Can we get a field update for this? We're definitely interested in attending, if there is still room, but it would be nice to know if there would be teams there were we to attend.

John, sorry I didn't get a field update posted last week. We just changed semesters here and I haven't had much time to attend to quiz bowl matters.

The field is currently...

Cannon School
Cave Spring
Christ Church x2
Freedom x2
Greensboro Day x2
Hickory Ridge
Hoggard x2
Lincolnton
NE Guilford x2
Porter Ridge
Providence Day x2
Raleigh Charter x3
Thomasville
Thomas Jefferson Classical
Weddington x2

Now, it's looking more and more like we're going to have to postpone the tournament thanks to that b---- Mother Nature. If that happens, our makeup date is going to be March 27, and registration will be open all over again - I'll have to talk to TJ about how this would affect our mirror with them. I'm going to make a decision about this weekend on Friday around 10am.

It's fine, I understand. It's unlikely we would have been able to make it anyway. Good luck to you and everyone in the tournament!

Waiting until tomorrow morning to make this decision is pointless.

Due to some really nasty weather on the way, the Robinson Invitational is currently postponed. Our new date is March 27. The new registration form for that date can be found here:

Can we get another field update? We may be interested in fielding a team if there's still a spot.

Registration on the new date is closed, and here's what we have:

"Cobra Kings" x2
Fort Mill x2
Pikeville x2
Porter Ridge
Providence Day x2
Raleigh Charter x3
Robert Zimmerman
Thomasville

14 teams. I think we'll do two pools of seven, get everyone six games (or seven, if we do a cross-pool matchup), and take the top two from each pool for a round-robin playoff.

Now that this tournament is over, is the NAREN set cleared for discussion? Will it be posted?

That would be awesome. I'd love to finally see the set since we didn't get to play on it (well, more than 2 rounds).

We just got another mirror on 5/22, so the set isn't cleared until then. It'll be posted after that, though.

Exciting; has this mirror been announced yet? Where will it be held?
