The All Alumni Western Tournament in summer 2014 was the first annual event solely to celebrate the Western Alumni members of the IHSA. For two previous years, a Hunt Seat Alumni Tournament of Champions is annually for alumni riders. The group of riders invited will span the entire United States and include up to 100 riders. The Western tournament is open to all Western Alumni, whether currently riding Alumni with the IHSA or haven previously ridden IHSA as an undergrad. 


Notes:
This event is being held to emulate the IHSA undergraduate tournament of champions in Alumni style but is not associated with the undergraduate event or Beckett Run Inc. This is not an official IHSA sanctioned event. We would encourage regions to formulate an Alumni Cup regional competition and the top 2 from that competition are invited to the annual final at the TOC. As an example, Zone 4, Region 4 has a top Alumni award for most points earned. Zone 3, Region 4 awards the Alumni Cup to the rider with the most points out of their top 7.
