The game format will be according to NAQT rules, with the untimed rounds of 10 tossup-bonuses per half, no computational math questions, and 5 seconds to answer after buzzing on a tossup, to buzz in after a tossup, and to confer on a bonus.

The tournament structure will be determined once we have a definite number of teams. Lunch will only be provided for moderators, teams will have to go into town for lunch; the school is within 5-10 minutes walking distance to many restaurants and eateries, such as Hoagie Haven, Slice Between, Panera Bread, Olives, Mamoun's, and Chuck's.

Hope to see you at the tournament!

Thanks to Princeton High School and especially Monty for a well-done tournament. It was great to help the local circuit, and hopefully some of us at Princeton University can help at more local HS and MS events in the future. Nice to see some new schools made it today, too. Hope to see some familiar faces at NAQT states at Rutgers!
