I thought overall it was a nice tournament. According to an NAQT official the top 8 will go to nationals.

From what I heard at the tournament, I think only the top four will be qualifying. Mr. Bellas or Dwight would be able to confirm this.

I remember Mr. Bellas tellings the teams in the semifinals that they had qualified for Nationals. I'm not the person who would know the answer to this. Mr. Bellas will probably post or send an e-mail out to all the teams sometime soon.

Do you know if Tippacanoe intends on coming to our tournament in Kentucky?

Sorry, but we won't be able to come. Although we would love to return the favor by visiting scenic Kentucky, we are already committed to Michigan State's Rube Invitational on that same weekend. Plus, I am scheduled to read for their event, since they were so gracious to provide a reader for mine (high-quality, I might add). :D

When I spoke to Dwight, he specifically told me that the TOP %15 of teams in attendance would qualify. Because we had 40 teams, that constitutes six teams as qualifiers. However, we did not have a playoff to distinguish places 5-8, so in this case, all teams that lost in the first round are considered tied for fifth. Since I do not serve on NAQT's board of directors, I cannot speak for their decision in this matter. On a practical level, I would imagine that they may extend invitations to all eight quarterfinal teams, only because they may be shooting for as many teams as possible (of high quality, of course) to attend their national championships.

I'm glad you enjoyed the tournament. We at Tippecanoe enjoyed having you come up and visit. Hopefully, we'll see even more Kentuckians next year.

Generally, Dwight likes to have as many teams qualify as possible. He'll consider the quarterfinalists tied and invite them all.
