NAQT has made a number of changes to its rules and policies for the 2019–2020 season.
Podcasts are now available of selected matches from NAQT's 2019 Individual Player National Championship Tournament.
NAQT recently conducted its officer elections for 2019-2020, and since our set of officers saw several changes, we wanted to notify the community. After 21 years, R. Robert Hentzel is stepping down as President of NAQT. During his tenure, he oversaw NAQT's dramatic growth, including the creation of five new championships. We are profoundly grateful for his leadership. R. will continue to be NAQT's Chief Technical Officer. Emily Pike is also stepping down as VP of Operations. For 12 years, Emily handled practice orders and shipped tournament sets. She made sure that literal tons of supplies made it to championships, where she led our friendly Info Desk team. We are so grateful for all her work!
Jason Thompson has accepted an offer of membership in NAQT. Jason, the former coach at Samuel V. Noe Middle School (Louisville, KY), has been a writer and editor for NAQT since 2013 and provides audiovisual support for our national championships. We look forward to working with him on many future tournaments!
