Hi, I have a couple of questions:

1. Is this tournament open to all schools, or is it limited to a certain region? 2

2. What's the rules on cameras during this tournament?

3. Is this tournament a qualifier for HSNCT or PACE?

We anticipate PACE qualification, as we meet all requirements.
There will be no geographic restrictions, and cameras are required for all players for the duration of the tournament.

A few questions:

- Are the beginning and end times in Eastern time or another timezone?
- How many rounds is the tournament expected to be?
- Would it be possible to pay by check with an invoice?
- What would be the responsibilities of a contact person? Would they have to be present in Discord rooms for the entirety of the tournament, just there for an introduction, or only to contact for payments/in case of emergency?

Yes, the beginning and end times are in Eastern standard. All teams will be guaranteed 9 rounds of playing, and a 10th round if they qualify for finals.
Payment by check and with an invoice is available, please contact us at [email protected] .
The contact person will only be contacted for payment info and in case of an emergency.

Just as a suggestion, I recommend you keep the field update outside of the first post, because as a new account, when you edit a post, it goes away until it's approved. And if you're editing the first post, the entire thread goes away until a mod approves the post.
