Golden Desert NIETOC Qualifier
Copied from NIETOC.com on 10/22/2020:
Bids are gained at the following levels:
0-19 contestants = FIRST PLACE BID
20-34 contestants = FIRST, SECOND & THIRD PLACE BIDS
35-50 contestants = FINAL ROUND BIDS
51-70 contestants = SEMIFINAL ROUND BIDS
71-99 contestants = QUARTERFINAL ROUND BIDS
100 + contestants = OCTAFINAL ROUND BIDS
Please note that bid level qualification is determined by the total number of contestants that compete in the event as opposed to the total number that register for the event. Duet Acting and Duo Interpretation are team events, therefore each team member counts towards the total competing in the event.
Extemp bids can be offered to separate divisions or to a single combined division. In either situation, the total number of contestants will determine the bid level.
For bids to be awarded, the post-preliminary round that is a qualifier must take place.
