Re: Caesar Rodney Rider Bowl (April 17th, 2010)

Due to the Relay for Life taking place until 6 am that morning, we won't be able to come to this.

Best of luck to you all, and I hope the tournament goes well!

Re: Blue Hen XII (3/20/10) Newark, DE

Unfortunately, I couldn't find enough folks for Saturday, so we won't be competing. I would be happy to help out by moderating though.

I'm trying to round up four team members for this but it's not looking promising... (Damn musicals!) I'll have a direct answer by Wednesday hopefully.

Re: Blue Hen XII (3/20/10) Newark, DE

This is again the first day of tech week for the school play... I may bring a very underclassman version of our A team, otherwise I would be happy to assist with moderating again. I'll have a firmer commitment as we get slightly closer.

Re: Delaware 09-10

All I will say, in closing, is that my statements should not be taken as someone who is speaking as a tournament director -- I am simply stating how my club feels on the topic and how we would vote in a situation where each club had one vote. I have been nothing but honest when I say that my vote wo...

Re: Delaware 09-10

"If we took a vote your way, you guys would win, so let's not do that" isn't a good enough argument, sorry. Literally the exact same argument could be made against your initial suggestion. You've also ignored my broader point, which is that I believe that each individual club should have the same w...

Re: Delaware 09-10

If we do a vote, I think having each school have as many votes as they do teams would be the best option, then that way they could turn in their votes on their team rosters. I agree that we should take a vote; however, I would say each school should receive one vote. Under your proposal, it would b...

Then after lunch the round-robin would be five rounds, total of nine matches for each team? Dr. Greenstone and I are pulling together the logistics on our...

Mount Pleasant A played awesome on an A set but honestly that might be their best performance of the year.

Re: Delaware Fall Open (12/12/09) Wilmington, DE

Due to All-State band auditions and financial matters it looks like we'll be bringing two teams (one V, one JV) to this event. Sorry if this throws something off, I did not have a chance to meet with the team for a final head count until today.

Look forward to seeing you there.

It looks like the date of this tournament is the day after our school's Relay for Life--after which I wonder if we'll have one functioning brain among us. We remain interested, but I'll have to talk with the team as this date gets closer.

Mr. Tressler--I don't think it's going to work this year for us (I think my coach may have already sent an email to you on the topic).

I would be more than willing to help with moderating. Trey [or "ImAPC"] says you may be a few people short?
