I don't know if that's a good idea yet, online tournaments are not sanctioned by NSO.

I would recommend first finding the actual policy regarding virtual tournaments so you are aware of what it specifically says. (Unfortunately it's been a few years since the subject has come up so I've forgotten where the statement is located...)

I think that is only for events that are based on the computer, not the tournament.

So are there any known plans for a representative from SoCal at the National Tournament?

SoCal will not be looking for an alternative to host the 2020 Southern California State Tournament. Since there would not be a fair way to select teams to represent Southern California at the National Tournament, Southern California will not be sending any teams to the 2020 National Tournament.

Sucks for Troy and all the other teams who have been working hard.

Indeed very sad for all those affected. Please stay safe and remember that all of us on the forums are with you. If you ever want to chat about science—or life—we're always here with you!

I wish I could give everybody from SoCal some nats stickers, but not all the stickers in the world can cure this misfortune. Sending you all some North Carolina love instead <3
