CANCELLED - GREYSON at TJ (4/30/11)

Post by reindeer »

TJHSST's housewrite this year, the GREYSON (Greatly Rewarding Experience You Should Obviously Navigate), will be held at TJ on April 30, 2011.

The final field cap will depend on how some of our younger members do as readers, but we should be able to easily accommodate at least 24 teams. To register, please sign up at http://activities.tjhsst.edu/quizbowl/tjiatreg.php, and feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions regarding registration or this tournament.

The base fee will be $70 per team, with a $10 discount for each working buzzer set or staffer.

Checks should be made payable to TJHSST, with "Quizbowl tournament" in the subject line. We prefer checks be brought on the day of the tournament, but mailing in advance is fine.

Location:
Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST)
6560 Braddock Road
Alexandria, VA 22312
Mailed checks should be sent c/o Jean Stevens.

Hey everyone, this tournament is in less than three weeks. With two teams registered, the field is still wide open--we're awaiting your registrations at http://activities.tjhsst.edu/quizbowl/tjiat.php!

I'd love to come, my friends, but it's not in the cards for B-CC...

Walter Johnson has expressed an intent to register, and hopefully other teams will too. It is true, though, that this tournament is unlikely to happen unless they do.

If we don't have at least 8 teams for this tournament by Wednesday at 10 PM, we're going to have to cancel it. It would be great if that didn't happen, so sign up!

Five teams just aren't enough and it doesn't look like more are coming, so this tournament is not going to happen. TJ will probably use the set in its fall tournament next year.

Hm, I guess there's no point in us filling out that form now? Sorry for being so slow, but we actually did get 4 players to commit to going today...

Yeah, this was during our Spring Break as i've mentioned before. It just wasn't going to happen for us, nor would any competition during our Spring Break, which is always always the week after Easter.

We have multiple spaces still available so I would certainly not object to any team registered for GREYSON coming to our tournament.
