South Carolina player Jake Spinella is likely transferring to UNC-Chapel Hill this fall. He'd probably like to play quizbowl there. He's a very good philosophy player and has decent knowledge in other areas.

That's awesome Nikhil. Alexa would make a great teammate so i hope she gives it a shot while she's out there. Hopefully we'll run into each other in Atlanta in a few weeks.

Sam, if you're heading to Orlando this summer, there are open practices at Valencia's West Campus on Wednesdays from 11-3 which will likely draw some of the UCF folks. We'd be happy to have you.

Barring shenanigans, I won't be down there until the start of August; on the other hand, that still potentially leaves a few weeks of academic-summer. I'll likely pester you (or the UCF folks, I suppose) for more info once I'm settled in.

I reckon I'll stick around at UAH for 1 more year. After that it's looking like graduate school(hopefully Auburn) unless I can get job shadowing experience, but then again who knows?

Seems like good things are going to happen at UNC next year. I kind of regret not even applying to be honest, but I wanted to leave my backyard. Guess I'll try to put Colorado on the quiz bowl map.

A question that is relevant to this thread: does NAQT still collect information for the Entering Freshman Contact List? I remember it used to reside at http://www.fraughtmachine.com/efcontact/, but it seems to have been taken down.

Usually in mid-August NAQT sends us an email with freshman who might be interested in playing quiz bowl.
