Does NAQT find any of the survey results significant?

From NAQT's website, it seems that a dozen or so tournaments every year use sets from previous years at locations that havn't yet heard them. I suppose this option wouldn't be available if all questions prior to the current year were available online. Just another thing to think about.

With 24 teams- the tournament format will be 4 prelim pools of 6 (5 games) followed by 3 playoff pools of 8 where a team plays all the teams in their pool they have not yet played (6 games)? If so, and you only have 11 packets, what will happen if there is a tie for first after these 11 games?

Also, I can understand being a little more rhetorical because you want people in your area to play quizbowl, but some of the things you say about "good/modern" quizbowl aren't necessarily facts about what quizbowl is, but more of a specific set of beliefs about what you think quizbowl should be.
