2012 NAQT SCT travel exception committee

Post by Important Bird Area » Tue Jan 17, 2012 2:37 pm

NAQT's ACUI partnership page wrote:Teams will always be able to attend their "home" Sectional; they will also always have the choice of attending the closest Sectional instead, even if it is in another region. Should they want to attend a Sectional that is neither of these, a request for an exception will be considered by a committee established by NAQT and ACUI.
This committee has been formed and is now taking requests for the 2012 SCT. Its members are R. Robert Hentzel, Jeff Hoppes, and Dwight Kidder of NAQT, and Ruby Vega and Brian Magee of ACUI.

Reminders on the ground rules:

1) Attending the closest SCT site to your campus is always permitted.

2) Attending the SCT site in your ACUI region is always permitted.

3) If your team wishes to attend a different SCT site than the above, please email me with an exception request. The last day for teams to request such an exception is Wednesday, January 25th.

Does this mean that Georgia Tech will be playing in Gainesville this weekend?

Probably, depending on the state of the Division I field.

Switched because it looks like there will be a combined field in Region 6 after all.
