PLAYOFF RESULTS: FINALS and 3RD PLACE GAME

Congratulations to Rockford Auburn A, the champions of WUHSAC XI. They put together an impressive preliminaries record, going 5-0 and scoring a whopping 502.0 PPG, before winning all of their playoff games before taking the final game against this year's runner-up, Carbondale, 300-160.

Meanwhile, Parkway Central A proved to be this year's bracket busters, upsetting No. 3 Francis Howell Central in the quarterinals before edging out a hard-fought match against No. 4 Eureka in the 3rd-place game.

Thanks so much to all who came out, whether to play or to help run this event. We hope you all had a great time, and hope to see you back next year!

Finals:
(1) Rockford Auburn A 300
(2) Carbondale 160

Hey, what was the distribution? We heard something like 2/2 Current Events, 2/2 Pop Culture, 2/2 Science, and 2/2 Math Computation (with the remainder being history/literature), but that's just our guess.

*Just to note, we also heard fine arts, religion, mythology, philosophy, and social sciences--I lumped them under history (I was thinking Social Studies, my apologies)

You did hear 2/2 math comp but that was actually reduced slightly from some rounds having 3/2 or 2/3 math comp in previous years. You most DEFINITELY did not hear 2/2 pop culture as I WROTE the pop culture as I have for the last 8 years and do not allow more than 1/1 in the distribution. Also there was no more than 1/1 of Current events in this distribution. We are quite strict about this.

Actually, I think I'm the only one who complained...and to be honest, I wouldn't be too surprised if I was wrong.

So, no worries about me complaining if I see the distribution and I was wrong...

P.S. Yes, I know that I haven't asked for it yet...I've been busy.

Sorry for not being on the past couple days and not responding to these requests. First:

master15625 wrote:Will questions for this tournament also be posted?


Not at this time, until details for a potential east-coast mirror have been ironed out, and the date for said event has passed.

Charbroil wrote:Alright, thanks for clarifying. I still think the actual distribution would be interesting to look at, though.


Here is the distribution we used for this set:

4/4 History (2/1 or 1/2 for Euro and American each round, 1/1 non-western)
4/4 Literature (2/2 European, 2/1 or 1/2 American, and the last question Non-western)
4/4 Science (1/1 each of Bio, Chem, Physics, and Other)
2/2 Math (About 3 of those 4 calculation, the other theory)
2/2 Art (1/1 Visual, 1/1 Music)
2/2 RMP/Social Sciences (Mostly the former)
1/1 Geography
1/1 Trash
1/1 Current Events

I don't know how this compares to the "traditional" high school distribution. I know I've strived for a hybrid between what has been the distribution in WUHSACs past, and formats like ACF and HSAPQ (what is the distribution on the latter, btw?). I personally will never eliminate math calculation from HS events entirely (sorry guys, I just don't buy your arguments laid out on the "policy" page, but that discussion has been reiterated too many times as it is), but I will gladly take any suggestions about the current distro.

I will go bother Puneet about getting those posted. We need to be better about that. Sorry.

Alright, thanks. We probably turned the 1/1 Current Events & Trash in our minds into "2 questions," which translated to 2/2 in my post.

And thanks for the well run tournament, by the way. It was a pleasure attending.

From past experience, yes. Each packet is 21/21 in case of (a) a mistake which requires replacing a question and/or (b) a sudden-death overtime.

It's 1/1 Trash and 1/1 CE, which adds up to 2/2 Trash or CE.

So you'll gladly take any suggestions except for the one suggestion that any reasonable person will have, which is to eliminate the 10% of your match dedicated to bad, not-quizbowl questions? That doesn't seem like you will be glad to take suggestions at all!
