I am happy to announce the 5th Annual Washington High School Invitational Tournament (WHIT V) on December 7th, 2019.
It will be held at Washington High School, at 600 Blue Jay Drive, Washington, MO, 63090.
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.
There’s more info and the link below, but the registration link is also here.
This year we will be using the LOGIC set, written by members of the Miami Valley (OH), and University High (IL) teams. My assistant coach, Jacob O’Rourke, is the head editor of the set, as he has been for the past three years that we’ve used the WHAQ sets. More details about the set and question distribution can be found here.
This is the same set that is scheduled for Sparta, MO on Oct. 26. If you attend their event, you will not be able to attend our tournament.
We are currently capping the field at 48 teams. The field filled up within a few days last year, so be sure to register as soon as you can!
- $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 $10 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 PM. There will be a concession stand open during the day. There are several options for lunch in town. All but the top few teams should be done by 4 PM.
Spots will be filled on a first come/first served basis. Rather than emailing me,please use the 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 scorers.
Again, here is the form:
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 at the high school at the 3rd light. 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.
