LOGISTICS (added January 31): Registration will be in room 6-120 starting at 8:30 AM. Please arrive by 9:00 AM; we will aim to start games by 9:15 AM. If we require 9 or fewer game rooms, they will all be in Building 2 of MIT's main campus. Any additional rooms we may need will be in the adjacent Building 4. Unfortunately, the hallway connecting Buildings 2 and 4 is currently closed for construction, so moving between them requires either going outside or taking a detour through Buildings 6 and 8. However, we should have more than enough rooms to house one division in each building, so no switching at all should be necessary between rounds.
The full fee and discount schedule is as follows:
First team: $120 each
Subsequent teams: $100 each
Buzzer systems: $10 discount each
Clocks: $5 discount each
First moderator: $75* discount per qualified moderator; please tell us as soon as possible whether you will be taking advantage of this discount
Subsequent moderators: $60 each
New school: $20 discount for any team from a school that has neither competed in nor hosted an SCT in the past two years
*Jeff has informed me that NAQT's registration system only accommodates a single level of moderator discount, so your discount will go into the system as a $60 discount, and we will reimburse you with $15 in cash on the day of the tournament. In the event that any other features of our (somewhat unusual) price schedule are incompatible with NAQT's system, we'll resolve the differences in cash too.
The minimum fee for any given team is the question fee for that team, as outlined on the NAQT website:
Please note that the moderator discount brings you to either exactly this question fee or $5 above it. Therefore, bringing a buzzer in addition to a moderator gets you only a $5 discount.http://www.naqt.com/sct/2013/host-requirements.html wrote: The cost of the questions is $40 for the first team from a school and $35 for each subsequent team. Other than this per-team licensing fee, there is no other fee to be paid to NAQT to host a Sectional. Teams that qualify for the "new school" discount cost only $25 for the first team and $20 for each subsequent team.
You can register for the SCT here. We hope to see you on February 16!
