2008 NAQT Sectional Announcements

Post by rhentzel »

This is just a reminder that tomorrow (Saturday, February 2) is the last day for players to request eligibility exceptions for the 2008 NAQT Sectional Championships.

If you have a question about your (or a teammate's) eligibility, please send us a summary (at [email protected]) by 23:59:59 tomorrow so we can review the situation and issue a ruling.

Players are, of course, welcome to request clarifications at any point, but NAQT will not be granting exceptions to players deemed ineligible unless the request is submitted before the end of 2/2/2008.

The NAQT collegiate eligibility rules may be found here:

Question set overlap

Post by rhentzel »

As Matt Bruce previously announced, unlike in past years, the DII Sectional Championship Set will NOT share questions with one of NAQT's Invitational Series.

However, NAQT will be offering the DII Sectionals set to hosts that want to run end-of-year, regional, high school tournaments for nationals-caliber teams. Phil Blessman's Midwest Championship is already planning to use the set for that purpose.

So, high schoolers who may be interested in competing in such a tournament (if one will be held in their area), may still want to avoid assisting at SCTs where they will be exposed to the questions.

The DI and DII sets will continue to share questions, some in their exact form, others with modifications to make them easier for Division II.

I think this is a great idea, and certainly preferable to the previous set-up. Hopefully it will be successful this year so it can continue.
