Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

I have updated the name corrections. I have spoken to Arthur who was the moderator and scorekeeper for the missing GNS A - State College A game and he is looking into it. As for the other missing games I have spoken to our "stats guy" who is looking into them. Here is the link to the semi-corrected ...

Hi:

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

Hi: I was FINALLY given a raw SQBS file for our stats. As in prior years, our "stats guy" was going to have our school's AP Comp Sci teacher upload the stats to his personal website so everyone can see. Since I have not received this, I attempted to upload it to the hsquizbowl.org database myself. I...

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

I want to apologize on behalf of my teammates. As I had mentioned earlier, I was not involved in the compiling of stats. Unfortunately, they did not get done by Monday as I had been promised, and this week is midterms, so there isn't much hope of them being done this week. Once the stats are complet...

Rumors are saying that our "stats guy" can get it done by Monday afternoon, but I wouldn't count on it.

Hi:

We had a meeting today and I was promised that I could get the standings today. Unfortunately, I was misinformed, and the standings are only for the first five rounds. Anyway, here are the first five rounds:

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

I would like to apologize for the fact that the statistics have not yet been released. Unfortunately, I am the last tie to the Blayne era on the Hills West quiz bowl team, and therefore the only person on the team who knows the importance of posting stats on a timely basis. As you may be aware, this...

I want to personally thank all of the teams for their participation in making this tournament the success it was. I understand that we did have some difficulties, and I do apologize for it. It has been a difficult year for the quiz bowl team, working with novice advisors. If it weren’t for Mr. Alan ...

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

I think it is a great idea. Maybe we should tell everyone to name their buzzers before they arrive. Sounds like a much easier way of keeping track of them.

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

We are either going to use Packet 111 or 112A. Our decision will be posted by Monday. It would be greatly appreciated if each team would let us know whether they would attend if we used 111 or 112A. Thanks so much.
