FYI, this might be a bad choice of days. Many (34 so far) of Nassau's High Schools will be involved in the Regional Science Olympiad Competition on this date (Suffolk's Regional is on the 12th.) Of course, this presumes that the Quiz Bowl team are also on the SO team. Kellenberg's are, so we will not be able to attend.

On the contrary, this is the perfect day for this event, because the more teams that choose to go to Science Olympiad instead of this event, the better.

Thank you for the heads up about the scheduling conflict. I'm sorry about it, and that your team won't be able to attend. I'll pass word along, and see if there's anything we can do.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

And now I will ask the questions which are CERTAINLY on everyone's mind:
Did Hills West reclaim their title? Did North Babylon make up for their loss last year? DID MORE THAN 12 TEAMS SHOW UP?!
