Are schools able to travel to in-person events? I'm not even sure how to reach people at this point!

I just got permission to host an in-person tournament (masks required). If we set this up, will anyone come? I'm in Marlborough, MA.

I'd love to bring my kids to some real events! Let's see what we can make happen!

I'm not confident in my technical abilities enough to try to host an online tournament.

Also, I have quite a few middle schoolers this year and would love to see a little action for them too. Anyone interested in attending or hosting a MS event?

I've been considering running an online middle school tournament this year, maybe I'll do that in January or February? Otherwise I have a pretty decent email list to this point of quiz bowl, quiz show, and related teams I can send over to you. I know New Hampshire's league is back to in person so there must be at least some teams in the Greater Boston Area able to travel

Also, I have gotten approval for my Northern Maine Invitational Tournament at Waterville Senior High School on February 5th. It's a bit of a hike for Boston teams but if y'all want to come up to my neck of the woods we'd be happy to have you.

Hi! Belmont High School and Chenery Middle School would both be interested if you hosted AMSA events in-person (or virtually as well!) Chenery would also definitely be interested in attending middle school / high school novice events. Belmont is planning on running BAIT this year, although we haven't decided on a date and whether it will be in person or virtual. Chenery may also hold a virtual tournament this year, possibly on CERES.

I think Staples would be interested in attending a HS event at AMSA.
