Princeton High School will be hosting an NAQT tournament on March 3rd using the IS 171 A set.

The tournament will have a hard cap of 24 teams. Registration will be done through this form: https://goo.gl/forms/C9b423ReIgoGJmq22, (the form is now fixed). Please email me at montyjames30@gmail.com if you have any questions.

The game format will be according to NAQT rules, with the untimed rounds of 10 tossup-bonuses per half, no computational math questions, and 5 seconds to answer after buzzing on a tossup, to buzz in after a tossup, and to confer on a bonus.

The fees are as follows:
Price of first team: $75
Price of subsequent team from the same school: $65
Discount for buzzers: -$10
Discount for moderator : -$15
Minimum fee per team: $45

Payments are preferred in cash. Email me if you plan to pay in check, i will provide you the details.

The school's address is 151 Moore Street, Princeton NJ, 08540. Registration will start at 8:15 and the first rounds will begin at 9:00. The tournament structure will be determined once we have a definite number of teams. Lunch will only be provided for moderators, teams will have to go into town for lunch; the school is within 5-10 minutes walking distance to many restaurants and eateries, such as Hoagie Haven, Slice Between, Panera Bread, Olives, Mamoun's, and Chuck's.

Hope to see you at the tournament!

Thanks to Princeton High School and especially Monty for a well-done tournament. It was great to help the local circuit, and hopefully some of us at Princeton University can help at more local HS and MS events in the future. Nice to see some new schools made it today, too. Hope to see some familiar faces at NAQT states at Rutgers!
