I believe that Whitman was planning on hosting its tournament on April 5th. Perhaps you could host this on the same day as NAQT Virginia States, whenever that is.

GDS is interested in bringing somewhere between 1 and 5+ (!) teams, with middle school players likely included.

EDIT: It would help if I included "teams."

While I agree with what earlier posters in this thread said, I'll try it anyway. 1. Shantanu Jha, Whitman. 2. I really can't decide between Dorman A and Whitman. Dorman looked more impressive when I played them, but I last played Whitman in September on the local format of the DC area. I see them fi...

Great question, sorry I didn't address that in the original post. Normally it does, but this year it doesn't. This set will not conflict with ANY NAQT HS set (IS, IS-A, or any of the league and special State sets). If the SCT DII set is ready in time for this tournament, could it be used instead of...
