ACF Fall mirrors for HS

Post by hornetvtol »

Do any of you guys know about any ACF Fall mirrors for high school? Preferably in the Southwest, as I live in Nevada, but I'm not picky.
Thanks so much.

I don't believe info for ACF Fall is out yet, so ACF Fall mirrors in the South are still in question.

Edit: Speaking of which, where are the ACF Fall mirrors in TX usually held?

If you don't mind a long commute, Northern Illinois usually holds one. This being an Illinois tournament, there would be a pretty high caliber of competition for you there.

I do not know if it is happening again this year but according to this thread there was one last year in Norcal which I assume is closer to Nevada than Illinois.
