Assuming we don't go defunct, UCI is likely to host Baby Anteater again in partnership with a local school (Edison again, maybe) on its usual date. I may or may not still be there at that point, though.cchiego wrote:At least three new schools have contacted me indicating their interest in hosting tournaments next year, so we need to get a tournament date wrangling email thread going. If anyone outside of the teams who have hosted tournaments in the past year (UCSD, Torrey, Arcadia, La Jolla, Westview, Irvine) and the three schools who have contacted me thus far (Del Norte, Madison, and Francis Parker) is interested in getting in on this (Claremont? Caltech? others?), email me.

Three of this year's four NAQT A-sets have been used this year for both the Santa Ana Kiwanis Bowl and the Sweetwater Union League. I'd have to check with NAQT on how this is happening but I would suspect that they wouldn't have a problem with a third non-overlapping league using those sets if no one purchases geographic exclusivity for the whole region. It'll be a little bit on the easy side for Uni and Irvine. The other option is to switch over to HSAPQ VHSL or 8-8-8 (if that ends up happening next year).cchiego wrote:bchiang wrote:I am wondering if geographic exclusivity could be used for that set.
Why would you need that? It would make far more sense to have a local San Diego tournament use that set too considering how few NAQT sets there are available each year.

This is plausible given that I think most schools in the area start no later than the week after Labor Day. It might be difficult getting some of those later-starting schools to the tournament, but I think it's doable.DJCocoPuffs wrote:Our current solution is to move the Arcadia tournament back a week to Saturday, September 29. Is this possible/plausible or should Arcadia just relinquish its claim to this tournament?
