To register for this tournament, send an email
NAQT's online registration system will be activated for SCT in the near future. I'll post a note in the main SCT announcement thread when that happens.

I'd like to clarify this point. From what I understand, Andrew Hart's involvement with SCT means that Minnesota will get one DI autobid. What does this mean regarding Minnesota being able to play DI teams at this SCT site?

Sorry Jeff, I mechanically threw that in there without giving it thought. I edited the original post.

Hey, I'd like to have this point clarified before registering. Are we (Minnesota) allowed to still have a DI team even though Andrew Hart is editing this and we have, as far as I know, received a DI autobid already? Are we eligible to win? Are there any restrictions as to our roster as per ICT?

Minnesota is free to enter any number of teams (that don't include Andrew Hart) in either division and is eligible to win.

Thanks for clarifying.

Also, I began to register our DII teams, but got interrupted and when I attempted to return, it now says I am not eligible to register or edit teams. Can the TD or someone clear that registration so someone can begin anew? (While that is going on, in the interest of clarification, Minnesota should have 1 DI and 3-4 DII teams at this event)

I just cleared the DII registration, so please re-register as convenient.
