Fall 2012 Competition Schedule (CHANGE)


Please note that Pride of the Northwest, hosted by Grants Pass High School, has moved to the 13th of October (originally 10/27). This was due to an unexpected issue with facilities availability. We thank Grants Pass for their flexibility and apologize for any ensuing conflicts this presents to members. The circuit does not anticipate any additional changes to this fall’s competition schedule. The original post of the schedule has been modified to reflect the change, and is presented below.
