Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2012-2013

Scarsdale, should we be able to secure a packet set, would be hosting an NAQT tournament on January 12. I'm not sure when things qualify to be put on the schedule, but that's at least our plan for now.

EDIT: We are also bidding to host Metro NYC- NAQT States April 13. Same constraints as above apply.

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

PACE has just sent me confirmation that our tournament was Platinum Certified. As such, GNS, Ardsley, and Irvington's A teams are all now qualified for NSC as well. Congrats to all!

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

Ok, results have been updated and can be seen at the link below. We also sent the data to NAQT, so that should come up on their website soon. Ryan, you actually underestimated as Ardsley A got 615 in that round.

The Scarsdale team would like to thank everyone for coming to the tournament today. It was our first tournament and an exciting endeavor for our team. We would appreciate any feedback you may have so that we know what we may need to work on should we want to host a tournament next year. On the topic...

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

OK. SORRY WE WERE HAVING MISCOMMUNICATION. GNS IS SENDING 3 TEAMS AND THEREFORE SCARSDALE WILL NOT BE FIELDING A TEAM.

Never mind, again. GNS has pulled their C team so there will be a Scarsdale house team participating.

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

So I was right about needing to post again. GNS is now bringing 3 teams, so NOW we should have the final field above. Once again, keep checking in for updates.

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

Ok, so NOW we have the final field above as Hunter C is not able to make it. Scarsdale will be fielding a team to fill out the round robins. Keep checking back as I will inevitably think of something else that I am forgetting to tell everyone sometime between now and the tournament.

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

Sorry I've kept on posting here, but two things: 1. The field at the bottom of the tournament invite above is likely to be the final field for the tournament, save for any sudden changes. 2. Included in that field is a composite B team that we are running to have 12 teams and therefore two brackets ...

As a note relating to Passover: we will be serving matzah along with bagels at breakfast to account for dietary restrictions. Unfortunately we are not finding it possible to provide Passover-kosher food for lunch as well and so all should plan according. We apologize for any inconvenience this may b...

Re: Metro-NYC NAQT State Championship (4/14/12)

If any teams that are interested and have not yet gotten back to me could start getting more concrete numbers to me sometime within the next week, that would be great. We want to start getting a general sense of what we need to prepare for. Numbers don't have to be final, but can be a prediction of ...

Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2011-2012

Scarsdale is considering bidding for the NYC-area NAQT state championships. If we were to host the tournament on April 14th (the same day as the New Jersey NAQT state championships) would teams be willing to come? Tournament is still in a planning stage and is not yet assuredly going to happen (it i...

Scarsdale is not going to be able to bring a buzzer system since we were supposed to pick them up today at a tournament that was snowed out. Sorry for the inconvenience.

NYC Area Tournaments?

We've recently started a team at my school in Westchester and I am trying to figure out what tournaments we can go to in the Westchester/NYC area that we could try out. I have read a lot of stuff about "good" quizbowl versus "bad" quizbowl, so I want to be able to see what is good and what is bad so...
