Names for the competition
« on: July 14, 2016, 03:17:28 PM »
Avoid clash of names with existing competitions in NE. For examples
Beantown Blitz
BattleCry
Summer Heat
Bash at the Beach
River Rage
Battle of the Bay
Mayhem in Merrimack

Keep the names clean, positive, fun and topical (once we have a better feel for a "topic")

Veronica suggested Bewitched Baystate today as another name that we might want to use.

Other things to keep in consideration when suggesting names:
  • Avoid committing to a certain date; in the future, we may change around the date of the competition so we do not necessarily want to commit to a Halloween-related name.
  • Avoid mentioning the school or the town's name; keep it general, as we might move the competition to Shrewsbury, Northborough, etc. depending on our needs as a team.

The verdict is in. The official name is.

Bay State Brawl
BSB
(when abbreviating)

Let's be consistent with the spelling and capitalization. I looked online at some options and there's no concensus; so we'll make our own. Let's do this (1) a space between "Bay" and "state", (2) uppercase the first letter of each word.

When abbreviated, use "BSB". For those wondering why, "BB" and "BTB" can  both refer to Beantown Blitz so making it 3 separate words makes it unambiguously when abbreviated to BSB.
