We are pleased to announce that the West Coast site of MLK XVII will be held at the University of California San Diego on January 17, 2016.

As previously discussed with schools in the Southwest region, we will be hosting MLK XVII on Sunday, January 17. This will hopefully facilitate travel for teams outside of the SoCal region, as they can travel through the quizbowl desert on Saturday and then theoretically have the day off on Monday to travel back home (the MLK part of this tournament).

Eligibility: Anyone enrolled in school can play with anyone else in school.

Fee structure:
base fee: $120 per team
buzzer discount: -$5 per working buzzer set
staffer discount: -$20 per staffer
distance discount: -$5 per 50 miles traveled one-way

We accept both cash and checks. Checks should be made out to "San Diego Quizbowl".

To register, email us at [email protected] with:
1) # of teams
2) # of buzzers and staffers
3) whether your team is single-school or open
4) expected fee after discounts

For more information about the set, see here: ... =8&t=17500

So far, we haven't had any signups yet. There will be at least two UCSD teams, but I assume it's been difficult for other clubs to get a grasp on logistics because everyone has been just coming out of/is still on winter break. There will be a tournament though, even if the worst case scenario is a couple of UCSD house teams sitting around playing each other.
