Torrey Pines Quizbowl is pleased to announce TPAIN IV (Torrey Pines Academic INvitational), a regular-difficulty high school tournament.

DATE/TIME: TPAIN will take place on September 23, 2017. Check-in begins at 8:00 A.M., and rounds start at 9:00 A.M. We hope to end the tournament by around 5 - 6 P.M. including finals rounds if necessary. There will be separate JV and Varsity divisions, both using the same set.

To be eligible for JV division, players must have:
- No more than two years of experience
- Never been to a National Tournament
- Won no more than three HS tournaments at the JV or Varsity level in a single academic year.

Varsity division will be the HSNCT and PACE qualifiers.

LOCATION: TPAIN will take place on the campus of Torrey Pines High School, located at 3710 Del Mar Heights Rd, San Diego, CA 92130. Room locations TBA. Logistics emails will go out a week before the tournament. A map of campus can be found here.
