I have previously discussed what we'd like to see on socalquizbowl.org
In terms of high school tournaments, the October / November area is slated for the pan-region novice tournament, leaving one (1) season opener in September, one (1) tournament in December, and one (1) additional tournament in an available time slot in the October / November time frame. Of these, we’re looking for least one (1) NAQT tournament and one (1) non-NAQT tournament, not counting the novice tournament, which hopes to be on SCOP Novice; one (1) of the non-novice tournaments should be outside of San Diego. During this time frame, we are also looking for one (1) middle school tournament host.
UC San Diego plans to collapse Triton Spring and Triton Pre-Nationals into a single tournament held in May. This will not be considered a "regular-season tournament"; instead, the regular season will end in April, probably with the NAQT State Championship. This is to facilitate time for end-of-year school activities and AP and SAT testing, which have traditionally lowered May tournament attendance.
The schools which have spoken to me thus far are as follows:
- Caltech: LA-region novice tournament in October
- Scripps Ranch: NAQT tournament in early December
- Rancho Bernardo: NAQT tournament in early January
- Wangenheim / Mira Mesa: Middle school tournament
- Olympian: NAQT high school / middle school tournament in early April or on 21 October
- La Jolla / Madison: late March / early April
Please let me know if any of this information is incorrect or out-of-date.
9 September: ACT Testing
7 October: SAT Testing
28 October: ACT Testing
4 November: SAT Testing
2 December: SAT Testing
9 December: ACT Testing
23 December: WINTER BREAK
30 December: WINTER BREAK
10 February: ACT Testing
10 March: SAT Testing
14 April: ACT Testing

Is there any interest in a mirror of Scobol Solo
in Southern California? I used to coach/staff it when I was still in Chicago, and I think it could do well here.
