other "close calls".

The only nit picky thing I remember about it was there were two tossups on Canterbury Tales. I thought there only should have been one, at most, since it was the same tournament. But again, that's probably really nit picky.

One thing I don't understand is when people count guesses after the question as "misses". It's considered good strategy for someone to throw out a guess way after the question is over, because there is no penalty (at least at everything played in Illinois excluding Ultima).

Maybe it doesn't affect me as much, since last year we hosted our regional and the drive to the Sectional wasn't too bad, but so far it seems as if the sub-sectional has made things worse.
