ZOMG UVA's Academic Club finally posts something concerning a tournament on hsqb forums?! Pigs can fly!

Ok, ok, that's quite a bit of an exaggeration, but I welcome the fact that Will Butler has stepped up to duly notify teams instead of avoiding the boards like the plague...

Will, can you send me an email or something and let me know some contact info for you or the UVA team? I'll be in law school there this fall, and while I doubt I'll play much -- if at all -- I'd certainly be interested in helping y'all out with reading and stuff.

(I would've just emailed you but apparently the board doesn't display them anymore. Mine is noahmink@gmail.com.)

Will you be using the same questions as Vanderbilt?

While in the past we have done a swap with Vanderbilt, so far this year nobody has proposed to do that. However, if Vanderbilt would like to do a swap, it probably be in UVA's best interest to do it.

When do you think that you will know one way or the other? I have to get a tournament schedule to the administration pretty soon, and we'd like to be able to attend both tournaments if possible.

Mr. Huff, your question is one that I have as well. I'm doing my best to stay away from decision making and such from now on, but I'll mention to Jack that he should figure out what to do on the questions front (he had been in Egypt or something crazy for a while recently). Will, are you the best contact at UVa for this?

Any idea whether or not you'll be seeking PACE affiliation, Will? I can't remember if this tournament was a qualifier last year...

Awesome. Thanks, Will. We only have 2 full teams set at the moment, but hopefully we'll be able to bring several.

Note that there has been a change. This year instead of doing the Cavalier Classic as a house written set, we will be using HSAPQ
ACF Set #2. This is a different set than what is being used at UMD. To register please email me at wab2m@virginia.edu

Sadly, we can't attend due to a taping for "It's Academic". I'm not sure how many other DC-area teams that affects on this date...

Dear Will,

Fairfax HS competed in the previous three Cavalier Classics, but this year we were inadvertently left out of the contact loop for the October tournament. Having said that, is there still any slots open for our team next Saturday?........please let us know asap.

Will,

This Saturday many of our seniors cannot attend because early applications for college are due next week. Therefore our B and C teams are more like our C and D teams. Please keep this in mind when bracketing our teams.

To add on to this, they also seem very disciplined (through two games) as they have only two negs.

I see Gonzaga's putting up some pretty crazy numbers, too.
