Post by dni »

I am pleased to announce that Cornell Quiz Bowl will host the New York site of the 2022 NAQT Sectional Championship Tournament on Saturday, February 5th, 2022. This tournament will take place online using Discord and buzzin.live, with games beginning at 9:00 AM ET. Nathan Zhang will be serving as tournament director.

Registration

This tournament will use NAQT's online registration system. Teams may register here: https://www.naqt.com/registration/field ... t_id=13165

Fees

$145 base fee for the first team from a school; $120 for second or subsequent teams
$-40 per experienced moderator
$-20 per team for schools new to quizbowl (neither competed in nor hosted SCT, CC SCT, ICT, or CCCT in 2020 or 2021)

Teams should pay via Venmo to @Nathan-Zhang-18. Payment will be due by check-in on February 5th. If you require an alternate means of payment and/or an invoice, please email [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you!

Is there a minimum payment — can a team bring four moderators to play for free or is there a $40 limit on the discount? I also see that this is the New York mirror, but is it strictly region-locked as an online tournament?

1. The minimum fee is $40 per team.

2. This online SCT site is not regionally-restricted (but teams outside the Eastern time zone may find it more convenient to register for one of our other online sites).

3. Reminder that high school teams are not permitted to play the NAQT SCT. (There are a number of events later in the spring using the Division II SCT set for high school tournaments.)
