Well that's good, and I know North Hollywood is interested in hosting as well.

Re: Southern California Date Claim 2011-2012

La Jolla has won the bid for the SoCal state championships. They will be hosting it on March 10th at La Jolla High. More details to come at SoCalQB. Now that La Jolla is hosting State Champs, is Rocket Surgery still going to happen? If not, is UCLA going to host another tournament then, since they'...

Re: Carnal Embrace VI at Arcadia High School (2/18/12)

We can definitely consider Sunday Feb. 19 and Monday Feb. 20 as possibilities - I'll update once I hear from more schools.

Barring unforeseen delays, the tournament should be over by around 4:00.

Re: Southern California Date Claim 2011-2012

I'm aware that many people have several other time commitments. However, I'm simply asking if the move for Arcadia's Carnal Embrace back to Feb. 11 (which was the original tentative date) was okay. If not, that's fine too, but I'm just simply asking if this is a possibility. Sorry for any confusion...

Re: Triton Winter III Jan. 21st @ UCSD

Unfortunately Arcadia will not be able to send teams to this tournament since our Science Bowl regional is the same day and we're not going to play devoid of all our science players. Seems to me there have been less tournaments this year so far than in the last few years, especially with Caltech's e...

Re: Southern California Date Claim 2011-2012

I still have not heard anything from Caltech about whether or not Technophobia is happening, and I don't have the faintest idea how the rumor that it was on Dec. 3 got started. It was on the http://www.socalquizbowl.org/tournament-calendar/ scheduled for December 3rd until very recently when it dis...

Re: TWAIN XII at UCLA, October 1st, 2011

Arcadia would prefer an Oct. 8 date for TWAIN as well. I agree with some of the points in that thread too. And we've definitely dealt with tournaments on test dates before. But the fact is that the fall standardized testing dates are even more of a problem due to seniors that may be at the core of m...

Re: 1/15/11 Carnal Embrace V @ Arcadia High School, CA

Possibly Last Field update:

Rancho Bernardo - 2
La Jolla - 4
Diamond Bar - 2
Edison - 1
North Hollywood - 2

This is possibly the last field update, unless we work something out with University, which has been entirely unresponsive to our queries since "expressing interest" exactly a month ago.

Re: 1/15/11 Carnal Embrace V @ Arcadia High School, CA

Field update:

Rancho Bernardo - 2
La Jolla - 4

As you can see we only have 6 teams right now. The bare minimum for the tournament to go ahead is 8 teams; our optimistic goal is 14. Final field update will be posted on Thursday or Friday.

Re: DATE CHANGE: Baby Anteater XII (1/22/11) at UC Irvine

Arcadia very much prefers the 29th as well due to the aforementioned SAT test and science bowl.

We will be able to send 3-4 teams if it is on the 29th, and probably only 1-2 if it is on the 22nd.

Re: DATE CHANGE: Baby Anteater XII (1/22/11) at UC Irvine

Well, this date change has certainly not good for Arcadia quizbowl, as five members of the team including three novices will be competing at the Science Bowl regional on 1/22. I also imagine that any high school quizbowlers who have already signed up for the 1/22 SAT exam might also be inconvenience...
