DC/MD/VA Date Claim 08-09

Post by aestheteboy »

I'm hoping that this thread would be useful both for hosts who are looking for an open date and for participants who are looking for tournaments to go to. I'll periodically edit to update the information, but please post whatever information I may miss, and I'll add it in. I'll probably add college tournaments to the list once I have the dates, mostly for my own benefit.

DC/MD/VA
2/21 - VCU Spring
2/28 - VHSL States at William and Mary
3/4 - Blake afterschool
3/7 - VA NAQT States at UVA
3/14 and 3/15 - Weekend of Quizbowl at George Mason
March - Blue Hen at Delaware
3/21 - BATE Mirror
3/28 - RAQIT at Robinson
4/4 - Rappoff at Rappahannock County
4/18 - VCU Season Finale
4/25 - HAVOC II at Gov

College
2/28 ACF Regionals
3/21 and 3/22 Fake Nationals Weekend at VCU
4/25 ACF Nationals

Less Close
2/21 - Belles' Bowl at Saint Mary's (NC)
3/7 - BATE at Bloomfield (NJ)
3/21 - RTO at Raleigh Charter (NC)
3/28 - BHSAT at Yale (CT)
3/28 - Livingston (NJ)

Wilmington Charter hosts the ninth annual Delaware Fall Open on Dec. 13th, 2008.
The University of Delaware (in coordination with Bill Tressler of Charter) will also host the Blue Hen Invitational XI sometime in March 2009.

I will be forced into a date switch this year due to (of all things!) a fireman's convention that has already booked the building. I thought in September I would ask last year's attendees for input on what would work. I'm actually OK with the tournament being a little smaller this year, like 30 teams instead of 48, because we are in the middle of a large building renovation.

Blue Hen XI is probably in March, avoiding WoQ, Science Olympiad, and Spring Breaks as much as possible.

Thanks for doing this... you may also want to add the following:

VHSL States 2/28 @ William & Mary (Can Shaun confirm this?)

There was also some talk by the Scholastic Bowl advisory committee about trying to set uniform dates for VHSL District and Region competition, but it was unclear to me if this was going to happen for '08-'09 or if the goal was for '09-'10.

CSI @ Cave Spring (Sometime in December??)

When I talked to Bob Powers at the NSC, Cave Spring was still settling their official date.

Note that the Reynolds tourney MAY be Delta Burke or it MAY be something else entirely. But it will almost assuredly not be NNT

If all goes according to plan (basically, if the GDS fall show isn't that weekend,) the GDS mirror of NNT will take place on November 8th. If not, we will try to run it on November 22. I know that conflicts with Auburn HS's tournament, but that's a 4 hour drive from DC and there was basically no field overlap with the DC area last year. Sunday, November 2, is a less likely possibility. More information will be available in August or September when the GDS theater program releases the dates of the fall show.

There is a potential, although many, many, many things would need to be done for this to be possible, that Rappahannock County will host a house-written tournament on some future date. Thanks George. We are 60 miles west of DC in the middle-of-nowhere, for those potentially interested.

AJ, a word of caution. HS tournaments that get run on SAT dates tend to not go over very well.

Thanks. Yeah, I remembered that that was an SAT Date at about 7:00 tonight. I have to talk to my coach about other good dates, and our new principal when he/she is appointed.

Anyone ever tried a post-SAT quiz bowl "party"? Like run a mini-tournament at 5pm for SAT "detox" purposes? Or are brains way too fried for that?

As far as good quizbowl doing this, I can't say.

But, OAC Regionals used to start at 1 PM, after the SAT finished.

Can Rappahannock County temporarily "claim" April 4 for it's inaugural tournament "The RAPPoff?" We need administrative approval still, hence its temporary status.
