There is a discount for bringing moderators, and we’d appreciate if teams could bring as many moderators as they can. Our team is rather young and does not have a large base of alumni to use as moderators.Costs:
$70 for the first team;
$60 for each additional team;
-$10 for each buzzer system;
-$15 for each moderator.
Minimum payment of $40 per team
Payment with cash or checks will be accepted. Checks should be made payable to “SUFSD”. Registration costs will be collected on the day of the tournament.Field Cap:
As this is our first time running NAQT states, the tournament will currently be capped at 18 teams. Should we find enough qualified volunteers, or if enough teams bring moderators, we will raise the cap. Tournament Structure:
The tournament will be using NAQT packet IS-116, with untimed 20/20 rounds. We hope to guarantee either 8 or 10 rounds depending on the number of teams competing. We will use an either 5- or 6- team round robin structure in the morning. This will be followed by lunch and subsequently another round robin format with re-seeding based on the results off the morning’s round robin.
This tournament will be an opportunity to qualify for the NAQT High School National Championship Tournament, which will be held on May 26-27 in Atlanta, Georgia. A guaranteed berth will be awarded to the top team that has not already qualified for HSNCT.Arrival:
