I am pleased to announce that Carleton College will be hosting our annual high school tournament, SnowCAT, on Saturday, January 27th, 2018 in scenic Northfield, Minnesota! We will likely hold this tournament in Olin Hall and the Language and Dining Center (LDC), although that won't be finalized until room reservations open up for next term.
Here is the fee structure for our tournament:
Base fee: $90 per team
-$10 for a working quiz bowl buzzer system
-$10 per each moderator provided
-$50 for teams new to quiz bowl (MN Knowledge Bowl does not count — if you have only played Knowledge Bowl before you will still receive this discount)
-$10 for traveling over 100 miles to reach the tournament
If, for whatever reason, you can't pay this, email me at the address below and we can renegotiate a lower fee.
Nationals Qualification: The top 15% of schools will qualify for NAQT's HSNCT, to be held over Memorial Day weekend in Atlanta.
We are Gold certified by PACE, meaning the top 20% of the field should qualify for their NSC, to be held June 2-3 near Washington DC.
We are currently instituting a cap of 18 teams, but will likely be able to expand that to at least 24 once we have a better idea of our staffer situation. In addition, there will also be a cap of 4 teams registered per school, with additional teams being placed on a wait list. Again, we anticipate being able to accept more teams.
Teams can register at any point up until January 19th through NAQT's website at this URL: https://www.naqt.com/registration/field ... nt_id=8420
Payment: We cannot and will not accept money orders, paypal, or credit cards. If you need an invoice, please email me. Checks should be made out to "Carleton Academic Quiz Team"
Lunch: There are many good options along Division St. and Rt. 3, both a short walk from campus.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at koppelbATcarletonDOTedu.
Good luck in your seasons, and we look forward to seeing you in January!
