Re: New York Discussion 2012-13

Does anyone know if Half Hollow Hills West is having their tournament this year (and if so, when, and on what possible set) ?

I know that they usually have their tournament the first Saturday in January, but according to the NAQT website that is now also the date of Scarsdale's tournament.

Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2012-2013

According to the NAQT website, Wilmington Charter will be hosting a tournament using IS-120 and IS-121A (I'm assuming separate varsity and jv divisions?) on November 3. IS-120 is being used by Kellenberg and IS-121A by Yale for FAcT, but given that the dearth of tournaments in NJ in November, it may...

Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2012-2013

Looking at the schedule on NAQT's website, the Northern NJ/NYC Metro area may need to start paying a lot of attention to which sets are claimed by who and on what day. Here's the way claimed NAQT sets stand right now: IS: 118: Maryland, Princeton, Scarsdale 120: Kellenberg 122: Livingston 124: Bloom...

Harry, as you weren't in PACE when that was decided, I'm not sure where you thought that was the case.

Aside from Andrew Hart's set, other options might also be the Minnesota Undergraduate Tournament set (Minnesota/UIUC collaboration). Although, the MUT itself isn't happening until March and they have a few mirrors going on as well, so it may not be available.
