Re: UD Fall Tournament - 10/26/13 (Newark, DE)

Manheim Township would have come if we had confirmation sooner, or we would still come if the tournament was on a different date. I know that isn't an option at this point, so it looks like we will miss IS 128 this year. We specifically didn't go to Princeton because we intended to come to this tour...

There really aren't that many PA tournaments. Actually, I can count the number of announced tournaments on one hand at this...

If anyone could send a message with the final details as to when/where players should meet for this, I would appreciate it. Two players from my team signed up, and they did not receive the email.

With the addition of our 24th team this afternoon, the field is now full.

We will start a wait list and consider increasing the field to 30 if there's enough interest and we have enough moderators.

However, Blue Hen is on that date - would it be possible for the UD people to move Blue Hen a week back to the 16th, where it would have little (if any) overlap with VCU Spring? The 16th is the History Bowl in PA. I don't know how many other PA teams will attend Blue Hen, but this would create a co...

I believe Lancaster, PA can now be removed from this list. We've had an active quiz bowl league since the '90's, but we voted last night to switch to NAQT questions.

You are correct that the stats must have been entered incorrectly. Manheim Township had 3 minus 5's, not 13. This might have been our first attempt at NAQT in many years, we aren't that bad!
