Northwestern University's quizbowl team will be hosting the Midwest site of the 2018 NAQT SCT. The tournament will take place on February 3, 2018, on Northwestern's Evanston campus. I'll be serving as tournament director, and we'd love to see you there!
Location and parking: The tourney will almost certainly take place in the shiny, new-ish Kresge Hall, found at 1880 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL. The parking structure at 1 Arts Circle Drive is a matter of feet from Kresge and is your best bet--it does not require a permit on Saturdays.
The fee structure is as follows:
$125 per team base fee
-$25/each for every team registered beyond the first.
-$10/each for buzzer systems with 8 or more functioning buzzers. If it doesn't have 8 working, it doesn't get you a discount.
-$30/each for competent staffers provided.
-$30 for any team from a school that did not send a team to SCT, ICT, or CCCT in 2016 or 2017.
All teams must pay on the day of the tournament. We accept cash or checks (made out to "Northwestern University"). If it's much more convenient for you to mail a check in advance, send us an email and we'll work something out.
Eligibility: This tournament will be held in two divisions, which will use different question sets. To determine which division your team is eligible to play in, see NAQT's Division II policy
Registration: Registration is centralized for SCTs, so you'll want to follow this link
to the NAQT registration page.

We hope to see you there!
