The Motley Eye wrote:Did you contact any of the Virginia schools on the Eastern Shore? I know Nandua has become active on the circuit, and I know that Chincoteague plays VHSL Scholastic Bowl. I can help you find contact information for them if you don't have it already. Tournaments at CR and Wilmington Charter are probably more accessible to them than tournaments on the other side of the Chesapeake.

I know for sure all of A team (me included) won't be able to make it, so I guess for the meantime you can put us down as interested, but probably won't decide on anything until after spring break.

List of villages in West Virginia wrote:We may need moderator help at this tournament by the way. I counted on at least somebody bringing a competent moderator but literally no teams are bringing any coach who has volunteered to do this.
Why is that, by the way? I volunteer at every tournament we ever attend, and i would do it without any discount if it wasn't offered. It's courtesy. I guess that's a discussion for another time.
Anyway, if you CAN bring a competent moderator, please do it.
Also, uh, i guess if you want to make the drive to our school... we might need to outsource more readers here.

For one, I think most coaches would prefer to follow and work with their teams. Secondly, I don't know how skilled/competent/willing some coaches or chaperones are at moderating. I don't know if this is different at other regions--maybe coaches are more eager to read.

Please respond or expect me to track down a phone number at your school and bug you Friday, especially Haverford as you signed up for the Blue Hen Invitational and did not show up to that tournament in March.

And notably a lot of other tournaments hosted by Charter and UD
