Comet Winter Clash 2019
Solon High School will be hosting our annual two day tournament on February 16-17 2019. We have renamed the event the Comet Winter Clash, but the basics (with a few changes) remain the same!

High School Tournament on NAQT IS 183
Middle School Tournament on NAQT MS 28

We will concurrently run the Solon Middle School Tournament on NAQT MS 28. Greenfield McClain High School is also running this set in March. This will be played with standard NAQT scoring, untimed 20 question matches. 8 matches will be guaranteed per team.

After Saturday’s finals, we will play a free TRASH tournament, open to players, coaches, adults, etc. This will be run on Solon Trash 4, with 4-5 packets of 20TU/20B. Unlike past years, we are requiring ahead-of-time sign-ups for this event so that we can create an appropriate schedule.

I'll have to check availability, but as in previous years, we'll probably be at least 1 of the days. I'm planning on putting together a trash team as well, most likely with my typical teammates although that could change. I'll let you know once I talk to our kids.

Sounds good. Let me know when you pin down your group.

As far as the trash goes, our group this year is a little more ambitious, wanting to write 5 full packets. So, hopefully that will be pretty substantive...
