Certainly not this year, and I think not since it was introduced.

NAQT is following the advice from the Centers for Disease Controls and Prevention to cancel events involving 50 or more people through at least May 10.

We know this decision is disappointing to everyone who was looking forward to competing at the 2020 SSNCT. We hope the quiz bowl community stays safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing all of you at future NAQT events.
