If you're looking for west coast-exclusive stuff, join the QB-WC mailing list by visiting https://mailman.stanford.edu/mailman/li ... -westcoast
and subscribing. Also, once people start using the hsquizbowl.org tournament data base, you should be able to search for tournaments near you.
EDIT: Once you join, the website tells me you can look at the Archives for prior tournament announcements, so all the tournaments should be listed in those Archives.

"It's a competition, but it's not a sport. On a scale, if football is a 10, then rowing would be a two. One would be Quiz Bowl." --Matt Birk on rowing, SI On Campus, 10/21/03
