I can offer a little history on this.  Previously the tournaments were 

held in Blacksburg.  Because of weather we had to move the state 

tournament to January.  That made it more difficult because you have 

teams from all over Virginia going up into the mountains during the
unpredictable winter months.

It was scary being responsible for cars of students when the roads were 

still icy.  James Madison is a little bit of a better location as it is 

not in as high an elevation as Blacksburg, but the teams from the east 

must still cross Afton Mountain, in the winter, to get there.


The other thing is many of us have other activities that we do with 

students that start up in January ( TSA, OM, and in tidewater we have 

Great Computer Challenge ).
