What is the qualifier?
This is a Midwest Zone Championship event that can be attended by anyone going to JOs or not. It doubles as a qualification tournament for the National tournament in California (Session 1 & 2). If a team doesn't qualify for Session 1 or 2, we will still attend session 3 in Dallas, Texas. Our goal this year though is to make it to Southern California.
