The EC has compiled the following information on NPS events for convenient reference.

We will have this rubric for all events in spearate threads, but here is NPS now.

(Needs to be divisible by number of venues and by 4 (teams per bout) Total number of teams should also be divisible by three (number of prelim nights) (For five venues 60, or for 6 venues 72, or for 7 venues 84) Other numbers can also work, just not as easily. (For example, if we go with three bouts a night, a long night, we could make 5 venues work for up to 90 teams.)
