NAQT Collegiate Novice 2017-18

Post by Important Bird Area » Fri Aug 04, 2017 9:03 pm

NAQT is pleased to announce our 2017-18 Collegiate Novice set. Collegiate Novice set #168C is a 12-packet set intended for college tournaments catering to newer and more casual players. The set will be available for hosting starting the weekend of Saturday, September 9, 2017.

Please note that this set is derived from NAQT Invitational Series #168; for that reason, high school teams and their coaches are not allowed to play or staff events using our Collegiate Novice Series.

As with NAQT’s other regular-season tournaments, hosts will be able to set their own eligibility rules, though NAQT is happy to advise on appropriate guidelines.

Unlike previous years, we are producing only a single set of Collegiate Novice questions in 2017-18. This year's set will be slightly easier than our Division II Sectional Championship set.

Teams interested in hosting using NAQT's Collegiate Novice Series should contact us at hosting@naqt.com. More details about hosting are available here.

This was a decent but not perfect set.

Is there a medium here for discussing the set or should we send all concerns through to NAQT by email?

Please send us email with concerns about this set (it will not have a private forum, since there are many more high school tournaments using the shared questions in IS #168).
