Re: Questions/Suggestions About Hosting a Tournament

Hi,
Thank you everyone for the suggestions again, the guide looks awesome and will help a lot. I talked with the school admins and it looks really easy to set everything up. Outside of a week in February, it looks very possible to do, so now I'll have to wait to see and decide on an open date.

Re: Questions/Suggestions About Hosting a Tournament

There's no shame in running a small tournament your first time out. So if you have ~12 people who know what they're doing, you can try to run a 12-16 team tournament. What you absolutely don't want to do is try to hold a 24 or 36 team tournament when you only have 8 people on your team, and expect ...

Just to clarify, on the calendar, I was trying to go off of the empty slots from the times in last year and take into account the new ones planned for this year (For example, E. Brunswick's Funfest) and the time shifts s...

Re: Questions/Suggestions About Hosting a Tournament

Hi Eric, http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=17494 is a schedule of some of the tournaments in the NY/NJ area. The NY/NJ area tends to have a relatively packed schedule throughout the school year. You're right, but I don't think there are too many for another (Yet, at least). I rememb...

Questions/Suggestions About Hosting a Tournament

Hi, I am thinking of trying to get my school* to host a tournament in the coming school year. Our team is new, competing since last year, but besides the other reasons I think hosting a tournament would be a good way for it to continue existing after we leave and attract attention within the school....
