This is not a good date for this, as it is NHBB Nationals, for which Catlin Gabel and Westview will both be in attendance with their strongest players. Given that there aren't many active programs in Oregon yet and very few date conflicts, I strongly suggest you look at a date in May or earlier in April.

This tournament will be pushed back one week to Saturday May 3rd, in order to accommodate the teams attending History Bowl Nationals. Hopefully, there will be no other conflicts with any interested teams.

Would it be possible to have a running list of schools currently registered for the event?

As of right now, the only team that has shown serious interest has been Portland Jesuit. Some of the other teams that I contacted have expressed limited interest. I just sent out a reminder e-mail to all the contacts that I have, so hopefully there will be more information to post about soon.

Also, in said e-mail, I left open the option of moving the tournament back a week or two, depending on what works best for the greatest amount of teams. Stay tuned...

Unfortunately, due to a lack of interest, I am going to have to cancel this tournament. I think that the groundwork has been laid to get a circuit going in Oregon, but it will have to wait until next year. And good luck to the teams from Oregon competing at Nationals!
