Registration is now open for the twelve SCTs with confirmed sites here. I hope to have updates on the additional New England, Central, and Pacific Northwest sites in the near future.

Any update on the New England/Northeast site? I know Columbia _could_ host if our hand is forced, but we wouldn't be able to contribute very many house staffers.

Brown will host the New England SCT.

I'll post an update on the Northwest site as soon as we are able to confirm room reservations.

What's the rule on schools attending two sites? I can't seem to find the page that used to address this.

Teams are welcome to attend multiple SCT sites if they so choose (the usual cases involve combined fields and/or players enrolled in some kind of distance-education classes).

The Pacific Northwest site of SCT has been canceled due to lack of interest.

So the Canadian site is 6 teams per division, 2RR and 4/2 split. Why do records not carry over for the playoff round robin? Our tournament record is being decided on THREE games?!?!?

Records do, in fact, carry over in that setup (and we have notified the td at Waterloo accordingly). Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Please note that the SCT set will be used for future tournaments, including NAQT's community college championship and a number of spring high school events. For question-specific discussion, please select "2016 SCT discussion" from your user control panel.
