The Darien Invitational will be held on IS-152 on January 30. We are also bidding for mirroring ACF regionals for high schools on that same date.

Perhaps I do not know where to look, but does anyone have any news on the History Bee and Bowl results for the NHBB competitions held this weekend at Princeton on Saturday and Tenafly on Sunday? Perhaps you can point me to a site that has this information? So far I have not found one.

Thanks.

Mr. Powers:

I don't know about NHBB at Tenafly, but at Princeton, High Tech A and East Brunswick A finished first and second, respectively, in the varsity Bowl, and Alex Schmidt of Lehigh Valley took first in the JV Bowl. In the varsity Bee, Sam K. of High Tech, Emmett L. of East Brunswick, and Andrew H. of High Tech took first, second, and third respectively. Doug S. of High Tech beat Alex Schmidt in the JV Bee to take first.

The results at Teaneck / Torah Academy to the best of my knowledge:
Bergen defeated Ridgewood 260-200 in the Varsity Bowl final. Julian from Kings Park [clap] won the Varsity Bee over David and Rebecca from Bergen.
I think the JV final was Newark Academy A vs B, and I am completely spacing out on who won the JV Bee.

Thanks Sam and Jon for reporting these results. I will reciprocate when St. Joe's attends the Southern NJ regional at Donovan Catholic on December 12th.

Can we get an updated version of the calendar? There's the one in the first post, the more updated version downthread, and new info since then (e.g. A Set for NHBB on 3/12 is at Phillipsburg, not Seton Hall). The NHBB tournaments, fwiw, are up to date as reflected at historybowl.com though I'm in the process of seeing about a 3rd area A Set tournament at Tuxedo Park.

Would anyone who is pleading for an updated calendar like to work on that themselves? Or, if other people have made their own individual regional calendars, would they like to share those?

NHBB will run a new tournament, the Hudson Valley Championships, at Tuxedo Park School on Saturday, Feb. 20 on A Set. This is a 3rd version of A Set in the area to complement the Mid-Atlantic Championships at Phillipsburg HS on March 12 and the Long Island Championships at Kings Park HS on April 3. Effectively, this will mean we'll have the same number of tournaments in the Greater NYC area as last year - the tournament site that ran last school year and isn't running this year in the area is Seton Hall Univ. Sign up as always at http://www.historybowl.com/registration
This tournament may have a middle school division as well in the Bowl - we're looking into that.

This calendar is what I use for planning for our team, so some of these are in Pennsylvania but I figured since PA is accessible to many NJ teams I would leave them on. I will also indicate when a tournament is tentative.

12/26: None

1/9: Scarsdale?
1/16: NHBB NJ States @ Ridgewood HS (B Set)
1/23: Columbia Winter Tournament (BISB)
1/30: QUAC @ Penn (heard it might be moved)/Darien Invitational (IS-152/ACF Regs)

Ridgewood High School's quiz bowl team will be hosting its first tournament this year, most likely mirroring CALI. We are strongly considering April 9th. Could any of you with more experience in the realm of tournament management give your opinion on if this date is fine, or if having Prison Bowl the week before and Kings Park the week after will probably decrease the number of teams attending? May seems rather late in the year for quiz bowl, but we have no background in this area, so maybe we're wrong.

Any chance of a pre-nationals warm-up style tournament? Maybe on D2-SCT (I'm pretty sure all nationals teams in NJ haven't played that). Just a small thing in May (first weekend?). I don't know who would host or if its possible but just putting it out there in case someone can
