WJ is interested but can't think of a witty way to express that.

By the way, does NAREN actually stand for something?

Mirrors:

We're aiming for around the difficulty of HSAPQ #9, so somewhat easier than DAFT, Prison Bowl, or HFT, but harder than last year's HSAPQ sets.

Also, are you keeping or doing away with the related bonuses? If you're keeping them, I'd recommend making the relations a little more distant than they were last year (i.e. not having a tossup on Oe followed by a bonus on three works by Oe that could have been in the tossup).

Yeah, we practiced on an old TJ set the other day and were a little annoyed at some of the related bonus answers that just got way too hard (i.e. "name these OTHER German chancellors").

2008 Prison Bowl was quite hard.

2009 Prison Bowl was still slightly more difficult than what i believe is "regular difficulty," but i didn't have a problem with it much.

I'm sure this year's set will be good.

Yeah, you're right that Prison Bowl wasn't as hard as DAFT or HFT. However, it was certainly harder than last year's HSAPQ sets, and we want to hit a mark slightly below it.

This tournament is now about six weeks away. We only have three teams signed up officially so far, so it'd be great if we could get in more registration earlier rather than later like at TJIAT.

Done. I don't think i'll be bringing multiple teams here, but i'll just keep that option open. I'll talk to kids about it to gauge interest.

I hope getting (insert awful ppb) on the DAFT set isn't causing some of the teams that typically come to TJ to skip it this time around.

Considering that i trust that this set will be written 1) with plenty of editing, 2) without two-line quotes that give you no information whatsoever, 3) not in increasing difficulty by round to the point where they are not convertible, and 4) by a team that's been doing them for years... i think we should be in for a good conversion rate.

I just hope that the other teams who don't typically do that well are aware of that as well.

Anyways I think this will be a good set to play on, and I'm pretty excited about the field.

How about a surprise guest appearance from the formidable St. Anselm's B?

So, I may be able to get together another team for this. I'll try to know for sure by the middle of the week.

Upon further consultation, my esteemed teammate Tim Yee would also like to play.

Richard Montgomery would like to unregister one team to brings us to two. (I misplaced our password so I couldn't really do it the official way, sorry)

I will probably not play, but my teammate Todd Pollack and possibly other Whitman people will play.

Weather is calling for snow on Saturday. What are your contingency plans? At what point would you postpone/cancel?

Oh, crap... yeah if it snows, like actually snows and not just flurries, i really don't think we can make it to this, considering all the back roads we have to travel on in Delaware just to get to Route 301. Or i'll just say this; my fiancee will kill me if i tell her i'm going to drive a 200-mile round trip during the snow.

Let us know about plans to postpone, if possible.

We'll lose our hotel money anyway, so we're coming unless I-95 is closed. Damn the torpedoes!
