Post WUHSAC XVII, February 14, 2015 (BHSAT set)
The Washington University Academic Team is excited to announce the seventeenth annual WUHSAC, to be held at Washington University in St. Louis on Saturday, February 14th, 2015. This is as in the previous two 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!

I'm 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 (hopefully) be bigger and better than ever!

To sign your team up for WUHSAC XVII, please e-mail me at seanqb1982@gmail.com. For those of you who have my hotmail address please do NOT use that. It is in the interest of a smooth registration that I have everything centrally located and timestamped and therefore would greatly appreciate if in lieu of responses here being accepted as registrations, you simply email this gmail account with a note in the memo line. Teams will be signed up on a first-come, first-served basis. The field will be updated in this thread 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.

WUHSAC's general rules will be similar to previous years with two major exceptions.

Rules
•20 tossups and bonuses per game
•no computational math
•no negs
•20 point powers
NO bouncebacks on bonuses. This is a one-year change done in the interest of the tournament running in a more timely fashion. After the event, I intend to forward all coaches a survey as to making this a permanent change.

Format
•36-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

I'd like to ask everyone interested in staffing the tournament to let me know well in advance of the tournament, by e-mailing me at seanqb1982@gmail.com or replying here. This will include both those volunteering on behalf of a school and others. 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 XVII will be invited to this year's PACE National Scholastics Championship, also to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA, part of the Washington, DC, metro area, on June 6-7, 2015. 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 powers and bouncebacks). A link to the 2015 NSC can be found here: http://www.pace-nsc.org/nsc-2015/

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

Sincerely,

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

One final note: for the first time this year, WUHSAC will be offering a small school title using NAQT definition of what constitutes a small school.

Also in light of Yale's decision to write this year's set to include powers I've decided to include 20 point powers which is more in line with the NSC format.

We are now approved by MSHSAA and are Platinum certified by PACE, meaning the top 25% will qualify for the 2015 NSC!

For the third year in a row and for reasons known only to them Rock Bridge has decided to again withdraw which gives us many open spots. If any teams are interested please let me know.

Ok so we are now at 32 teams, and thanks to Richard Yu procuring us an extra room this means we can have all the game rooms in Eads Hall instead of splitting it over two buildings as in previous years! I will be sending coaches a note shortly.

I want to thank my amazing crew for executing yesterday's event. They really rocked. Special shout outs to Jeff Hill, Charles Hang, Richard Yu, and Gordon Arsenoff! Each did stuff above and beyond! It was a great pleasure and an honor to host this event and the teams definitely helped make that so, so a big thanks to them. I will see you all next year!
