I played on and captained my university's quiz bowl team back in the day and have also written questions for college and HS tournaments. It was a fun activity and while we were competitive (and certainly performed well at most tournaments), it seems like it was a lot different then and way more high pressure now.
I played in college (late 90s, early 2000s) and it was always this strange fairly insular world with factions, villains, heroes, etc.
Also, I was in Madison when they had a pie eating contest at halftime of one playoff round for points.
Here's a tip to prevent cheating. If you have information and you don't want people to look at it, don't make it available on-line. Particularly if you know some of your contestants are also writing the questions you use in the contests.
