Re: MSU/UD Collaborative Tournament - 10/20, Newark DE

I want to agree with others on how well written we found this set. We were impressed that the content was not too esoteric for our novice teams, but did provide a fair competition for our varsity teams. Thank you for hosting this tournament.

Re: ANCHORMAN: Richard Montgomery Autumn Novice (10/6/12)

Centennial High School will send 2 teams for sure.
We are working to see if we can field a third team and perhaps one from our feeder middle school Burleigh Manor.

I agree with John Gilbert that I should have also thanked Chris Ray for the extensive training that allowed us to improve our question set.
Years ago, he and others offered to help. He delivered.... big time.
