This Tournament will now be a mirror of Yale's BHSAT.

With only a few days to go before the tournament, I wanted to give you a few important details that will help everything run smoothly on Saturday.

Stats

http://results.scobo.net/SQBS.aspx?org= ... =standings

I would like to again thank Yale for letting us use BHSAT, a set which got good reviews from across the board

I would also like to thank Mr. Edelstein for stepping in as a reader when we needed one.

Overall I thought this tournament went very well despite the relatively low attendance. I was extremely impressed with Chattahoochee's performance seeing as they were missing their captain Sidd. I also watched the Centennial - Alpharetta game, which was one of the most exciting games I have ever watched.

This tournament is seeking PACE certification

We might have gotten some bonuses against Chattahoochee, but that's just speculation. Our final score could have been 170, I guess.

Sorry about that. You scored 110 points on the bonuses, but for some reason that wasn't added into the final score on the scoresheet. I'll get Ananth to fix that and repost the stats.

This was a really enjoyable tournament to play. I thought that the BHSAT set did a really good job at being accessible to all teams (nobody scored below 10 ppb) while still having good lead-ins and third parts that differentiated among top teams. It was great to have one more chance to compete with the top Georgia teams before nationals, and, from the looks of it, a few Georgia teams have the ability to do very well at HSNCT and NSC. I bet Walton moves up in the rankings on the strength of its 24.51 ppb, but I'm not sure Chattahoochee will, unfortunately, despite wins over Centennial, Walton, and us.
