Personally, I find it extremely useful to see all the tournaments in one place, especially when there are links to all the tournament announcements on the calendar. It's a lot easier than sifting through the tournament announcements or the entire date claim thread. But like you said, it is only useful when it is up to date. Thanks Jeff for updating the calendar so quickly.

Doesn't that conflict with both the NCIS at Cave Spring and the NHBB qualifier?

While it does conflict with NCIS at Cave Spring its been pointed out in the past that our circuits are distinct enough that it shouldn't make a big difference to either of us. It seemed to work fine with both the Metro-Richmond Invitational and the Blacksburg High Invitational in January. In reference to NHBB, we're hosting on the B set tomorrow and teams can also play the A set in March at the Virginia Championship at Monticello.

Our tournament will be a mirror of Hunter College's Prison Bowl VI. We hope teams from around the mid-Atlantic will join us to prepare for nationals on an excellent set.

I'd like to remind teams in the region that we'll be hosting Blue Hen Invitational on 3/23, and we still have plenty of space left in the field. Just shoot me an email at asgross@udel.edu to register.

Hey, I'm pretty sure I posted about this awhile back, but I think that was for last season and I'm not sure we have an appropriate thread now, so I'm just hijacking this one.

A friend of mine who was one of my favorite readers to use while I was hosting in WV is now working in Charlottesville and is willing to help with tournaments when he can. If you'd like his contact info, let me know.

I was just wondering if Maryland is still planning to host their Spring Classic this year? It appears uncertain after their Fall Tournament plans fell through.

Is GDS still planning on hosting a Ben Cooper memorial tournament this year?

I talked to Noah earlier today and he seemed to indicate that they won't be hosting anything for the rest of the year.

On a related note, is there anything scheduled for 5/4 or 5/11? I know we may not be able to make it to Gov on 5/18, and we'd love if someone wanted to step up and host a pre-Nationals tournament on one or both of those weekends.

I'm pretty sure that OM can't host anything, either saturday or sunday, for the rest of the year. Unfortunately, we would (most likely) not be able to go to a tournament on either the 4th, the 11th, or the 18th, either. Any sunday of those weekends would work for us, though.
