NJ/NY/PA Date Claims Thread 2019-2020

Post by Votre Kickstarter Est Nul »

Hey everyone! It's that time of the year again, so, without further ado, announce your NJ-area tournaments here! For reasons you can find in last year's date claims thread, this thread will once again be for NJ postings only. That said, we will include NY/lower CT/upper DE/western PA announcements as appropriate. The idea behind this is to respect the announcements of nearby states but to continue to foster a circuit of our own; doing it this way allows for the easy announcements of a set being mirrored in, for example, both NJ and NY, if appropriate. If you're in a nearby region, I'll monitor your announcement threads so there is no reason to double post; I'll update as fit (PM me if I miss something though).

The ACT and SAT markings are meant for informational purposes; the red text should not be interpreted as a "do not schedule here" it's simply a piece of info to keep in mind. Same goes for major holidays (let me know if I missed any I should have included!)

Obviously in the end, you are free to do what you want, but I'd say that scheduling a tournament the same day as NJ States seems unwise and bad for the circuit. I'd recommend hosting it one weekend earlier, when we have Open House. Given the ideal stature of states, I'd recommend some sort of scheduling around it.

EDIT: We have Open House at RU, not Nats. I messed up which conflict.

Could we update the subject header of this post to include NY and PA, as indicated in the main post?

Done --Mgmt.

I can say that Delaware Valley HS in Milford, PA is hosting its Tri-State Tussle on Saturday, October 5 and will use an IS-A set

Ithaca High School on Ithaca, NY meanwhile will be hosting its BrainBusters Fall tournament most likely on November 9 and will use an IS set

IAC is happy to announce it is holding the following tournaments in the region:

Varsity / JV
  • Lower Hudson - Horace Greeley High School - Saturday, January 11th - on our C Set.
  • New York City - BASIS Independent Brooklyn - Sunday, February 23rd - on our B Set.
  • Connecticut - Newton High School - Saturday, March 7th - on our B Set.
  • Bergen County - Torah Academy of Bergen County - Sunday, January 5th - on our C Set.

Teams may register at this link and find more information about a tournament on the tournament page here. The registration deadline is 7 pm Eastern time on 8 days before the tournament or 7pm Eastern time 5 days before the tournament for an additional $10 late fee per team. There are no registration deadlines for individual events (i.e. walk ins are welcome; please arrive 15 minutes before the beginning of the Bee / Exams as per the schedule on the tournament page).

We will be holding the Varsity / JV National Qualifying Exams for the US Geography Championships / International Geography Bee, US History Bee, (new!) National Science Bee and (new!) National Political Science Bee during the first part of the lunch break. Those who take exam(s) should do the exam(s) first, and then eat afterwards - there will be time to do so. These are 50-question, 20-minute time limit multiple-choice tests - it's $10 per student per Exam. Important Note! - You CAN do 3 or 4 exams, but you still only have a maximum of 40 minutes to take these. You can also do other exams at our upcoming B and A Set tournaments or with a proctor at your school / homeschool association.

Varsity / JV / Middle School
  • Our B Set tournament will not have a Middle School History Bee, but during the History Bee portion of the day, students in grades 8 and younger are welcome to compete in the International Geography Bee Regional Quiz Tournament. Any student in grade 8 and younger is also welcome to play in the JV History Bee as well. Note that the questions used in the middle school division of the History Bowl will be significantly easier than the B Set questions used by the Varsity and JV players.
If you have further questions about:

Northern Pennsylvania, Western Pennsylvania, or Southern New Jersey email Marshall Mullins at [email protected] DOT com

Lower Hudson or the New Jersey State Championships email David Madden at [email protected] DOT com

Western New York, New York City, Long Island Championships, or Connecticut email Michael Borecki at [email protected] DOT com

Is there going to be a state championship this year? April 18 at Rutgers has been on the calendar here and at NAQT.com since early in the year, but that's ACF Nationals weekend, so I don't know how likely that is.
