Anything that's on topic but doesn't fit elsewhere, including related events that might be of interest to quizbowl players (KMO, Science Bowl, etc).

A note about announcing NAQT tournaments

Post by Important Bird Area » Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:41 am

(Please note that this isn't directed at any particular program or poster. We've seen a number of these lately, so we wanted to post this clarification.)

Would your school like to host a tournament using NAQT questions? Excellent news! Please email NAQT (hosting@naqt.com) to reserve a packet set and get confirmation from us before posting an announcement on the forums. It's more convenient for everyone if we can identify the particular set in use as soon as the announcement goes up (rather than, for instance, having to warn teams of set conflicts after they have already expressed interest in tournaments).

Thanks!

This is just a reminder, as it is now tournament-planning season again: please email NAQT to reserve sets for the 2014-15 season.

In related news: please contact NAQT if you wish to change the date of your tournament. If your tournament is earlier in the year than originally planned, we may or may not be able to supply you with questions.

Bumping this post as a reminder to everyone about NAQT announcements as we prepare for the 2016-17 competition year.

(NAQT is now taking hosting information for 2016-17 tournaments; contact hosting@naqt.com and expect to hear from Chad about packet availability by early June. For obvious reasons we are unable to resolve all of these this week.)
