Pretty much - the President of FSO and Valerie (state director) are both willing to let us run it, but I am waiting to ensure that UF admin will give us access to the rooms we need. They have been being unresponsive recently (probably because its summer) and I would like a more definitive "yes" before we fully commit to it. We will post on here and through social media as soon as we officially commit.
thank you!
Although having state competitions at UCF was fun, I believe UF will be delivering a higher quality tests and event supervisions!
I definitely agree. I can't wait for the next state tournament - seems like it's going to be really fun and provide a high quality experience!

March 28 would be fantastic :) How about regional? I hope the regional dates will be closer this year, so we can have more meaningful invitationals for everyone. I pledge at least two middle school invitationals again. It could be even three this year. Not sure about high school, but would like to host one. I sure hope you can host a high school invitational as well.

It was a good year overall for us except "oh we were so close" blues at division C. Looking forward to 2019-2020.
Tentatively, the plan is for UF Regionals to be held on January 18th, 2020, and Florida States to be held at UF on March 28th, 2020.

We will not be hosting an invitational because we will have our hands full planning these two tournaments. We are however looking into opening up our regional tournament to other teams from both within and outside of FL to compete "for fun". They would have to pay an additional registration fee and would not receive medals/trophies and would not be included in the final rankings, but they would be able to come and compete. This is a tentative idea that I would love some feedback on.
Interesting idea. It could be very appealing to some Atlanta area teams, being only a 5-6 hour drive. Also, we at FSA are looking for combined B/C tournaments and UF regionals would qualify for that.

There was an issue with Geomapping - it was supposed to be written by Unome, but that exam was not administered on the day of competition. The test that was administered will not be released because it did not come from Florida.
The test Unome originally wrote for States will be administered at either UF Regionals or the State tournament this year, pending any adjustments that may be needed.

Sad to be not participating (most likely), but great to see that the state tourney has switched to a more lavish campus. I'm sure that the quality of the tourney will improve greatly. Good luck to all competitors!
