WUHSAC XX (BHSAT mirror) February 17, 2018

Postby Jeremy Gibbs Paradox » Fri Sep 29, 2017 3:35 pm

The Washington University Academic Team is excited to announce the twentieth annual WUHSAC, to be held at Washington University in St. Louis on Saturday, February 17th, 2018. This is as in the previous years, President's Day Weekend, which (weather permitting) is an ideal way to use the holiday by seeing our campus and the city of St. Louis!

My name is Sean Phillips, and I'll serve as tournament director for this year's tournament. The set is once again a mirror of Yale's BHSAT event. We are looking forward to a tournament that will celebrate the awesome teams and students playing in the event as well as our two decades of hosting the best and brightest of Missouri and nearby states!

To sign your team up for WUHSAC XX, please e-mail me at seanqb1982@gmail.com with a note about WUHSAC in the memo line so I can easily flag it. Teams will be signed up on a first-come, first-served basis. The field will be updated online at moquizbowl.com and hsquizbowl.org as registrations are received. If the field fills up before you can sign up, please allow us to waitlist you as well; in such a large field there is an appreciable chance that one or more teams will cancel. I will be setting the initial cap at the same as we had the last two years which was 48 teams.

WUHSAC's general rules will be similar to last year.

Rules
•20 tossups and bonuses per game
•no computational math
•20 point powers
•NO bouncebacks on bonuses.
UNLIKE last year, we WILL be using negs.

Format
•48-team field with the possibility that this might expand
•Bracketed round robin prelims
•Re-bracketed round robin playoffs
•four-team superplayoffs and final if needed

Fees for the tournament will be as follows:
•$10 per school plus $65 per team
•-$5 per fully functional (eight-player) buzzer, up to $15 off per school
•-$15 per experienced staff volunteer

Information regarding the set distribution for BHSAT can be found at this link:

viewtopic.php?f=109&t=20124

I'd like to ask everyone interested in providing staff to let me know the name of the staffer as soon as possible and if that person would rather scorekeep or is good to read. Keeping track of staff for a tournament of this size will be almost as big a deal as keeping track of the field in preparation for the event. Thank you very much for your help!

As in previous years, we expect that some number of top-finishing teams at WUHSAC XX will be invited to this year's PACE National Scholastics Championship, which is on June 2nd-3rd at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA. We hope WUHSAC will provide a useful opportunity for teams and staffers to visit and become familiar with a format similar to that of NSC beforehand (albeit NSC uses bouncebacks). A link to the 2017 NSC can be found here:

http://www.pace-nsc.org/2017-pace-nsc-j ... 1-chicago/

In addition there will be a separate award for the top small school at the event, using the PACE NSC definition of small school as well as an award if 4 or more teams qualify for the top JV team per the PACE definition. The definitions are as follows per the 2017 NSC:

"A JV team consists of players in 10th grade or below...

A “small school” is a school with fewer than 700 students in 10th through 12th grades that is a public school and has a non-selective admission policy (non-selective is not the same as non-magnet; schools from systems where every school is a specialized center and students may choose to attend any are eligible)."

If you have any further questions, please e-mail me or reply here. We look forward to you all attending WUHSAC XX!

Sincerely,

Sean Phillips
Tournament Director, WUHSAC XX
Alumni Advisor, Washington University Academic Team

Just as a point of clarification, South Callaway should be marked as small-school eligible, right?

Two spots remain! I will start a waitlist once they fill and will examine increasing the cap once we draft a schedule for a >54 team field and reserve the rooms.

Dear All,

Thank you so much for what was one of the great experiences of my life. It was truly an honor and privilege to put this on for so many brilliant young people and awesome coaches. Please come back any time.

Full stats have been since the event ended but here is the link to it:

http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/4640/

I have so many people to thank and I don't want to start listing names as I will forget someone, but I would be remiss if I didn't specifically thank Jeffrey Hill, President of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance, and Jacob O'Rourke, MOQBA's Treasurer, for their superior work getting 284 games into SQBS to keep everything moving on time. If I look good it's only because these guys and all the staff are so brilliant that they make me look good. I'll be hard pressed to top this crew in the future.

Spoiler alert: I'm totally going to try.

Take care and please email me if there are any outstanding issues. I look forward to seeing you all down the road!

Sincerely,

Sean Phillips
