Rules
All players, coaches, and spectators must follow the AQBL Code of Conduct.

Players must keep their cameras on unless a written request for an exception is approved. Gameplay will follow NAQT rules with the following modifications:
• Rounds will be untimed and consist of twenty tossup-bonus cycles
• Players will receive 7 seconds after buzzing in, after being prompted, and after the tossup ends
• Tied games will be broken by reading tossups until the first score change
• Protests to overturn a first-sentence neg on the grounds that the clues leading up to the buzz didn't uniquely specify an answer will be treated as if the buzz was at the end of the first sentence

The tournament will start at 9am eastern and end at approximately 6pm eastern.

Registration

Register here: Online Registration Form

The field is tentatively capped at 24 teams, but this may increase. Teams that register after the field fills will be placed on a waitlist. Teams that drop out after 9am eastern on Wednesday, April 21st (i.e. 72 hours before the tournament begins) are liable for the entire entry fee.

Payment

The registration fee is $80 per team by PayPal or Venmo. Let me know if you need to use another payment method.

Moderating

Moderators will be paid $30 and can register here: Moderator Registration Form

What time is this tournament starting? Here it says it's at 10 but your email says at 11. Either way, I don't understand why it's not starting earlier (9 or 9:30 at the latest, which seem much more normal). I'm not great at wrapping my head around the scheduling possibilities, but it seems like this tournament is going to be at least 9 rounds (and I think it would be better with more, but again I'm not always great about understanding the options). Your proposed 11-6 timeframe in the email, including an opening meeting, lunch break, and rebracketing, is definitely not feasible. I'd like to know what format this tournament is going to be using or when we can expect a schedule?

Secondly, there is only 1 team registered from Virginia. I sent you an email saying this on Monday, less than 24 hours after I mistakenly registered a second team on Sunday night.
