Maybe we could start with a "blackout date" list as well as a "goal" number of tournaments for next year's season. I won't be here next year so I'm just trying to help out :)"I would like for the schedule next year to be better defined further in advance so teams can prepare and so we can advertise a full schedule in our mailings to new teams; perhaps we should have some kind of SoCalQB online gathering to help plan out the schedule for next year come May/June."
Blackout Date List (tiered by number of people attending):
San Diego Youth Symphony and others (because of regularity)
Please help insert activities like Science Olympiad, Mock Trial, Science Bowl, some Latin thing I recall people talking about, Debate tournaments, Youth orchestra concerts...
Goal Number and Composition of Tournaments:
I'm just throwing out a random composition...feel free to make comments.
2 Novice (FNT and an IS-A)
3 Housewrites (2 "harder" Pre-nationals and 1 that's more "regular")
PLUS: at least 1 NHBB
From October to May there are around 7 months (not counting breaks) of possible tournament dates.
There could be around two tournaments a month.
