Cancelling 2014 App State Tournament in Winston Salem
« on: September 11, 2014, 11:43:07 AM »
We lost the high school for App State. We decided that it was better to cancel now while folks still had time to adjust their travel schedules rather than scrambling to try for another location and have to cancel later. We are hoping to secure another location for future years. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi, everyone!  With App. St. being cancelled, I’ve gotten a couple of inquiries about the possibility of WVU hosting that weekend (November 14-16, opposite Wake).  I’m still checking on classroom and hotel availability (should know by Monday), but I want to see if there is actual demand.  We would offer a Friday-Sunday tournament, beginning at around 4:30 or 5:00 pm on Friday.  It wouldn’t be our usual zero entry fees, but they’d be lower than the norm (maybe a lot lower, with fewer meals; we’ll see).  We’d offer 3 divisions, assuming there is enough Open demand.
We’d like to gauge interest and see how that matches up with classroom availability.  If you think you’d be interested, please let me know.  If you know you’re not interested, please let me know.  Also, please let me know if either of the following non-sweepstakes-valuable formats might interest you:
1.    One big division, 6 rounds, with outrounds up to Doubles (I guess that might not be non-sweepstakes-valuable to some);  JV and Novice breakouts starting at Semis.
2.   7 rounds for all:  2 on Friday evening, 3 on Saturday, followed by bowling, 2 on Sunday, with everyone on the road at 2 pm (no outrounds; awards based on prelims).
In the absence of one of those, we’d offer 2 rounds on Friday, 4 on Saturday (plus Doubles if necessary/bowling as well), and remaining outrounds on Sunday.
