First AG tournament of the year, September 23 @ Clague

The first Saturday tournament is tomorrow at Clague. Students need to be at Clague no later than 8:30 am.  They will have about an hour to practice as we set up the tournament before they will be asked to leave the cafeteria so we can complete the setup.  Play will begin around 10 am and the students will play three rounds (35 minutes) of Equations against other students from Ann Arbor, Northville, Utica, Jackson, and Oxford.  The tournament will end and students will be dismissed between 12 and 12:15.

We encourage all students to attend the tournament, even if they are beginners.  We try to group students in their matches by experience level, so hopefully no student will be too out of their depth.  Students should bring pencil paper, and their AG notebook.

Good Luck to all!

New Academic Games Year

A new year of Academic Games is underway at Clague.  If you know someone who is a Clague student and might be interested in Academic Games, encourage them to join us at a practice!  September is the best time to join the team as we will be learning our first game -- Equations -- and can we bring anyone who is new to Academic Games up to speed.
We had our practice Friday for returning players which included voting for captains.  Captains are students -- usually 8th graders -- who lead the team.
The votes are currently being counted, miscounted, and recounted
and we look forward to introducing the captains for the 2017-18 Clague Academic Games team.
