Also...PACE (the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence) has awarded your tournament, KPAQT VII, platinum certification. This means that the top 25% of teams in your tournament (rounded up to the nearest integer) will qualify for our national high school quizbowl championship, the PACE NSC on the weekend of June 10th-11th at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare outside of Chicago.

I think we (Middlesex County Academy) is listed twice because we made changes to the registration. As of now, we are bringing 2 teams, 2 buzzers, 0 mods.
Thanks!

Hi, I'm from the Bard High School team in NYC. Unfortunately, the LIRR has stopped running the early train between Atlantic Terminal and Jamaica, meaning that all of our members would have to take the 5:51 out of Penn Station. This means that some of our members would have to wake up at 3:45 AM to travel to the station. Is it possible to take the next LIRR train to Kings Park, which gets in at 8:56 AM? I know this would mean we'd probably miss the first round, but are you able to accommodate this? If not, we totally understand, and we will try to plan accordingly.

Best,

BHSECM/Q
