Minimum teams for a skills only tournament

According to the rules, for a tournament to be a qualifying event, there needs to be a minimum of 16 teams. It is also my understanding that this is true of skills only tournaments. If a skills only tournament has more than 16 teams signed up, but only 10 or 12 teams actually participate and record runs, do these score count for global rankings?

I am not sure if this is a question for here or for the official 2017 Vex Worlds Q7A so I will ask it both places.
