I, Jacob O’Rourke, my assistant director, Sean Phillips, and the Washington University Academic Team are pleased to announce that Washington University in St. Louis will be hosting a fall invitational tournament on November 11, 2017. We will be using the Maryland Fall question set; more information about the set can be found here.
Logistics information will be made available once the semester begins. This tournament will be seeking to be a qualifier for the 2018 PACE NSC.
The fee structure is:
Base Fee: $70 per first team from a school, $60 per each subsequent team from a school.
Staffer Discount: $15 per staffer.
Working Buzzer Discount: $5 per buzzer (your system must allow for 8 people to play at any one time for us to use it for the discount).
Distance Discount: $5 per 100 miles (one-way, as determined by Google Maps).
This tournament’s field will be initially capped at 24 teams. After the initial field fills, we will expand the field by 4 teams (so first we will expand to 28; then to 32, although it depends on our staffing situation) until reaching a final field of 36 teams.
We are allowing for direct entry for the first two teams from a school. A third team from a school (C team) will get the first spots on the waitlist for expansion. Any further teams (example: D or E teams) will be placed on a separate waitlist and allowed into the field 10 days before the tournament date, pending available space in the field (so you will know by November 1st).
To register, simply email myself (Jacob O'Rourke) at email@example.com and tell me how many teams, buzzers and staffers your school will be bringing.
I look forward to seeing everybody on November 11th!

PACE wrote:a school with fewer than 700 students in 10th through 12th grades that is a public school and has a non-selective admission policy. Please note that non-selective is not the same as non-magnet. Eligible schools are schools from systems where every school is a specialized center and students may choose to attend any school.
EDIT (4:18 PM 10/30): 3 spots left!

To start off with, my amazing Assistant TD Sean Phillips and my other partner in crime, David Dennis, deserve a huge amount of thanks for helping to keep me sane and for making the schedule that I gave to everyone in their folders when they checked in. Further thanks should go out to Stephanie Hull, Matt Chadbourne, Kyle Hill, Itamar Naveh-Benjamin, Patrick Butenhoff, Kevin Stockman, Rachel Derner, Anna Peacock, Tirth Patel, Andy Walz, Arjun Joshi, Ericka Hayes, Lily Hamer, Alex Harmata, Adric Montgomery, Brad Tutterow, Amy Sternke, Brian Tutterow, Samantha Doepker, Kyle Meyer, Jeremy White, Joe Stitz, Amanda Arbuckle, Alex Newman, Jonah Krueger, Dinis Trindade, Matt Hasquin, Erik Tomasic, Madeline Alburtus, Nathan Card, Collin Nadarajah, Todd Garrison, Matthew Zucker, Eric Schindler, Zoe Cooke and Byron Chin.
