Re: Idaho discussion 2011-2012

Looks good to me. Unofficially, Frenchtown should definitely be able to make the Treasure Valley Tournament. We would also be interested ACF Fall or the Jayhawk Tournament were it not another 8 hour drive on the following weekend, which also happens to be an SAT date. Colin, thanks for being such a ...

Re: Montana 2010-2011

Glad to see you here on the forums, Coach McFate! I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you in some areas here. for the exception of a few teams with great players not many of the questions are being answered until the last portion is read. I see this as a positive for pyramidal questions....

We're officially bringing one team. We could bring a buzzer too, if you want. Also, do you have a field update?

Re: Fall Kickoff Tournament at Boise State (9/30/10)

This should be great. Thanks for hosting!
Frenchtown is formally expressing interest and will very likely be bringing one team.
Wait, the Fall "Kickoff" Tournament is different than the Fall Novice Tournament, right? Hopefully?

Re: Planned HS Top 25(+?) Rankings

Frenchtown returns me, Mary, and Michael (who is still in the PACE stats as "Matt" from Totally Awesome Dudes). We lose history and chemistry/bio knowledge due to the graduation of both Joe and Taylor. We also return a sophomore who almost made the NSC team, if that counts.

"Negs" had been in effect in most of the tournaments we'd played in, it's just that they had never been referred to as such.
Whereas at HSNCT, it was instantly neg, neg, neg, neg, neg.
