Post All-star team practice
This thread is to be used to announce all-star team practices on the chatroom and in-person, to discuss same, and to ask questions about time, location, etc.

I am tentatively announcing an all-star practice in the chatroom at 9 Monday evening. I think we have two players confirmed, and I'm waiting to hear from the other two. We'll definitely practice on the HSAPQ all-star sample packet that I received and we'll probably go through rounds of similar difficulty afterwards. I will certainly be there, and I'm really excited about it. :D

We respectfully ask that other players not try to answer questions in this practice session, but anyone is certainly welcome to come and watch. :) We really want to see how these players perform together as a group, hence the reason for this request.

If anybody has any questions, post them here or send me a PM. :)

Monday night is not good for me. I have my IB English Test the next morning. I can do Sunday or Thursday, Friday, Saturday this week. But not Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

err...Monday's pretty much the only day I'm available.
Tuesday night = long English presentations for multiple hours
Wednesday night = math final for my night class at Wash U
Thursday night = study for APUSH test
Friday night = mshsaa state the next day
Saturday night = i think i'm free
Sunday night = study for AP Bio exam
yeah....

[EDIT: I originally thought I was booked friday/saturday night because of a math competition, but I switched my weekends. forgot that this coming weekend is mshsaa state and next weekend is the math competition.]

My understanding is that Nick can make it; if so, we'll proceed with the two of you.

I may actually have the chance to drop in. All I have to do today is study for my exam tomorrow, and I should be done studying by 9. :D

I've contacted all of you guys about this already, but can you guys make an in-person practice in Columbia after the State tournament on Saturday? My reckoning is that it would be after 3:30-ish. Let me know if you all can go, and we'll take it from there.

Looks like we won't be able to get an in-person practice organized tomorrow. We'll just have to keep trying. :) When is everybody free next week for a chatroom practice?

Now that I'm almost back to normal. . . .

What days and times this week can everyone possibly practice in the chatroom? I'll be PMing all of you to try to finally arrange an in-person practice. :)

I'm available pretty much any night. I'm reviewing for my APUSH exam tomorrow, but I'll need a bit of a study break later. And what better thing to do on a study break than quiz bowl? XD

Sorry I couldn't make it! my internet failed at around 7ish (it does that a lot). Got it back up by 10ish (it fails, but generally not for that freaking long) but by then I had definitely forgotten all about practice. So sorry! :(
