Re: NAQT Sectionals Region 4 2/6/10 at George Mason

Matt is right in that 2/20 does sound good to me. We did promise to help moderate at TJ's tournament on that date, but all the outliers look towards that being a more positive date for the SCT to be held. I will confirm with teammates and Dr. Chuck if that is the date we wish to hold it on.

You can put George Mason down for 1 team, and our packet will probably be in before the October 10th deadline. Would we get any discount since our team is considered by ACF as a "newer team" and since we don't have to write a packet if we didn't want to?

Re: Sue Pasco Opening Tournament (9/26/09 at Essex Junction, VT)

Why not use an HSAPQ set from this year that serves better quality questions? Chances are that many teams have already played on IS-84A, and I think you would be doing them a favor by using a HSAPQ set instead of an NAQT set.
