Post 2011 Nationals bids thread
Quick placeholder for now... I'll edit this post in the next day or two with the full details like previous years' threads.

Congratulations to Ladue and Villa Duchesne A for qualifying for both NAQT HSNCT and PACE NSC at the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament. Congratulations also go to Rock Bridge and North Shelby for also qualifying for HSNCT!

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 2011 iterations of these tournaments.
___________________________________________________________________
NAQT High School National Championship Tournament

The 2011 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament will be held on May 27-29, 2011 in Atlanta, GA.

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.

HSNCT Fees/Discounts
* Base fee (on or before April 29): $575; (after April 29) $595 [If you first qualify after April 1 the cutoff date is May 9]
* 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.

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.

Results:

I think we might have qualified for PACE too, but I am not sure. (?)

Helias and Rock Bridge should qualify for PACE NSC based on the tournament I held this weekend, I believe.

Finally got this updated... sorry for the delay.

In addition to the mentions above, congratulations to Oakville for qualifying for HSNCT and NSC at the St. Louis University Academic Competition on October 30. Villa Duchesne qualified for both tournaments once again at this tournament.

Re: Iowa State and Jefferson City qualifiers

I have been told that Jefferson City will be in the next round of tournaments the certification committee votes on, and will press for ISU to be on that list as well.

I'm really bad at keeping this up to date this year... :(

For Tiger Bowl III on December 4, I'll just quote Charlie's post from the Tiger Bowl thread:
ashkenaziCD wrote:
I am pleased to announce that this tournament is officially the first tournament ever held in Missouri to be awarded Gold certification by PACE. This means that Ladue A, Clayton A, Jefferson CIty, Rock Bridge A, Ladue B, and Parkway West A will receive bids to the National Scholastics Championship at Northwestern University on June 4th and 5th. These teams are also able to register for the NSC on January 1st, which is earlier than teams with regular bids, and they will get a $50 discount from their entry fee. Congratulations to these teams, you all did an incredible job to warrant our gold status. It's a true sign that the quality of the circuit here is improving incredibly quickly.

In addition, pending confirmation of PACE affiliation, Savannah has qualified for PACE NSC for the first time at the Missouri S&T Fall Tournament on December 11! Clayton qualified once more for NSC at this tournament.

All the gold certified teams (Ladue A, Clayton A, Jefferson City, Rock Bridge A, Parkway West A, Ladue B, Savannah, Richland A, and Oakville) can register for the NSC as soon as they want. The registration information is at this link - http://pacensc.wufoo.com/forms/2011-pac ... istration/

Additionally, on January 15th the teams with multiple bids to the NSC but none from a gold tournament can register. I believe Villa Duchesne is the only such team in Missouri right now.

Also, for teams that intend to sign up for the NSC but haven't done so yet, it's worth mentioning that paying before (on?) March 1 gives a $25 discount.

If the check is in the mail by March 1, I'll grant the discount.

Also, Parkway West is in, putting the field up to 39 teams.

We are tied with Kentucky as having the 2nd most teams in the field at PACE. If 2 more teams sign up we'll be the state with the most teams in the field. If you were interested in registering, you should do so before the end of the month so you can claim your early registration discount.

How are y'all getting down (those of you who go to HSNCT)? We're considering driving, and we've floated the idea of sharing a big bus with other teams if they would be willing to split the costs.

Just a reminder to all teams that they should consider this event pretty strongly - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2191
Pre-Nationals last year was great fun and I expect it to be even better this year, but we need more teams to make that happen. This is your chance to shake off rust before nationals (especially if you don't make it out of districts), after all.

Max, Rock Bridge is interested in looking into the coach bus possiblility. Do you have any idea on costs?

I tried to get quotes and costs for this were shockingly expensive, especially if we can't fill a 56-person bus (which we won't be able to do). I doubt this will be worth it.

Eureka is now in the field of the HSNCT! They had a field expansion, so people should sign up.

Daggumit. Meh, I need the week off anyway to finish NSC prep.

PS: There have been a couple drops in the past few days, so there is ample space. If you're worried about cost, you can apply to be a standby team.

Hopefully this is the right thread in which to post this; Ladue is bringing exactly one girl to the HSNCT, which is an awkward number. Are there any other teams in a similar situation who would like to combine forces to save money and have our players share a room?
