Post WHIT III - Washington High Invitational - 12/2/17
Coaches,

As it's a bit way down this spiel, I'm including another link to the registration form here.

I am happy to announce the 3rd Annual Washington High School Invitational Tournament (WHIT III) on December 2nd, 2017. It will be held at Washington High School, at 600 Blue Jay Drive, Washington, MO, 63090.
Note: this is a change in venue from the past two years, where it was held in the Middle School building. The high school is nearby in the same "complex," however.

The tournament will be in the 20 Tossup/20 Bonus format. We will be using “Powers,” or 15 points for an early correct answer, but we will NOT be using “Negs” or “Interrupts” (-5 for early incorrect answers) In the interest of keeping the day running quickly, we will not be using bouncebacks on bonuses. We are restricting team rosters to 6 players. If you have more players, feel free to sign them up for a second team.

This is the second year in which we will be using the Washington High Academic Questionfest (WHAQ II), our team-written set of questions, done in collaboration this year with Miami Valley High School in Ohio. By the time of this tournament, there will have been at least three other tournaments across the country using this set, and we will be relying on their feedback to make sure we’re offering the best possible product. More details about the set and the question distribution can be found here.


We are currently capping the field at 48 teams, the same number as we hosted last year. The field can expand if there is significantly more interest and staff. The field filled up within a few days last year, so be sure to register as soon as you can!

Prices are:
- $70 for the first team from a school, $65 for each additional team. (B, C, D, etc.)
- Fully functional buzzer systems are a $5 discount (must work for 8 players, limit 2 per team)
- Providing an experienced scorekeeper is a $5 discount. We reserve the right to refuse scorekeepers.
- Providing an experienced moderator is a $15 discount. Please let us know about these well in advance. We reserve the right to refuse moderators.
- Teams traveling over 100 miles (one way per Google Maps) will receive a $5 discount.

Registration will begin at 8:30, the first matches will take place at 9:00 AM, and there will be a lunch break around 12:30 PM. There will be a concession stand (popcorn, candy, and sodas) open during the day. There are several options for lunch in town. Most teams should be done by 5 PM.

Spots will be filled on a first come/first served basis. Rather than emailing
me, please use this form to register. You are not registered until you receive a confirmation email from the tournament director. If interest and staffing permits, we will lift the cap to as high as we can accommodate, so again, please let us know about buzzers and moderators as early
as possible. We reserve the right to turn down moderators.

Teams placing 1st-4th will receive a trophy. There are prizes for the top 10 individual prelim scorers.

Our school’s address is 600 Blue Jay Drive, Washington, MO 63090.
- If you come by I-44, Washington is exit #251 on route 100 – turn right at the 100/47 intersection, and then take a left to the high school at the 2nd stoplight. At the 3rd light, turn left. If you can’t see the football field, you haven’t gone far enough.
- If you come by I-70, take exit 203 (State Hwy T) follow that for about 15 miles, turn left on 47, cross the bridge into town, and take a right to the high school at the 5th stoplight. If you pass the football field, you’ve gone too far.

If you have any other questions, my email is david.dennisATwashington.k12.mo.us

We have hit our initial cap. Our move to the high school building gives us the room to expand if needed, but I'd need to verify on staffing numbers before I go that far. Further signups will go onto the waitlist for the time being.
