Thanks for doing this!

Harvard is claiming November 5th for HFT XI. (Which, unfortunately, is an SAT test date as well, I believe.)

Darien (CT) will be hosting an NAQT A-set on November 5. We shouldn't be overlapping with HFT very much - we'll be focusing on drawing CT teams plus maybe some novices in the NYC metro area.

Smithtown West (Long Island) will be hosting SWISS 1 on September 17, using IS-158. We'd love to have New England teams come down! (Actually, we're the only tournament running that set in New England, so you all should definitely come on down.) The forum post is here.

Confirming that this is happening on 9/24. In a change from previous years, we will not be using an A-set; this tournament will be run on IS-158.

As of right now, it looks like Darien Invitational II will be moving to the 12th (of Nov.). We will know for certain by the end of the month.

The WGBH auditions for High School Quiz Show are being held on November 13th, Super Sunday at the Boston studios. Many Mass teams do this, so it's probably a good idea to have it on the date claim calendar. I also think this could be an outreach opportunity to attract teams/schools new to the QB world. Could we get a flyer or post card that teams can hand out to other teams on this day?

Maybe someone could host a high school novice tournament on December 3rd that these new teams could be invited to?

You can add the following Vermont tournaments:

* GHOST (Vermont vs. NH states tournament), Oct. 29 at Hanover HS
* Vermont NAQT Championship, March 10 (Friday) at Spaulding HS
* Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl Finals, March 25, site TBA

We'll add a Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl playoff date at Montpelier HS either in late January or early February and a Vermont History Bowl at Burlington HS, likely on the Saturday we don't choose for the Scholars' Bowl playoffs.

Also, the New Hampshire Quiz Bowl League regional tournaments are:

10/15 at Lisbon
12/17 at Merrimack
2/11 at Hanover
3/4 at Portsmouth Christian
3/25 at Kingswood

The NHQBL state finals are April 2nd, I think at the state capitol.

And a New Hampshire History Bee and Bowl is 11/19 at Hanover.

Massachusetts State Championship will be on 1/28/17 at Hingham HS (B-Set).
Vermont's regional will be on 2/18/17 at Burlington HS (B-Set).
Connecticut's regional will be on 3/4/17 at Newtown HS (B-Set).

Finally, the New England Championships on 4/8/17 @ ConVal Regional HS in Peterborough, New Hampshire (A-Set). This is a date change.

AMSA would like to reserve January 7 for a tournament in Marlborough, MA. I think we're calling it Marlborough Academic Team CHallenge (MATCH). We'll be playing NAQT question packet IS-162. We'll have more details coming soon.

Dates updated above! In particular, MA States will be on 1/28; the website shows 1/7 at the moment, but we're moving it to keep clear of AMSA's MATCH event.

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for History Bowl results to get posted on the History Bowl website? Still waiting to see the results of the New Hampshire Bowl on November 12.

Considering it is the first weekend of Massachusetts' April vacation, the 15th is a pretty awful date for public school teams.
