Great tournament! Thanks a lot! (I was that kid who asked for the packet during his BYE in round 2 from Moorestown C)



P.S. Do you think Moorestown Friends A could realistically obtain a wildcard spot in nationals with their sixth place finish? Keep in mind this is our "frist" year.

EDIT: Grammar fail and quirky pun

Hey! Thanks.

I really couldn't speak as to wildcard bids. I'm not affiliated with NAQT, and I don't really know how they pick those. You guys would be better off emailing them/checking naqt.com.

Wow, that grammar erroris nasty. I usually admonish people who make mistakes like that. I'll change it when I get home - I'm on the road now accessing this from my phone.

Dan, you guys ran a good tournament. Really the only delay was with the buzzer systems in my room at the start of the playoffs, and I still have no idea how that happened.

Great final between two very deserving teams. St Joe's trailed by more than a hundred at one point, and powered the last three questions to take the win. Bergen was a very strong second. Both teams have a chance to do good things at nationals.

Maybe. Email us at hsnct@naqt.com with details of the tournaments you've attended. It will help your case if you have beaten teams that have already qualified for HSNCT.

I should note that the Team Standings ranking by win percentage does not depict the final team rankings. Places 1-8 were decided solely within the Dragon and Salamander brackets, 9-12 in Rat, 13-16 in Phoenix, and 17-20 in Griffin. I've included a more complete ranking in my OP.
