Missouri Boys State Quizbowl

Post by socalcaptain » Sun Jun 25, 2017 12:16 am

Apparently MBS has added a quizbowl competition to their offerings at some point recently. From what I hear, it's basically just a trivia night that they're calling "quizbowl."

Just thought I'd share this fun news.

As an attendant and avid quiz bowler, I was super hyped to see quiz bowl as one of the options. After hearing from one of my city mates that it was simply a trivia night with a false label, I was very disappointed. I ended up doing it the last night and I, as well as two of my city mates who are also quiz bowlers, felt it was a waste of time. Some of the answers weren't even right and we were constantly insulted by our moderator for being "nerds." I realize it would cost a little more to do a traditional QB format, but with the number of fellow quiz bowlers I saw there, I feel like it would be a worthy future investment.
