Palmetto Ridge High School would like to enter at least 1 team. We have buzzers and I can be a score keeper.

This is turning out to be a great tournament! Certainly the best Florida state championship that has been held. Almost all of the top quiz teams in the state are participating. Quality quiz is really growing here in Florida.

Well done Peter!

Thank you, coach. Without your help and many others in the FL circuit it would not possible. Look forward to seeing everyone next Saturday
