NAQT Region 11 SCT at Truman State-February 9, 2013

Post by Mickey0R0urke » Sat Dec 15, 2012 10:59 pm

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce that Truman State will be hosting the Region 11 SCT this year.

I will provide more details as they become finalized, but here is the current plan.

Location: Baldwin Hall. We'll be meeting in Baldwin 176 (the Little Theater).
Times: I'd like for everyone to arrive by 8:30 so that we can start the rounds promptly at 9. We should end no later than 6 PM.
Field: According to our room reservations, we can accommodate 24 teams initially, including DI and DII (Note: I'm more worried about staff for expanding the field more than rooms, we should be able to get plenty of rooms).

Registration will be done online through NAQT's website.

In order for us to get an idea of team's plans, I would like to request that teams email myself, Jacob O'Rourke, and my co-TD, Jared McNett, with buzzers, staffers, and any other pertinent information (like clocks) that you plan on bringing to the SCT. Our emails are jacob [dot] orourke [dot] 7 [at] gmail [dot] com and jwm7876 [at] truman [dot] edu.

Tournament Fees:
Base Fee: $120 per first team from a school
Second (and subsequent) teams fee: $100 per other team from the same school
Buzzer Discount: $10 per buzzer system
Clock Discount: $5 per clock
Moderator Discount: $30 per qualified moderator (please email us about this before you bring your moderator)
New School Discount: $20 for a school that has not played or hosted a Sectional in 2 years.
Travel Discount: $10 per 200 miles traveled (one-way, as determined by Google Maps).
Scorekeeper Discount: $10 per scorekeeper

I look forward to seeing everybody in Kirksville!

About goddamn time NAQT announced sites. I'll do my best to have NU swing this way instead of OSU.

We have enough rooms for 26 teams, so I think our initial cap is going to be 24 teams (DI and DII). If there ends up being a need for more rooms, I'll reserve more.

Speaking emeritus-ly for Mizzou, they are trying to get a team confirmed and will probably be registering soon.

Excellent. As long as it's done by the deadline, we're good.

Hey everyone, just a gentle reminder that registration for SCT closes in 4 days. Please remember that you don't have to have finalized your team rosters before you register, so if you have an estimate on the number of teams, please feel free to register.

And with the registration of Mizzou, we now have ten teams in DII. Division II is going to be a single round robin, while DI is going to be a triple round robin.

Pittsburgh State has registered for Division II, bringing us to 11 total teams in DII. We'll be running a full RR plus any necessary finals, and we'll announce when we decide whether DI is a triple or quintuple round robin.

This tournament happened today. Wash U A went 9-0 and won Division I, while Wash U B went 10-0 and cleared the field to win Division II. Charles Hang was DI's leading scorer, while Richard Yu led Division II in scoring.
