Brother Nigel - while SHP will not be able to attend any tournaments until after the new year, I was wondering if you might like to have an additional moderator for the afternoon. I am training a new assistant coach and I would love both to give him some real-time experience, as well as shake-off my own rust! Please let me know!

Brother Nigel,
Hunter could bring two buzzer sets if it would be convenient. Also, would it be possible for us to get an invoice? My email is luke1865@gmail.com. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Stats are up!

I'd like to especially thank the coaches of North Babylon, GNS, "the Joe," and Bergen for moderating all day, Mike Z (former coach from Seton Hall) and the new coach for moderating one game, Jon P. from Bergen for bracketing advice, Rob C. from Kings Park for offering his assistance all day long, Kellenberg AQB alums Hunter Book '09, Jim Trainor '15, Matt York '16, Pat Pallisco '16 for moderating. I am also indebted to Kellenberg AQB alum John Beauregard '98 (member of our earliest QB teams) who for years has been the SQBS Stat guy. Finally KMHS NHS and their moderators, especially Tom Kennedy '09 who helped out all day behind the scenes, and finally our new assistant coach Victoria LaMonica '09.
