If your team received an ACE (Advancing to Championship) certificate - your team is invited to that specific District Championship.   


However,  in order to have an equitable number of advancing slots per tournament,  the total number of advancing teams does not completely fill that specific championship.  Thus there are between 1 and 6 slots available.    



Silicon Valley  District Championship
tbd - The Play Space QT 11/15,
organized by WarriorBorgs
Peninsula District Championship


Capital District Championship
tbd - Intel Folsom Saturday
tbd - Napa



I am still waiting from results from several QTs but I put placeholders in for those QTs until I get those results.   The above list is the current  (as of 11/25 10:30pm) results for the teams that will receive an invite to their respective district championship tournament.   The lottery results will be expanded as teams decline.  


If your team received an advancing certificate (ACE) or is listed above and knows that the team will not be participating at the District Championship, please have the primary coach send me  (fll at playingatlearning dot org) an email letting me know.
