2004 Vegas Tournament March 2004

by Greg House Viva Las Vegas Classic IV was held on March 26-27, 2004 at Mountain View A/G in Las Vegas, NV. Division I had at least one representative from every region in the country, offering high-level and broad-based competition. The questions for Division I were at a level somewhere between Regionals and Nationals. Divisions II & III each had their own questions written at a level appropriate for them. All teams are listed and top quizzers are listed.

Due to overlapping schedules with Fine Arts in a couple of districts, our Division III (Novice) had fewer teams this year than in previous years. Both Division III teams played in a schedule with all of the Division II teams; however, scores and rankings were separated for awards.

Based on the feedback, everyone had a great time and the competition was outstanding. The only playoff to be held was between Bothell and Fort Worth for 3rd place in Division I.

For those who did not attend, you missed out, but I hope you will be able to join us next year - March 18-19, 2005.
