San Jose & San Francisco (Day 12): Ethics Bowl

7 December. Index.

This was the morning of the Ethics Bowl regionals. There were about fifteen teams competing (I don’t remember the exact number), with the top four moving on to the nationals. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t break the top four, but it was a narrow thing. We played three rounds, winning our first two, and narrowly losing our third by 4 points out of a possible 150.

The competition venue was the National Hispanic University, which is a new institution, and seemed only to have the one block. The building did have a pretty stunning view from its glass-walled east face, which you can see in the shot below of our solemn-looking midday team conference.

While we were disappointed at the loss, it did mean we had much of the day left to ourselves. We ended up taking the CalTrain up to San Francisco for the evening. At the train station we encountered a small troupe of Santas, who looked to be on their way out for a day of volunteering.

We took the train in to downtown San Francisco and made our way by bus up to Fisherman’s Wharf for dinner. We roamed around the wharf for a bit after.

All in all, it was a good time together.
