The travel policy for the 2013 SCT is the same policy used in previous years, specifically:

1. Teams may always attend the SCT site nearest to their home campus.

2. Teams may always attend the SCT site in their own ACUI region (details)

3. A school may send teams to only one SCT site.

Exceptions to the above rules will be considered by NAQT and ACUI on a case-by-case basis; if your team faces an unusual travel situation not covered above, please email us (sct [at] naqt.com) with details.

Does NAQT not expect teams to register online for SCT anymore? If they do, when will the links be up for online registration?

Yes, SCT registration will take place online this year. Expect registration to be activated as soon as the last two sites are announced.

Registration for the 2013 SCT is now open. (Please note that the list of SCT sites is still not final; we expect to announce New England and Upper Midwest sites in the near future.)

I'm not sure if this is reflected in the actual registration process, but for sites which offer a travel discount, the cost appears to be +$10 for every 200 miles, rather than -$10.

The SCT set has been completed and shipped to the hosts this morning. I believe R. has been in touch with everyone via email, but if you're hosting SCT tomorrow and are having any trouble with your pdfs, please contact us immediately (sct [at] naqt.com).

I would like to thank my co-editors, Andy Watkins, Andrew Hart, and Seth Teitler, for all of the time and effort they put into this year's SCT. Special thanks to all of the writers who contributed to completing the set over the last week.

For support tomorrow (on protests or about anything else related to SCT play), hosts can contact us by phone or by email (1-888-411-6278; sct (at) naqt.com). I will also be around in #quizbowl if anyone would like to contact me there (eg, if the phone line is busy with a protest at another site).

Please do not publicly discuss specific questions from the 2013 SCT; there are a number of delayed sites (snowstorms, NAQT's Community College Championship, various high school events).

A private forum has been set up for discussion of this set. Please select "SCT 2013" from your user control panel to join.
