Have you determined what question set you are using?

We've just made an inquiry about mirroring Harvard fall, but they haven't had time to get back to us. I don't anticipate any overlap between us and the NAQT set you guys are using in November. Besides, it's probably a bit late in the game to ask for a clean set from them. When we know something for sure, we'll let you know.

Oh, it wasn't a concern about a UK Fall conflict (and we're using the Brookwood set, too). It's just usually helpful if you post the set in your announcement if you've decided it.

Actually, for now at least, you will have to downgrade us to "interested." We will discuss at the next practice and have a more definite answer in the near future.

Dren,

It's not looking good for us to get out of NEGA this weekend. I'm afraid we'll have to cancel. :/

Thanks to everyone who braved the elements to attend the inaugural Bobcat Challenge at Oliver Springs High School!! Congrats to Farragut A who defeated Oak Ridge A in a incredibly close final 390-345. Also, thanks to the fine folks at Maggie Walker for an excellent set of questions. We hope to be able to work with them in the future. We'll be posting stats in the near future. The TD, yours truly, needs a couple of days rest after a really long week. Also, please be on the lookout for an announcement regarding a potential (much larger) tournament to be held in the Fall. Once again, thanks to everyone who made this such a success and we'll see you next year!!

There seem to be some errors with ppbs. Grace Christian got 60 ppb in one game.

Bouncebacks apparently weren't separated from PPB.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to figure out how to track bounce backs with SQBS, so we tracked them manually on another sheet. I'd have to go back and look at the scoresheets, but it's very possible that Grace did get 60 points off of bounce backs in one round.

When you create the tournament file, the initial "Tournament Options" screen lists various choices for "Bonus Conversion Tracking." Select "Manual with Bouncebacks."

With the scorekeepers and some readers very VERY new to all this (one scoresheet somehow gave a player a 30 point TU with no bonus- they combined everything. She was conscripted at the last second and it took us forever to decode it), we decided to do it all manual this go around. We knew about that option but they wanted everything as easy as possible for the first time.

With all due respect to Farragut, it has to be with bouncebacks.

Without. The stats online are with. Again, they now know how to do it on SQBS and OSHS will have a new scoresheet to better facilitate this in the future.

I'm assuming that the combined w/ bouncebacks stats do the same thing that all other stats of that nature do, which is just lump in the total points scored and not adjust the number of bonuses heard. If this is the case, then there's no way that the PPBs should increase in any circumstances.

From the stats I kept our A team PPB without BB was 23.73. Not bad, considering that its more than what Oak Ridge got with bouncebacks and we were shorthanded. Not sure what B team got but they were shorthanded pretty badly compared to at Trevor's Trivia.
