Post Oakville Varsity Tournament (GSAC Mirror) 2/22
Hello all,

Oakville Senior High School (Address: 5557 Milburn Road, St. Louis, MO, 63129) will be hosting a mirror of GSAC, a housewritten tournament produced by Maggie Walker Governor's School (VA), on February 22, 2013.

More details about GSAC can be found here: http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic. ... 09&t=14674

Each round will consist of 20 tossup questions with 20 3-part bonuses should a team answer a tossup correctly. Tossups will be worth 10 points, with 5-point negs for incorrect interrupts. There will be no powers at this tournament.

This tournament will also be using a rule where a single team can have no more than six players on a team. If you have more than six players, please do not feel hesitant about signing up a second or even third team! The extra playing time will be an invaluable experience for your novice players!

Fee Structure

First team from a school: $65
Every subsequent team from a school: $60
Buzzer Discount: $5 per system
Staffer Discount: $10 per staffer
Minimum Fee: $25 per team

We are setting a tentative field cap at 18 for this event, although we may expand if enough staff is available.

This tournament will be affiliated with the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance (http://moqba.org), an organization dedicated to promoting high quality quizbowl throughout the state of Missouri.

Since there are no viable lunch options within walking distance of Oakville Senior High School, we will be ordering pizza at a minimal cost (pepperoni/cheese) for all players and coaches. Lunch is free for all staffers.

Registering teams should email me at (whelehonc@mehlvilleschooldistrict.net) their signup information and any questions.

We hope to see you in February!

Here are prelim stats since I'm not beholden to Oakville's network nanny.

Ladue went 10-0 after playoffs. Parkway Central was 4-1 in the upper bracket and elected not to play them in a final where Ladue would have had the advantage. More stats to follow from either myself or Mike.

After a slight delay, playoff stats are posted here.

Thank you to all of the staffers (both moderators and scorekeepers) that helped with our tournament, including Sean Phillips, Frank Corley, Matthew Griffith, Peter Kahn, Marshall Mullins, Brandon Daake, David Gerding, Rachel Scott, Tommy Bauer, and Adam Harper. Our tournament couldn't have run so well without all of your assistance! A special thank-you goes to Thomas Robert for doing stats all day.
