NAQT Florida State Championship -- March 31

Post by bjorkchop » Sun Mar 04, 2012 7:41 pm

I'm happy to announce the first-ever NAQT South Florida State Championship. Given the size of the state (and the lack of a tournament venue) it was time for a new district. Note that if a North/Central Florida location does not emerge for a "North Florida State Championship," then this tournament will serve as the state championship, by default. ** NAQT notified us on 3/20/12 that this will be the official State Tournament site **
