Schools are encouraged to enter multiple teams, but please note that players must play for the same team throughout the tournament.

Fees:

Base fee: $60 per team

$10 discount for second or subsequent team from the same school

$10 discount per working buzzer system (must accommodate at least eight players)

Payment will be taken at check-in on February 22nd. Please make checks out to Jeff Hoppes.

How to register: please contact the tournament director, Jeff Hoppes (jeff.hoppes (at) gmail.com), on or before Monday, February 17th, indicating how many teams, buzzers, and staff your school plans to bring.

Wow and crap is my reaction.

Wow, because I'm pleasantly surprised by this.

Crap, because it just happens to be the one weekend where I can't help out. But if there is anything else in the future, I'd love to be able to help out.

Hey, Jeff!

I am available to moderate for this, if you need my help. Let me know either way.

Thanks,

Congratulations to Westview A, which went undefeated to win the Portland Invitational!

Complete team and individual statistics are available here.

Thanks to our host, Becky Wynne of Catlin Gabel, and everyone who helped moderate today: Alana Bertram (ISB), Bill Savoie (Union), Komo Chiu (Catlin/ms), Mitali Deb (Westview), and all of the Lincoln players who pitched in in the afternoon.

Special thanks to Angelo for single-handedly running our middle school division!

I hope that this is the first of many tournaments in the Portland area.

This Westview is different than the California-based one, right?
