The tournament, tentatively, will take place in person at Johns Hopkins, located at 3400 North Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218. Room locations are TBD. A map of campus can be found here: http://cis.jhu.edu/images/campus_map_0907.pdf. Parking is available at the South Garage, at a flat rate of $9 for the day. However, there is a chance the tournament will be online.

Is there any possibility for a different NAQT set to be used? Several teams from the DMV region played IS-204 at Cavalier Classic
(viewtopic.php?f=1&t=25270&p=386476) and TJ would be interested in attending if that change might be made.
