Pre-Nats Poll, May 2018... Congrats, Canyon Crest!

Post by deserto » Tue May 15, 2018 1:35 pm

Good afternoon,

I am preparing to email out the ballot for the high school quizbowl pre-nationals poll. I have a large and growing contact list, but if you do not hear from me and would like to participate please get in touch; I am accessible via PM or email (g.brisontrezise [at] gmail). I've set a deadline of 1 a.m. EDT Tuesday, May 22, and plan to post the results by Wednesday evening. I will again deduct each team's highest and lowest rankings from its vote total, and, depending on the number of participating voters, may drop the two highest and lowest rankings.

Cheers,

Gabe
