Question Set
The tournament will be running a mirror of Harvard Fall Tournament XII, which was graciously provided by Jason Park and the Harvard team.

PACE Qualification
We are currently awaiting notification regarding PACE Qualification. I'll edit this post once we hear from them!

Team Size
Teams are limited to six players, and only four can play at any one time. If a school wishes to field more than six players, they must register an additional team.

The field will be initially capped at 20 teams, but we may expand this if resources allow. Teams registering after the field as been set will be placed on a waiting list. We will guarantee at least 10 rounds of competition for every team.

Please feel free to contact Eric Chang ( with any questions regarding the tournament.

Thank you, and we hope to see you in Blacksburg!

Can we get a field update or are we actually the only school sending any teams at the moment?

As of right now, yes Langley is the only team registered right now. We have gotten verbal commitments from some schools, but they haven't registered yet. We expect to get more registrations after VHSL states.
