If a moderator could make the list the first message and archive the 2019-2020 thread that would be greatly appreciated.

I archived the 2019-20 date claim and made this one sticky.

I don't think forum admins have the power to adjust the order of posts within a thread (but would welcome a correction from the other forum staff if we do!)

Cave Spring High School would like to tentatively schedule November 21st for our CSI and February 20th for our NCIS tournaments. It'll be the first time for these tournaments in our new school (hopefully). We are probably going to use NAQT sets for both tournaments this year. We will hold our Roanoke Classic in March or April when we get some information back from our usual participants. I'll reserve that date later when I get more information on that.

TJ and CS have traditionally run tournaments on the same day, and considering that TJ is over 4 hours away from CS this has not been an issue historically, so there's no need to worry about this, Samir.

Just checking, May 5th 2021 is a Wednesday. Did you mean June 5th or a different date?

I would like to tentatively claim January 16 for my mirror of ERIS. This is to be hosted independent of my affiliation, given the ongoing pandemic. This tournament will also be hosted online given the state of the world unless things change in the next few months.

I will, however, be restricting the mirror to teams in Virginia and teams in NC, TN or WV within a 3 hour drive, per Google maps, of Salem, Virginia, unless they specifically appeal to me. Virginia teams are not held to the 3 hour drive rule.

I was a bit slow in realizing this - since ACF Winter is on 11/7, please change our date for Cavalier Classic to 11/14.
