Due to some inexperienced moderators and some bad bracketing.
(We had 21 teams and we were put into 3 brackets of 7 each for prelims)
The tournament ran much later than was expected.

However, Del Norte was pretty good at trying to fix these issues.
Bracketing was much better in the afternoon, and games in general ran more quickly.
There was much less time spent waiting.

Noho A beat Irvine A for the victory in the finals.

I thank Del Norte for hosting this tournament. I think that in spite of all the issues the
tournament in general was run decently.

The HSAPQ set we used was, in my opinion, overall pretty good.

Stats here.

It was a great effort for a staff where no one had any experience running a quiz bowl tournament. The afternoon bracketing issue was resolved quite well, with my only complaint being the seeding of each bracket.

A recap should be up on socalquizbowl.org soon.

Thanks for hosting!
