Teams that were planning to play LIFT but are unable to get in, or find themselves deep on a waitlist, due to field size, are welcome to join us at Ithaca High School for the Third Annual BrainBusters Fall tournament on November 1, 2014, three weeks prior to LiFT. BB Fall will be using the same IS-140 question set as Brother Nigel and his crew at Kellenberg, and we currently have 16 teams officially registered with a field cap of 64. If you don't mind making the drive up to the beautiful Finger Lakes area of upstate New York, we'd love to have you at BB Fall, which we anticipate being the largest single-day quizbowl tournament ever held in upstate New York. We are also working with local hotels to reserve room blocks at discounted rates for teams from outside the immediate area who might want to drive in Friday night and stay the night before, stay Saturday night after the tournament, or both.

The link to the official BB Fall tournament announcement, including links to our official Google Form for registration is viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15975.

Ransom can definitely supply 1 moderator (yours truly). We would prefer not to fly with our system, but if slap-bowl is imminent due to field expansion, we can bring it.

Livingston sent an email and follow ups beginning a month ago to request a 3rd team for the competition, which appeared to be available at that point. We also can bring a buzzer or two as needed. Is there a field update? Thank you!

Another school just dropped.
Wilmington Charter's 4th team is in.
Is any other school interested in the one open spot?
Can any school currently in the field bring an extra team?

Apologies for not dropping the 4th team earlier, but at this point it won't be feasible for us to arrange transportation and file paperwork with our school for bringing them.

Stats: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/2343 (FYI: Comp math tossups were not used, but comp math bonuses were.)

Top two teams in each Prelim bracket were placed into two 8 team brackets and then a crossover game was played to determine final places. Third place teams played in another 8 team bracket.

Hope all enjoyed! Thanks for attending.
