Re: NY Discussion 2011-12

Any thoughts as we reach the middle of the season? Have certain teams disappointed? Have certain teams done better than expected?

A Stuyvesant team was in the top 16 also i believe. I know they had three teams in the playoffs and im pretty sure either their a or b team were top 16

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

TDs should have discretionary power to force certain teams to play elite, if it's offered, but even that should really be reserved for obvious situations. I assume it would also be used to round out the field because if teams self-select then they would likely not create the perfect number of teams...

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

I started writing this before Sam posted his reply but I feel a second opinion wouldn't hurt. I may be wrong. This tournament really should have 3 divisions next year: Elite, Regular, and JV. Each could have about 30 teams. While the example you make with White Plains is good, I cannot help feel tha...

Re: Half Hollow Hills West Invitational (Dix Hills, NY 1/7/2012)

While i think it would be awesome to have at least 100 teams at this tournament, 96 would be a really good number of teams as there would be 16 groups of 6 and the top two (or four if you add an extra round) in each group would make playoffs.

Re: From Chip to "good quizbowl"

One of the main problems of our team, in my opinion at least, is that there are more people than in the past but they are less committed. This is in itself may present a large problem in transitioning to "good quizbowl" because the members of the team may be less inclined to go out of Westchester ea...

Re: Umbrella Facebook group/some way to play with other teams

Re: History Bowl Winners: 2011/2012

Horace Greeley didn't win the JV Bowl in Westchester/LoHud. Irvington B won despite a worse prelim score.

Re: Westchester Bowl

Is there any information as to when the full results will be posted on the website, not just for this tournament but for all of them? I would really like to see them. I also have a question about the likelihood of both the Long Island and New York City tournaments running on the C set. I appreciate ...
