Hi everyone,

First of all, we had the biggest QB meeting (ever?) today!!!!

 

Also:

 

1. Don’t forget to study mathematicians for next week (and more candy :)http://www.naqt.com/YouGottaKnow/mathematicians.html

2. Look at the following tournaments and let both me and Mr. Stoll know if you can make it. Check your email, as we may be going to other upcoming tournaments at Stanford, Berkeley, and Bellarmine!

Friday, January 28th through Monday, January 31st 43rd Millard Fillmore Hunt. Held at Woodside High School. Must have AT LEAST 5-10 students. (Non-QB members are OK as well) More information here: http://voice.paly.net/node/16878
February 12th, 2011 National History Bowl Tournament at UC Berkeley. More like Quiz Kids format than Quiz Bowl, but more information here: http://www.historybowl.com/
TBD – Some Saturday in the spring Bay Area Puzzle Hunt, Stanford University. Also aiming at around a 10-member team; should be similar to the Millard Fillmore hunt. Examples online here: http://groups.google.com/group/bay-area-high-school-puzzle-hunt-2010 and more information attached (FAQ.doc)

Thanks!!

Addendum:

Our next meeting is on 1/19 in Mr. Stoll’s room. There will be a 20-question quiz on both mathematicians and famous sculptors (http://www.naqt.com/YouGottaKnow/sculptors.html), so study those!
