Hello, everyone! I'm pleased to announce that we will also be hosting a mirror of the Cottage Bowl trash tournament after our NASAT mirror. I, Charles Hang, will be directing it.


To register, please e-mail us at washuqb@gmail.com with the following information:

1/ How many teams you will bring.
2/ How many buzzers you will bring.
3/ How many players you will have, as well as their names.
4/ How many staff (moderators and scorekeepers) you will bring.

Please form and register a team before the event. A team formation spreadsheet is available here.

Fee Structure


We will be ordering pizza to eat between the academic and trash events. There a $4 per person charge if you want pizza.

We are willing to make accommodations if a team has trouble paying and wishes to arrange a payment plan, etc.

Please make checks out to "Washington University Academic Team;" we can also take cash but prefer checks.


The tournament will be in Eads Hall. Parking is plentiful.


We will begin around 4-5 PM. Please show up by 4 for this tournament, or get in touch with me by phone if you know you can't make it on time. I will send out a tournament information email with my phone number before the tournament.

We will end the tournament around 8, depending on how many rounds we play (which depends on how many teams sign up).

Tournament Format

We only have 6 packets, so for numbers of teams that are multiples of 4, we will probably do preliminary brackets of 4 teams, followed by playoffs brackets of 4 teams. If we have 6 teams, we will probably do a round robin, followed by a final if 2 teams are tied.

We've had a team drop and a team register. I'd like for one more team to register for an even 6.

A few updates:

1. The field has been updated to reflect it's current status. Depending on how things look when the field closes, I will determine the schedule then.

2. I have my work schedule for this day, and I can confirm I'll be there for most of it, until I have to leave at 3. After that, Sean will assume the TD mantle.

In the trash tournament, we played a 5 game single round robin, followed by a 1-round playoff between the top 2 teams, the middle 2 teams, and the bottom 2 teams. Teams "The BHSU That Couldn't Slow Down" and "Sean Phillibecky" both went 5-1, but since the former team had a higher PPG, we awarded them the championship.

Stats for the tournament are here.

Many thanks to every team that came to play some portion of St. Louis Open 2017! I had a fabulous time, and the players and staff are a big reason why.

I'd also like to thank the staff of the NASAT portion of the tournament! Many thanks to Sean Phillips, Peter Kahn, Joe Stitz, Kevin Stockman, David Dennis, Matt Chalem, Auroni Gupta, Ganon Evans and Spencer Johnson for staffing the event, which went like clockwork thanks to their fine work.

Hope to see you all sometime in the near future!

I, too, want to thank everyone at SLO this year for making my final tournament as a midwesterner (at least for now) so amazing! For those who haven't heard, I'm moving to Philadelphia later this summer and so I won't be around for these kinds of events on a regular basis. My time competing against folks in the midwest has been a blast and SLO was just more confirmation that this circuit has some amazing people!
