MOQBA NASAT Workshop (12/14/2019)

Post by Mickey0R0urke » Thu Nov 14, 2019 7:55 pm

Hello friends,

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to announce we will be announcing a workshop for determining the Missouri NASAT teams for the 2020 NASAT. The workshop will be hosted at Columbia Independent Schools. CIS' address is 1801 N Stadium Boulevard, Columbia, MO, 65201.

In order to register to attend the workshop, please fill out this form. The current plan for the day is to hold single-subject "shootouts" in the AM and place everyone into teams for scrimmages in the PM. As this is an individual (and not a team-based) event, this does not count towards any individual or team MSHSAA event count for the year.

Attendance at the workshop is not mandatory to be considered for the NASAT team, and MOQBA will use tournaments from throughout the season, along with this workshop, to make the final decision on team membership. The event will allow members of MOQBA, who might never get to see various players in action, to get a chance to do so, as well as letting our coaches gather contact info.

Difficulty
The level of the questions at NASAT is comparable to regular collegiate difficulty, harder than either NAQT or PACE nationals. NASAT is often written to feature interesting and novel approaches to clues and topics, and the intellectually curious player should find a lot to enjoy in the set.

Travel and Expenses
The arrangement of travel will be determined after the teams have been announced. In past years, several players have traveled there with their parents and stayed with them, but MOQBA will work to find travel and hotel space for players who need it, without cost to the students. We don’t want financial concerns to be an impediment to someone’s willingness to try out for the squad.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them, whether via this thread or by email (jacob.orourke at moqba.org).

See you all on December 14th!
