2011 New Jersey NAQT State Championship

Post by Youse Da Force » Tue Jan 18, 2011 9:41 pm

Princeton University will host this year's NAQT State Championship for the State of New Jersey. The tournament will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2011 on the Princeton Campus.

The packet is NAQT IS-105.

Fees:
$80 for the first team from a school.
$70 for each additional team
-$10 Discount per Buzzer System
-$15 per Experienced Reader/Moderator. Must have read tossup-bonus before. Note this in your email if you're interested.

Discounts will be capped at $25/team.

The last day to register without incurring a late fee will be Saturday, March 19th. There is no field cap yet, but we will temporarily waitlist teams beyond the third to leave more room for competition.

Schedule:
Registration will begin at 7:30am, followed by a meeting for all teams promptly at 8:00am. Play will begin immediately after the meeting, and late teams will forfeit matches (unless delayed by inclement weather or other acts of God.) Lunch will take place around noon, specifics to be determined according to how quickly the tournament is progressing.

Location (thus far):
The location of the tournament and available parking will be sent to coaches once they have been determined. Parking is free, and usually available close to campus.

Contact details: You can email me with registration or questions at dhumphre (at) princeton (dot) edu Or simply click the email button at the bottom of this post.

Dan,

Too remove confusion, Saint Joe's will be bringing THREE teams, 2 buzzers and 1 moderator. And, if you do not mind, could you provide a field update?

So, would all, any of you mind a NY team or two crashing your party?

There is an Upstate NY Championship at Cornell U in Ithaca (4 1/2 hours away) on a day right in the middle of our trimester exams or there is you guys at Princeton U in Princeton (1 1/2 hours away) on a good day! No-brainer for me! We promise to play fair!

Let me know. Thanks!

This is fine.

A better solution, of course, would be to find a host for a metro NYC New York state championship sometime next month. Interested volunteers should contact me as soon as possible.

Jeff,

I have no problem with Kellenberg coming to NJ to compete and to help prepare its team for NAQT Nationals in this way. I consider Brother Nigel and his kids to be wonderful friends, not only of SJHS, but of excellent competition everywhere, so Kellenberg enhances the field in every way.

But I do have a question for you if I may: Suppose Kellenberg nips Seton Hall (or fill in the blank for any other New Jersey team at the tournament) for the Championship, which team is the New Jersey NAQT State Champion? Is it Kellenberg, or is it Seton Hall, the highest placing NJ team in this hypothetical? Your quick response to Kellenberg's inquiry about participating in the NJ Championships did not address this obvious jurisdictional problem, yet to be fair to everyone involved, not only to Brother Nigel in making his request, but to all of the New Jersey schools affected by your answer, don't you think it should be? Remember, many schools depend on public success for continued school funding, so an NAQT Title can help such schools get the funding they need and which they might otherwise lose, so the question is not simply a rhetorical one and your answer can have substantive consequences. So, could you provide an NAQT answer or ruling on this question, before the tournament starts, so everyone knows & understands the rules from the outset?

Yes; I just started a new thread to discuss this so the whole country can see it without the answers being buried in individual-tournament threads.
