it's okay if no but I just thought I would ask

This is very much not standard practice for high school tournaments where local staffers are available, and asking this (and thus cluttering a tournament thread where clarity is paramount) as an officer in a major quizbowl organization really isn't a great look.

...because I totally come from someplace that is awash in money, this whole East Tennessee thing. :)

that said: the point is VERY well taken. has anybody figured out that I stumbled into this whole officer role yet?

(seriously: thanks, Jakob, you are quite right here.)

UPDATE: Our tournament has been designated as a gold qualifier for PACE NSC. This means that in addition to HSNCT qualification, competitors who finish in the top 20% of the high school division will qualify for the PACE national championship.
