Consolation Brackets

I am planning on hosting a tournament using round-robin pool play in the morning for seeding and then breaking into a tournament for the afternoon. If you were on a team that was not competing for the big trophies, would you still want to play out the rest of the tourney in full consolation brackets...

Selecting a Question Vendor and/or Question Set Type

In Virginia, the state VHSL format allows 10 or 15 seconds past the end of the math questions (I believe), but the question is read twice so the second reading often gives a good bit of computation time. Neg 5's only apply on the first reading. Our local MACC competition which has a math team as wel...

Tech Triumph Tournament

As coach of a team from SW Virginia, I know that Auburn HS will certainly come to the VT tourney as opposed to travelling to NoVA. We might possibly bring two teams. We start practice tomorrow, and I will see how many players are going to be available for that weekend. I am slightly concerned about ...

Note on the date for NAQT States : 4/21/07 is the date for the VHSL Sate Debate Tournament. This conflct kept Auburn from attending this year and would likely keep us out next year as well. (At least half of our team is also on the debate team). I am excited about the prospect of having a tournament...

Small Division

As a coach at a small school that is new to the invitational circuit, I am in full support of a small school division. Now, as far as scheduling goes, I hope that this tournament is not scheduled against the VHSL Debate Tournament.. (At least half of my team is heavily involved in debate)
