History

Princeton has a lengthy though obscure history of participation in College Bowl. It is known that the club lost to Agnes Scott College in a 1966 episode of the TV program, and that it placed at 4th at CBI nationals in 1984, earning a plate that now rusts away in the club's trophy hoard.

With the arrival of Jeff Stewart from BYU around 1994, Princeton's previously CBI-only program began attending and hosting ACF events. Princeton deaffiliated from CBI after the 1996-1997 school year.

Princeton and Rutgers' decision to cancel going to ACF Regionals 2007 at Maryland controversially turned that tournament into a farce, consiting only of VCU, two house teams, and a high school team. As a result, a long argument between Matt Weiner, members of the Princeton team and others flared up on the message boards in this thread.

Tournaments

For the past three years, Princeton has hosted PARFAIT, which was originally a packet submission tournament and has subsequently become a house written tournament. Previous Princeton college tournaments included Buzzerfest (1997-2004) and the Orville Redenbacher Invitational (c. 1996-1997).

The club also hosts a relatively popular NAQT high school tournament in the winter.

Leaving Tournaments Early

Though they have not achieved the 100% ratio of Duke, Princeton quite frequently leaves tournaments early, screwing over their scheduled opponents.
