We are thrilled to announce that the 2020 Super 32 will be held October 24-25 at the MYRTLE BEACH CONVENTION CENTER!
One big change for this year is that there will not be an Elementary Division. We know that you are disappointed, and we are too. With everything going on at this time, we want to ensure we can still put on a high quality event while also following proper health protocols. Unfortunately, we could not see a way to hold the event to include all divisions and the same number of entries that we have in previous years.
We are so sorry and hope you can understand that we have done everything we can on our end to find a workable solution, and we believe we have.
"Info & Registration" links above have been updated with information regarding registration, format, etc.
