Buzzer System Discount Policy

Teams participating in NAQT’s national championship tournaments may earn discounts on their registration fees by bringing buzzer systems. The exact amount of the discount will vary from tournament to tournament.

However, the discounts are only available for qualifying systems; in particular, a buzzer system must have these features:

In addition, these broad classes of buzzers will not be accepted for discounts at the present time:

NAQT will test each provided buzzer system prior to the beginning of the championship; if a system fails to meet the above criteria, the discount will be rescinded.

In addition, NAQT’s buzzer system discounts assume that the system will be available for use through the end of the tournament (ICT, CCCT) or the end of the consolation rounds (HSNCT, MSNCT, SSNCT). Barring true emergencies, teams will not be able to reclaim their systems prior to this. For instance, an HSNCT team that plans to drive home on Saturday evening if it doesn’t qualify for the playoffs should not bring a buzzer system because the system will not be available for return on Saturday night.
