2010 Nationals bids thread

Post by Jeffrey Hill » Sun Oct 11, 2009 11:17 am

Now that the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament has completed, it's time to start this year's nationals bids thread! Congratulations to Hickman and Salem for earning bids to NAQT HSNCT, and to Ladue and North Kansas City for earning bids to both HSNCT and PACE NSC!

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance encourages all teams to work towards qualifying for two high quality national tournaments, which regularly feature highly competitive fields of the nation's top teams. This post provides information about how to qualify for these tournaments, a list of qualifying tournaments, as well as a list of Missouri teams that have qualified for the 2010 iterations of these tournaments.
___________________________________________________________________
NAQT High School National Championship Tournament

The 2010 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament will be held on May 28-30, 2010.

HSNCT Qualification Criteria
1. Finishing in the top 15% of the field at any event that uses NAQT questions.
2. Finishing as the highest-placed team at an NAQT State Championship or NAQT State Qualifier that had not qualified for the HSNCT prior to the state tournament.
3. Being the top team from a small (public) school (by NAQT's definition) at any event that uses NAQT questions, so long as the team also finishes at least tied for the median position in the overall standings. (NAQT defines a small school as one with "fewer than 500 students in grades 10-12 and a non-selective admission policy.")
4. Winning any class or division of an official state championship with rules and questions similar to those of NAQT.

While NAQT also allows qualification through wildcard bids, MSHSAA rules currently prohibit Missouri teams from attending a national tournament on a wildcard bid. Full details about qualifying for HSNCT are available on NAQT's website.

List of registered teams on NAQT's website

HSNCT Fees/Discounts
* Base fee (on or before April 23): $565; (after April 23) $585 [If you first qualify after April 1 the cutoff date is May 10]
* Buzzer systems: -$30 per system, each team may claim up to two such discounts. Lockout systems will be tested at check-in, and those that don't have at least eight functioning buzzers will be denied the discount.
* Qualified, experienced scorekeeper: -$75 discount. This scorekeeper will not necessarily scorekeep for his or her school's matches; he or she will be assigned as the tournament director sees fit. Also, a team claiming this discount must still have at least one adult coach/chaperone with the team at all matches.

* Missouri Fall Academic Tournament [16 teams] on October 10, 2009. (Qualified: Ladue, North Kansas City, Hickman, Salem)

PACE National Scholastics Championship

The 2010 PACE National Scholastics Championship will take place on June 5 and 6 at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. 64 of the top teams in the country will compete for the PACE national championship. The 2010 tournament format will offer at least 15 games to all teams and will produce a top-to-bottom ranking of the entire field.

NSC Qualification Criteria
The top 2 teams from any affiliated tournament of fewer than 20 teams, the top 4 teams from any affiliated tournament of 20 to 39 teams, and the top 8 teams from any affiliated tournament of 40 or more teams, receive automatic qualification to the 2009 PACE NSC. More teams may qualify if the event is gold- or platinum-certified.

While PACE also allows qualification through wildcard bids, MSHSAA rules currently prohibit Missouri teams from attending a national tournament on a wildcard bid. Full details about qualifying for NSC are available on PACE's website.

List of registered teams on PACE's website

Do you know what the relative costs for entering these two tournaments is?
(We have to decide which one to go to, but it will probably be HSNCT. Assuming we can raise the funds...)

Glad you brought this up! I will update the above post with this information as well.

HSNCT Information
HSNCT Fees/Discounts wrote: * Base fee (on or before April 23): $565; (after April 23) $585 [If you first qualify after April 1 the cutoff date is May 10]
* Buzzer systems: -$30 per system, each team may claim up to two such discounts. Lockout systems will be tested at check-in, and those that don't have at least eight functioning buzzers will be denied the discount.
* Qualified, experienced scorekeeper: -$75 discount. This scorekeeper will not necessarily scorekeep for his or her school's matches; he or she will be assigned as the tournament director sees fit. Also, a team claiming this discount must still have at least one adult coach/chaperone with the team at all matches.
NSC Registration Information
NSC Fees/Discounts wrote: * Base fee: $500 per team
* Automatic qualifier discount: -$25 per applicable team (all eligible teams from Missouri qualify for this discount since MSHSAA doesn't allow wildcard bids)
* Gold qualifier discount: -$50 per applicable team
* Platinum qualifier discount: -$75 per applicable team
* Buzzer systems: -$10 each per school, no limit
* Staffers: -$50 each per school, max 2 per school
* Hosting a gold-certified tournament: -$10 each per tournament, no limit
* Hosting a platinum-certified tournament: -$20 each per tournament, no limit
* Early payment discount: -$25 from total fee for paying by March 15
For 1 team, excluding travel costs and assuming early payment:
1 buzzer system: HSNCT $535, NSC $440
2 buzzer systems: HSNCT $505, NSC $430
1 buzzer system, 1 staffer: HSNCT $460, NSC $380
2 buzzer systems, 1 staffer: HSNCT $430, NSC $370
1 buzzer system, 2 staffers: HSNCT $460 (assuming max 1 per school), NSC $330
2 buzzer systems, 2 staffers: HSNCT $430, NSC $320
(please let me know if any of these calculations are wrong)

Keep in mind that HSNCT is in Chicago while NSC is near Washington DC, and that bringing a staffer will have extra travel/accommodation costs.

I just booked my tickets to staff NSC!

I'll be at HSNCT as well but haven't decide how I'm going to get there. I'm wondering if I should fly or drive out to St. Louis and ride up with some fellow Missouri staffers (though the latter would probably require heading to STL on Thursday after work or early Friday morning). Just a thought...

I really want to work NSC this year; do they need people?

I usually leave mid-morning Friday for HSNCT; I prefer to get up there by 2 or 3 to get everything out of the way and meet people, etc., before scrimmages start Friday.

I'm sure they could use the extra help. I'll pass this on to the appropriate people.

List of MO teams attending Nationals has been updated:

http://www.naqt.com/hsnct/2010/field.html

I think Clayton and NKC are the new additions. It's a good thing they got in, given that the field is also now full.

Edit: Also, Missouri's up there in the number of teams registered; we have 11, and are beaten by with Minnesota (15), Illinois (13), and Texas (12).

I was telling Rob Hentzel this weekend how excited I was that we have 11 Missouri teams signed up. So he of course had to tell me, "Minnesota has more."

I just thought, fine, rub it in! :P I did remind him that five years ago, Missouri had NO teams attending! :wink:

Field was expanded to 200 teams so it appears Rock Bridge is in.

On the off-chance that a qualified team has the money to pay for a last minute trip to D.C., the PACE NSC has had a few drops and is looking for teams to fill out the field.

Also, HSNCT bound teams should check out the HSNCT blog at: http://hsnct.wordpress.com/

There's quite a bit of interesting prognostication, as well as a list of noteworthy teams that will be attending the tournament.

There's a PACE NSC Blog as well: http://pacensc.wordpress.com/

I'm looking forward to see how Holden does, especially given that they're the first non-NKC team to ever attend NSC from Missouri (at least as far as I'm aware of).

Savannah won in Iowa State this weekend, qualifying us for NAQT Nationals. WE went 11-1 and won the finals over Ames A if anyone was curious. It was pretty fun actually.

Oops. I guess I am still stuck in last year.
