St. Mark’s School of Texas will be hosting its eighth annual NAQT tournament and you are invited to attend.  The tournament will be on Saturday, February 27, 2016 in Dallas at St. Mark’s School (10600 Preston Rd., Dallas, TX 75230).  The event will feature separate Varsity and Novice divisions for high school.

Schools may bring multiple teams.  New this year — registration for the tournament must be done online through the NAQT website.  Click here to register a single team.  Be sure to select the appropriate level for your team, either the Novice or Varsity division.  If you plan on bringing multiple teams, please register each team separately.  The cost of the tournament will be $100 per team with a $10 discount for providing a fully operational buzzer system.  The entry deadline is Friday, February 19.  Each team will receive a copy of the questions at the conclusion of the tournament.

Check-in will open at 8:00 a.m. and the first round of matches will start promptly at 9 a.m.  Teams will need to check in, drop off buzzer systems, pick up schedules, and then head to their competition room.  Teams will be expected to be in their first round room (unless they have a bye in round 1) by 9 a.m.  This will be an official NAQT tournament.  (You can download the latest NAQT rules at this link).  We will be using NAQT question set IS-154.  Rounds will be played in two untimed halves with 10 questions each half plus bonuses.  The specific format of the tournament (either round robin or double elimination) will be determined after the field of teams is set and will be dependent on the number of teams participating in each division.  A minimum of seven matches is guaranteed for all teams participating in the tournament.

Entry fees or purchase orders should be made out to St. Mark’s School of Texas and directed to: St. Mark’s School of Texas, Attn: Paul Mlakar, 10600 Preston Road, Dallas, TX 75230. If you have additional questions, please email Paul at mlakarp@smtexas.org
