The revised example of the question on Grover Cleveland is a good example; maybe it won't distinguish between Dorman and State College as well as a longer question would,
Considering that your national tournament appears to be set for the same weekend as ACF Nationals, it seems unlikely that your questions will be distinguishing between State College and anyone.

You assume that ACF Nationals will not be run on the National History Bowl.

And you forget that 2/3 of the editing team for ACF Nationals is scientists. If anything, we'll be running Nats on Science Bowl.

My senior year of high school everyone quit the Science Bowl team over some kind of horrible bake sale dispute fallout. After the actual science players on the quizbowl team said no, they ended up sending a team of myself, Leonard "Jones Potential" Chang, and the remnants of the victorious pro-peanut butter bake sale faction. I think we ended up losing to Seneca Valley by 300 points. By far the highlight of the tournament was getting a BEC "tossup" on the same clue that got me the buzz while playing with Jerry at the 2008 IO. Science Booooooowwwllll!
