That's were things become complicated, because last year we had a freshman who probably would not be eligible for this and this year about half of our sophomores wouldn't be... We'll come up with a qualification system soon, hopefully.

Well, by the old system, Collegiate wouldn't be in anyway because they've beaten Maggie B. Also, Colleigate has already qualified for PACE because of their second place finish at Cave Spring. Oh yeah. they did, didn't they? :oops: Good job, Dr. Barnes. I wouldn't mention this to your wife if I were...

They should be eligible. We don't have a set standard just yet, but if they're all newer players they should qualify on whatever system we go with. I also see no problem with allowing middle school players, but Cameron should probably have the final say on that. Usually he reads this forum fairly re...

Why not make it 'anyone who hasn't already qualified for nationals' (akin to the Cinderella bracket from Patriot Games and DACQ Weekend of Quizbowl). And for that matter, are we going to try to make this a PACE qualifying event? Greg actually suggested seeking PACE affiliation to attract the B and ...

If all you go to is GSAC, you should be eligible for this tournament. In fact, I'll edit that into my first post as that's a good point. Thanks for bringing that up.

JV tournament at Maggie Walker?

Edit: This event is now tentatively scheduled for April 26 (meaning we still need official approval and to actually finish our questions). This event is still in the planning/writing stage right now, but Maggie Walker (known to some of you as Gov) is considering hosting a JV tournament late this sea...

At practice early this year, due to hearing the word land instead of gland followed by "islets of La...

However, I'm not above admitting that in my early career as a QE (meaning this summer) I had a lot of the same problems. I was just fortunate to have guidan...

Maggie Walker made it home safely and had an awesome time. One suggestion I would make though, would be to work on your distribution a bit and also to try to eliminate repeats where possible. Okay, so that's two suggestions. But you may find them helpful, as your program is still pretty new. The tou...

As long as we're pimping our college tournaments for the top high school teams, I'm also still looking for teams for ACF Fall this Saturday at VCU. On a calm Saturday morning Richmond is either 2.5 hours from the Maryland suburbs of DC (Chris Romero school of driving) or 1.7 hours (Sorice-Weiner me...

Yeah, we were being perhaps a little too cautious...which may have hurt in all those 1-2 toss-up losses.

Greg definitely owned. Also, playing 13 games was awesome. We may have done a little better with Andrew or Palmer, but it was a great experience overall.

*shameless plug* GSAC is house-written and follows NAQT distribution fairly closely. We definitely aren't skewed in any direction. But a lot of housewritten tournaments are. That's just how it goes.

In response to yangsta's comment, the two moderators that gave MLWGS the most trouble were definitely not n00bs. They were both there last year and the same issues came up this year. I agree with Quint that he really is not well-liked by the moderators and i admit that sometimes he is off base, but ...

One of my teammates thought he remembered last year's tournament being a PACE qualifier...so, two questions: 1) Was it? and 2) Is it this year? Gov also had an awesome time last year.

Gov is interested in coming. 11/17 would probably work better for us, as 12/1 is so close to our own tournament date.

MLWGS would probably be interested in attending; Dr. Barnes announced that the team itself will be more active in choosing which tournaments we go to. We've gone to overnights before, so it probably wouldn't be too much of a problem. And I'm sure Quint probably misses you. :smile:
