2012 NSC Field Expansion

Post by Blackboard Monitor Vimes »

PACE is pleased to announce that the field for the 2012 NSC has expanded to 56 teams thanks to an increase in staff. There are currently 12 teams on our waiting list. Teams remain welcome to register or, if applicable, to submit wildcard bids, as long as they are aware that each new registration joins the bottom of the waiting list.

Anyone not already signed up who is interested in staffing the PACE NSC should contact Matt Bollinger at mlb7vb at virginia dot edu for more information.

What would be the schedule for a 56-team NSC?

Also, what's the distribution this year? You posted that the final details were being worked out, but that was in August.

Will PACE consider expanding the field again, or is 56 teams it?

It is possible that the field may expand again, but this depends on available staffers, rooms, and interested teams.

The 2012 NSC field has expanded once again to 62 teams. We would like to expand a final time to 64, but we still need a few more staffers in order to make that happen. If you'd like to staff the NSC and help bring good news to a few more waitlisted teams, please email our staff contact Matt Bollinger at mlb7vb at virginia dot edu.

Good afternoon, everyone. PACE is pleased to announce that we are now able to expand the field for the 2012 NSC to 64 teams. Due to space limitation at WUStL, this will be our final expansion. However, because of an unfortunate number of drops, we currently have room for several interested teams to enter the field. We are also accepting wildcard bids from teams who have not qualified; interested parties should contact Fred Morlan at fredmorlan at gmail dot com.

Unfortunately, due to a number of drops at the payment deadline, we've had to lower the cap back to 60 teams so that we may begin solidifying format plans for the tournament.

Additionally, if anyone from Belvidere North happens to be reading this, we've been trying to reach you. Please get in touch with us ASAP. Thanks!
