ORCS Earned Bid List
This page will be updated by the Tabulation Director as teams qualify from regional tournaments.
Bid Allocations: Each regional site is allotted a minimum of seven direct bids to an opening round championship tournament, or “ORC”, as indicated. The top six teams at each ORC will receive bids to the National Championship Tournament, April 15-17, 2016 in Greenville, South Carolina. Each school may earn no more than two bids to the opening round championship. If a bid from a regional tournament to the opening round is declined or otherwise ineligible, that bid placed into a nationwide open bid pool and will be distributed to the next best team, nationwide, which did not qualify for ORCS. AMTA does not anticipate distributing any open bids until – at the earliest – the week between the third and fourth weekends of regionals.

Bids shown on this list with a (6.6) notation are extra bids allotted to certain regionals under Rule 6.6. In 2016, a regional will be awarded an eighth bid to ORCS only if 25 or more bid eligible teams compete at the regional. Regionals tentatively assigned an extra bid, but whose regional drops below 25 teams, will have the extra bid revert to an open bid.
Questions or concerns regarding anything related to ORCS bids, bid distribution, open bids, or bid reservation should be directed to Johnathan Woodward, AMTA Tabulation Director.
