Post Oakville GSAC (2/27/16)
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 27, 2016.

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.

Question Distribution:
4/4 Literature (1/1 American, 1/1 British, 1/1 European, 1/1 World/Ancient)
4/4 Science (1/1 Biology, 1/1 Chemistry, 1/1 Physics, 1/1 Other)
4/4 History (1/1 American, 1/1 European, 1/1 World, 1/1 Ancient/Modern (post-1945))
3/3 Fine Arts (1/1 Visual Art, 1/1 Music, 1/1 Other)
2/2 Religion, Mythology
1/1 Trash
.5/.5 Social Science
.5/.5 Philosophy
.5/.5 Geography
.5/.5 Current events and Civics

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 will be capping the field at 18 teams at the moment; however, if we have enough staff, we will expand the field to 24 teams.

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!

Field is currently full. We are in desperate need of staffers for this event. If we are able to obtain enough staffers, we will look into expanding the field.

Still looking for staffers. We currently have five staffers. Will pay a $30 stipend to moderators not affiliated with a school.

Seconding all of this. This was one of the smoothest tournaments I've been to all year; I can't even remember the last time I got to leave an event by 3:15. Glad to finally be able to make it to Oakville for a tournament.
