What's the field status right now for this tournament? I haven't gotten any confirmation that our registration was received.

There's a lot of non-answering of emails going on here. I suggest you keep trying. Unfortunately, I do not think this bodes well for the tournament.

Is the tournament still on at least? We're probably sending 2 teams if it is..

Sorry about the lack of notices, we are planning to send an email out Thursday night. We have already received the set, and we have staff and rooms reserved. Field update posted in the main post.

YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM US BY NOW IF YOU EMAILED US TO REGISTER. If not, please email [email protected] IMMEDIATELY.

EDIT: Wrong date. Still holding out for maybe a few more teams.

We are definitely sending 2 teams. Is that the final field (which means 9 games in all)?

No it appears Enloe is bringing another team for a total of 3, I'm sorry about not updating this earlier, but they just confirmed it with me earlier tonight. Every team will be guaranteed 10 games (11 rounds), and we seek to have the tournament finished by 5:30pm (with 1 hour for lunch)

Thanks for hosting the tournament. It was fun and somewhat tiring as the day went on.

Will there be stats? I'm interested to see my drop in general performance after lunch compared with before. I don't know why, but it seemed like the packets were harder after round 5, and then in our last game in round 11, there was a buzzer racing fiasco (all of which we lost) for at least half the questions and the difficulty seemed closer to what it was in the morning. Definitely could've used a nap before the afternoon matches though. :lol:

I like to congratulate Enloe A on going undefeated to win the tournament.

Also, thank you to all of those who stuck around for 11 rounds of quizbowl. I apologize for running so many rounds, but I felt that round robin would be the most equitable way to structure a tournament with 11 teams that also guaranteed at least 9 rounds.

We had trouble locating the score sheet for one game in particular, which is obstructing our efforts to compile the full statistics (the game in question did not affect final team standings); however, once that is sorted out, the stats will be posted.
