When does NAQT decide where Sectionals will be hosted?

Expect announcements within the next two weeks or so (there are some regions with few or no bids, so we're still working on lining up more hosts).

Is there a reason that regions that have bids can't be announced now if a decision is ready?

We don't, in fact, have decisions ready to announce yet.

Not to unduly constrain NAQT and its staff (I understand this is a busy time of year, and that the logistics of site host announcements are multi-factorial and multilateral, and that some people are probably not getting back to NAQT) but could we please have a revised deadline for site announcements? Or alternatively, a general statement on how many regions remain to be determined? With respect, this tournament is now less than 3 months away.

Remaining appreciative of NAQT :wink:

No excuses. We should have announced these weeks ago. I have asked R. for an updated schedule.

Are there any specific regions that NAQT is still waiting on a bid from?

Having an SCT host in New England would be great. The host call is here.

Will there be a SCT in Region 10? I realize it's tough to get these things arranged over Christmas break, but I'm trying to make some travel plans for February and would love to know as soon as possible, so I know if I can staff or play this.
