Re: BATE NAQT Tournament at Bloomfield High School-March 3, 2012

High Tech beat Millburn (in a very tight final) to win.
The playoffs were single-elim, but Livingston and Leonia were the other two semifinalists, I believe.

Chatham
High Tech
Millburn

MAST
Leonia
Livingston
Pingry

I'm not sure how many teams each school is sending, but High Tech is only sending one.

Learning Geography

How should I go about learning geography? Do I just...look at maps? I know Sporcle does have geography quizzes, but I don't think they give me a good idea of the physical geographic characteristics within each state/country.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Re: Selecting a NJ All Star Team to Attend the 2012 NASAT

For example, should we proceed as we did last year, and simply nominate players and vote for them, or should the nominees then compete to make the NASAT Team of 4---or 5---or 6 players? If try-outs are preferred, does anyone know of a pristine set of questions that can be purchased for this purpose...

Re: RESCHEDULED: THE SJHS MIRROR OF GSAC XIX, SUNDAY 2/12/12

It's not a particularly important error, but High Tech C's team members tell me that the last-round (HT C vs. Chatham) stats for Adithya Kannan and Eric Liu were switched. (Eric got 1 tossup, Adithya got 6.)

Re: NY/NJ Date Claims 2011-2012

Perhaps I'm just a bit oblivious, but I haven't seen any news on the board about Bloomfield's BATE tournament. I know they claimed an NAQT IS set, but the lack of announcements was a bit anxiety-inducing. Does anyone know whether the Bloomfield tournament is definitely on?

Thank you in advance.

Re: POSTPONED: The Garden State Mirror of GSAC XIX, 1/21/12

After surveying the team, the consensus from High Tech seems to be that we would all like to see a Sunday 2/12 makeup date. All other dates either fall directly after another tournament we're attending or conflict with a major non-quizbowl event. 2/5: After NHBB and is apparently Superbowl day 2/26:...

Near High Tech, the snow seems to have abated, and there's less than a half-inch on the ground. It shouldn't be a problem for us at all. We really would love the opportunity to hear this set, and we would definitely prefer not to see a cancellation. EDIT: Because we've promised our teammates a decis...

Re: The Garden State Mirror of GSAC XIX, January 21st, 2012

We would really prefer not to cancel unless conditions are absolutely unsafe, since 1/28 is an SAT date (and despite the fact that I'm a senior, I'm scheduled to take one). 1-2 inches (i.e. easily driveable conditions) should be fine.

Thanks, Mr. Powers.

High Tech, as far as I know will be bringing three teams. I'm not really sure about that particular number.
However, we will definitely be able to supply one buzzer system. No moderators.
