Date: April 29, 2017
Time: Registration will open at 7:45, and the moderator meeting will be at 8:45. You must arrive by 8:30.
Packet: NAQT DII ICT - Please note that this packet is more difficult than IS sets, and that this tournament is largely intended to be in preparation for nationals (HSNCT or PACE NSC).

Location: East Brunswick High School (380 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, NJ)
Format: Currently the field cap is set at 24 teams, which will be expanded if necessary.
Teams will be divided into 4 brackets of 6 teams each who will play 5 rounds of prelims in the morning. In the afternoon, playoffs will be 6 ranked brackets of 4 teams each. These 6 brackets will consist of 3 pairs of 2 equally ranked brackets. After the 3 playoff rounds, teams will play one more round against the equally ranked team in the opposite bracket. The top two teams in each of the top two brackets will play a semifinals and a finals.
For now, there is a max 3 teams per school limit, but it is possible that we might increase this if the field is expanded. Additional teams will be put on a waitlist.
Rules: As this tournament is only a few weeks before HSNCT, we will follow all standard NAQT Rules. For timing, however, we will use 12 minute halves, as opposed to the 9 minute halves at HSNCT, to account for the difficulty of this set. There are no computational math tossups or bonuses in this set.
Lunch: If you wish to order pizza, there is a field in the registration form to order. There is also a Chipotle, Halal Guys, Sarku Japan, Smashburger, and Musclemaker Grill for all you buff players all within a walking distance from the school, as well as many nearby fast food options on Route 18.
