As some of you may have already heard, Aegis will not be continuing operations as of the end of the 2008-09 season. Our base of writers has grown substantially smaller due to the difficulty of writing Illinois format bonuses, which leaves the directors with a lot of work to do. None of us can handle the amount of work this requires any longer, and so we are ceasing operations. Check out our blog in the near future if you are interested in our closing thoughts about Aegis and writing for Illinois Scholastic Bowl.
