2020 Individual Player National Championship Tournament: Canceled
NAQT and LetterOne regret to inform the quiz bowl community of the cancellation of the Individual Player National Championship Tournament, which had been scheduled to take place April 5, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we determined that hosting an event with a national field at this time would pose an unacceptable risk to the health of attendees and their communities.
All registered players who have already paid will receive a refund. No cancellation fees will be charged for the 2020 IPNCT; cancellation fees we have collected will be returned.
We have also canceled the Individual Player National Championship Tournament, which was scheduled for the same weekend and site, and the Small School National Championship Tournament and Middle School National Championship Tournament, which were scheduled for later in April and May, respectively, in Chicago. We still hope to run the 2020 High School National Championship Tournament, but we will continue to monitor the situation over the coming weeks. We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming weeks. If we feel confident that we can run this event in a way that is safe for the participants and responsible from a public health perspective, we will do so. Please read about our safety procedures and refund policies for the HSNCT.
We know this decision is disappointing to everyone who was looking forward to competing at the 2020 IPNCT. We hope that everyone in the quiz bowl community stays safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing all of you at future NAQT events.
