IQBT NASAT Warm-Up - May 24 on Qblitz

Post by AKKOLADE »

IQBT and Qblitz are hosting a set of forty tossups to play on Tuesday, May 24 for use as a warm-up set for next month's NASAT event. These questions will roughly follow the distribution for NASAT.

This one-day event will have two divisions: a high school-only division and a open division for any high school graduates.

The entry fee is $10 per person. You can register here.

There's currently only one high school players signed up to play. If we don't get more, we'll have to fold this division into the Open division. The deadline to register is 11 p.m. central tomorrow.

A prior version of this announcement listed the set as consisting of 60 tossups; it actually consists of 40 tossups. I apologize for my error.

If you have registered for the tournament and this has caused you to change your mind, please email myself and Qblitz ASAP and we'll get you a refund.
