Edit: Apparently McDonald's/Giordano's is farther from the Wyndham than the Crowne Plaza. My apologies.

I realize very few people involved in Quizbowl are also involved in Speech and Debate, and that there are a limited number of weekends in the year, but I have something that needs to be pointed out. (Well, I'm really just venting, but who's counting. )
NAQT is the same weekend as Catholic Nationals for forensics and, PACE is the same weekend that regular Nationals for forensics starts. This is very annoying.

That being said, woot Chicago!

Hmm... where are those forensics events taking place? Otherwise, we sympathize.

Are you sure about the McDonalds?

Isn't the Wyndham O'Hare on the other side of the subway stop? Denny's, on the other hand, would be much further if I remember correctly. But I may be mistaken.

I did Speech and Debate when I was in high school. I've noticed that most schools in this area seem to have one or the other. Like a lot of Pennsylvania school participate in the state league, but quizbowl seems to be only where they have local television contests.

EDIT: I had the wrong hotel.

Catholic Nationals are in Appleton, Wisconsin, and regular Nat's are in Las Vegas. NAQT conflicted with Catholic Nationals last year as well. Until two years ago it was all Speech and Debate all the time at my school. Once quizbowl was started it was still all about Speech and Debate. It's strange that for a nerdy school quizbowl would be considered a really strange thing to do. Does anyone else have this problem ?

Eh, forget about CFL and NFL. Dr. Patterson's TOC, heck even Barkeley Forum FTW.

TOC--the tournament of champions and champagne
Seriously. They normally have it on a boat, and there is purportedly a large quantity of alcohol imbibed.
Besides--NFL's are in Vegas, does one need another reason to go? Hundreds of teenagers in suits descending upon Vegas. It should be hilarious.
