This is the official announcement for the Florida Spring Tournament or FST, formerly known as SUN II. It is a sequel of sorts to 2017's Spring Undergraduate Novice (SUN), written as that tournament was, by members of the University of Florida, University of Central Florida, New College of Florida, and Auburn University quiz bowl clubs. The difficulty for this tournament will be around ACF Fall 2017. It will consist of twelve power-marked packets. The writing/editing team for the tournament is as follows:

Additional Writers:

Tracy Mirkin (of UF)

The slightly unorthodox distribution is as follows:
