Weekend of Quizbowl
Weekend of Quizbowl Goodness: BYO Dagger was an event that occurred from March 14 to 16, 2008. Organized by Chris Ray in the name of DACQ, it ran at George Mason with the aim of attracting a nationals-caliber field to play multiple high quality events. The schedule called for running Wallace Stevens Memorial Singles by Ted Gioia on Friday night, a high school mirror of Matt Cvijanovich Memorial Novice Tournament on Saturday, a cancelled Saturday night doubles tournament, and a high school mirror of 2008 Division II SCT on Sunday. The tournament was plagued with logistical issues, including rebracketing delays and teams leaving to catch flights  .
Weekend of Quizbowl 2 was taken over by Matt Weiner and Dave Bykowski of PACE; it ran at GMU on March 14th and 15th, 2009, and was preceded by lit singles written by Ike Jose. Despite aiming for a 48-team field on both days, only 20 teams attended the Saturday event, an old NSC-format set written by members of PACE, and 14 attended the Sunday event (a high school mirror of MUT II). Some number of high schoolers also signed up to play a Saturday night singles event made from tossups from HSAPQ's Four-Quarter set.
