In need of good moderators

Post by Nick » Thu May 14, 2015 1:59 am

The National History Bee and Bowl's Middle School Division is still looking for the last handful of moderators for our 2015 National Finals event in Louisville, Kentucky next weekend (Memorial Day weekend). If you have experience moderating, and would be able/interested in volunteering your time on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, please contact me at nick (at) historybee.com for more details. We appreciate your consideration.

I would like to go on record as saying that contacting the local college teams only 8 days before the event was probably not a good decision. I think there would be more interest in helping out had we known something more concrete before the week prior to the event,

I want to back Nick up on this. It's pretty assumptive and insulting to request any local staffers the week of the tournament.

I don't know anything about what kind of preparation went in to the event, but what else are you going to do if you're down staffers the week of a major tournament for whatever reason? People throw out last minute calls for staffers all the time.
