A few answers to frequently asked questions:

1) What if I need to make changes to my entry?

Email all changes to

2) But what if I have already paid?

We will reimburse any amount that has not already been committed for catering/trophy costs.

3) What if I want to come to the NDT, and I promise not to eat any food?

Good question. Someday, we may be able to work something out that will let that happen. But for now, we only get as many chairs in the IMU big room (which is also where most meals, the reception, and banquets are held) as the number of paid guests. This means that if you want to be a part of the fun, we need you to eat and pay for your seat.

4) What if I only need extra seats at the banquet or reception for parents/guests?

You can purchase individual tickets along with your tournament payment (see next tab). Reception & banquet tickets will also be available for online purchase about 2 weeks before the tournament.

5) Why are you asking for information that I already put into Tabroom?

Tabroom does an awesome job at organizing information for tournaments. Because the NDT has special requirements, and due to the size of the tournament, we need to collect this information again in order to be sure that your team doesn’t overpay/gets the right food at the tournament.

6) What if I am hiring a judge that isn’t traveling with my team?

Please be sure to check that your judges are all being covered as a participant or an observer by someone at the NDT. If you are “sharing a judge” with another school – please make clear the portion of the fees that you will cover with your entry payment. Judges: be sure that if you are getting paid, that you are also being “paid for.”
