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.

Registration

Register at NAQT's website.

Registration closes 1 week before the tournament.

You can pay by cash or by check made out to "Michigan Academic Competitions". If you require an invoice in order to pay on the day of the tournament, let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to facilitate it. We expect payment the day of the tournament; if that is not possible please let us know as soon as possible.

This is not a "side event" by any means, but I'll be staffing this and will have a film packet that only some folks in Missouri will have seen if people are interested in playing that afterwards.

Two things:

-- A reminder that the deadline to register for this tournament is in less than a week!

-- Michigan will probably host an open practice at 8pm the Friday night before the tournament in Mason Hall. More details to come later, but anyone coming to the tournament who happens to be in Ann Arbor then is welcome to come.

This tournament happened -- thanks for everyone who came out for it, whether to play or staff!

In Division 1, Michigan State A won both the undergraduate and overall titles by defeating Ohio State in two games of an advantaged final.

Notre Dame B cleared the field by two games in Division 2.

Congratulations to the winners! Stats will be posted on HSQB and sent to NAQT within the next 24 hours.

First and foremost, I would like to thank NAQT for writing a very well-written and enjoyable SCT set and UM and all the staffers for hosting a very well-run and well-staffed tournament.

I am not sure how relevant this is, but there is an error on the NAQT stats where round 9 is labeled as a playoff game when it was actually a part of the prelims (see here). Again, this probably is not a big deal, but I figured I would point it out anyway.


Again, thanks to all parties involved in a great SCT Saturday.
