Updated the information about the number of teams we can accommodate for LIFT.

Since we need to limit the field, could those of you who downloaded a registration form kindly post here or email me as to how many teams and buzzers you intend to bring.

Thank you.

“O不OK?” (Is it alright?) is one of the most awesome sentences ever. It takes the Chinese word OK and puts it in the A-not-A question format, unabashedly treating the letter O as a verb, and the letter K as a resultative complement.

Bumped.

Current field is around 28-30 teams for Saturday. It would make for great brackets if we could get to 35 or 36, so we still have some room. The more the merrier!

Stats.

28 teams. Prelims were 4 groups of 7. Top 3 from each bracket went to 2 playoff brackets of 6 each. Final crossover game to determine places 1 to 12.

Interesting note: 4 of the 6 crossover games came down to either the second to last or last question.
Championship: Millburn A d. High Tech C 330-255 (after 18 ques. 285-260)
3rd place: St. Joe A d. High Tech A 305-255 (after 19 ques. 275-260)
5th place: Hunter A d. Ridgewood A 415-200
7th place: High Tech B d. GNS A 375-150
9th place: Irvington d. St. Joe B 250-235 (after 19 ques. 230-235)
11th place: Ridgewood B d. Red Bulls 245-190 (after 19 ques. 235-190)

Thanks to all who helped moderate and advise, especially Coach Mike Z (Seton Hall) and Coach Ed P (St. Joe).

If we can at all help it, we are NOT going to hold LIFT on a PSAT day again! Therefore, we hope to see many more of you next year!

My name is spelled wrong in the stats as is my teammate's. I mean it's not really a big deal but if my handwriting was so atrocious on the roster sheet, it does represent a bigger problem.

As a senior from the Hunter team, I would like to thank Brother Nigel for running another excellent LIFT. LIFT was the first tournament I attended five years ago and has been a tournament that I have looked forward to ever since. The tournament was smoothly run and I would like to thank everyone at Kellenberg for that.

From PACE...

"Congratulations! PACE (the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence) has awarded your tournament, LIFT XII, platinum certification. This means that the top 25% of teams in your tournament (rounded up to the nearest integer) will qualify for our national high school quizbowl championship, the PACE NSC (details pending). The qualifying teams will get to register early for the NSC starting on December 1st."

Thought you might want to know. So that means Millburn A, High Tech C, St. Joe's, High Tech A, Hunter, Ridgewood A, and High Tech B all qualify. Congrats.
