Nationals Qualification: The top 15% of the field will qualify for NAQT's HSNCT. The top 30% of small schools will qualify for NAQT's SSNCT. This tournament is a PACE Gold qualifier, so the top 20% of schools will qualify for NSC.

-Buzzer system: -$10 each

Minimum fee per team: $40. Buzzers must be completely functional with at least 8 signaling devices to receive discount; moderators should be experienced.

Schedule: Day-of registration will be from 8:30 to 9:00 am, with round 1 starting by 9:30. Number of rounds and playoff/finals format will be determined by the field size. Logistical information will be provided to registered teams.
