This tournament was just abut perfect.

Kudos, again, to VCU for running the most efficient tournaments out there. We played SEVEN games before lunch, and that included a short delay while we waited for a team to not bother showing up. And round 9 was done before 2:45. The finals the awards were finished by 3:30. Pretty awesome. It was a pleasure to help out, as well, you know i always enjoy doing what i can to help.

Maggie Walker is pretty awesome of course, but TJ is not far behind and like Dr. Barnes said, could have beaten them today. Great job to both of those teams.

Also thanks and congrats to Whitman for another good game. We'll always have close ones.

Lastly, these questions were downright great. Maybe the best we've seen this year (comparable, perhaps better, than GDS' set). The only thing it was missing was a power mark in tossups! Oh well. We really enjoyed these questions a lot; they had interesting leadins, accessible answers, tough "hard" bonuses, and were generally quite well-written. I did notice one factual error (might have been a typo overlooked?) that almost changed the result of a game between us and TJ. I'll let Lily know about that one.

That's insane.

Looking at the stats for this, and comparing them to Prison Bowl NYC, it did get me to thinking. Has a team ever had a perfect game on bonuses, hearing 10 or more? LASA had games of 37-for-39 and 38-for-39; Maggie Walker here went 49-for-51 in one game. Is such a feat even rarer than 20-for-20?
Also, GDS did this at Maryland Fall in a game against St. Joseph A, having gotten 11 tossups.

Nope, I definitely fixed both of those. Mr. Chrzanowski, what was the error?
