We are now about a month away from the tournament itself, and 2.5 weeks away from the final packet deadline. I'm going to be very upfront and say that while I wouldn't be able to travel all the way to Maryland, I really want to play this set, because it is apparently the only good quizbowl event in the month of December, and because I don't know if I'll be able to play another tournament before SCT due to Winter Break and some various other things.

Hey, is this still happening? On May 5? Is there going to be an announcement/discount schedule for packets?

Once we get to May 12, more and more teams have left school for the year or started taking final exams, making packet submission and last-minute question wrangling chatoic. After May 12, HSNCT, NSC, and NASAT all come up quickly as things that would take players out of the field. Furthermore, teams have little reason or desire to play events after both Nationals effectively end the season. Perhaps it makes sense to convert this to an early-summer open tournament, a la ANGST last year, in late June or early July. (I'd play it.) Otherwise, it's time to just admit it's time to cancel this.
