Re: HSQBRank 2014-15

High Tech's 23.89 ppb at PHSAT on IS-138 probably deserves a mention.

Re: NJ 2014 NAQT State Championship - May 17

Just wanted to pop in here to say that this was the most well run regular season tournament I've ever attended. Seriously, 12 rounds, a circle of death, and a substantial lunch break were done by 5:30, which was a very good job.

Re: QuBIT @ High Tech - Lincroft, NJ (2/15/14) [IMSANITY]

Unfortunately QuBIT will be canceled. We could not get enough teams signed up to financially justify the tournament, and there is a threat of snow, so we are not holding it. We would also like to apologize for the mess, and thank you for your patience.

The problem lay more with the fact the tournament was in fact losing money if it ran this Saturday, so we decided to postpone it in hope of allowing more teams to sign up. Do you have to pay to reserve rooms or something like that? Effectively. We need to pay for custodial staff to keep our buildin...
