2019 NAQT Great Lakes SCT at Michigan (9 Feb 2019)

Post by CPiGuy » Tue Dec 18, 2018 5:56 pm

The University of Michigan quizbowl team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the NAQT Great Lakes Sectional Championship Tournament on Saturday, February 9, 2019. As is usual for Michigan tournaments, it will take place in Mason Hall and begin at 9:00 AM, with registration beginning at 8:15 AM. The tournament will be co-directed by me and Nick Guilfoyle.

Question Set and Eligibility

This tournament will have two divisions, which will be played on their corresponding SCT sets. These will use rounds of 22 tossups and 22 bonuses, and will be untimed.

Eligibility rules can be found at NAQT's website. In short, players are eligible for Division 2 as long as they have not either played ICT or played on a team that qualified for ICT. All players on a team must be Division 2 eligible in order for the team to play in Division 2.

Format and Rules

The tournament will use NAQT's rules. It will likely be run using one of NAQT's approved SCT formats. More details on the format will be explained once the field is finalized.

Fees and Payment

+135: the first team (in either division)
+110: each team after the first (in either division)
-10: per buzzer system.
-20: new program discount* per team.
-40: per staffer. If you are planning on bringing staffers, please email me with the staffers' contact information so I can include them on staffing emails.

*A program is considered new if no team from its school competed in an SCT, CC SCT, ICT, or CCCT in either of the two previous full competition years.


Register at NAQT's website.

Registration closes 1 week before the tournament.
