2017 Golden Gate Invitational (UC Berkeley and Stanford Collaboration)

Postby goldengatescioly » June 23rd, 2016, 8:07 pm

Hi everyone! We’re here to announce an exciting collaboration between past Science Olympiad National medalists at Stanford and Berkeley: the first annual Golden Gate Invitational. On February 11, 2017, our student groups will co-host an invitational run exclusively by past national competitors and event supervisors, open to teams across the nation. We’re thrilled to be the first university-run invitational on the west coast, and invite anyone interested to check out our website at http://www.goldengateso.com. Make sure to sign up for the mailing list to hear more information this summer and fall!

Talk to us at goldengatescioly@gmail.com, or reply below. We want to know who’s interested and what you’d like to see at the upcoming tournament!

C'mon bear, you let NorCal beat you to it? ;)

First order of business - nowhere on these two posts or on the website does it say which division(s) the tournament includes. I would assume Div C, but clarification would be nice.

I don't know if this was just added, but the linked website has " The inaugural tournament will be held at the UC Berkeley campus on February 11, 2017, for Division C only."

I'm pretty sure it was just added, because I also remember there being no mention of where the tournament would be either (although I've heard a lot about how Stanford is small, so I was working under the assumption that it would be at Berkeley anyway; nice to know I was right).

Is there an estimated amount of teams that will be in attendance at this invitational?

Unrelated: I hope kokonilly is involved with this (why am I so excited?)
