High School Quiz Show has announced that October 20, 2019 will be Super Sunday this year. This will undoubtedly affect the participation of Massachusetts teams even if it's tangentially related to quiz bowl.

The Long Island Quiz Bowl Alliance, in affiliation with the Greater New York Quiz Bowl Alliance, is claiming October 19, February 1, and May 9, subject to change, for a series of tournaments to be announced in early July. All three will take place in Suffolk County, NY.

Joe,
I will list these here until NY/NJ/PA/DEL gets a 19-20 date page up and running. At that point, can you submit it to them to keep it consistent with the other regional spots? I don't mind putting it up in the NE forum right now, but it gets a bit cluttered if we don't stick to NE events.

CMFT will take place on November 23, NAQT set 189A.

Thanks for setting this up Troy.

We'd also like to tentatively claim Feb 29 for a middle school tournament. I'd really like to continue to work to grow the middle school circuit in New England and encourage high school programs to reach out to their feeder school and start something - even if it's just a small week long program during the Feb break culminating in the Feb 29th tournament.

Looking forward to 2019-2020 Quiz Bowl!

Sorry for the late response guys.

We talked about taking the same date as last year for ABWIT, so I'm gonna throw up a (tentative!) claim for January 4, 2020. We'll probably run it on an IS set.

Lexington would like to claim Feb. 15 for LVMIT (mirroring LOGIC), and April 11 for ATHENA (a modified IS set, just like ATHENA I in 2016). Thanks!

We've decided to change the date for LVMIT to March 7, since our original date falls on our school vacation week.

Sorry! Have been quite busy with senior year things recently. The request is tentative in that my tournament request has not yet been approved by NAQT (i.e. it is in the "review process"), but we still very much intend to host a tournament on this date.

Hey Vincent,
I am assuming that you are still planning to use IS188? The last time I checked with NAQT they said that would likely be the set.
