California has Split in to two State Organizations! For more information visit the NorCal Association website Here
As of August 1, 2018, California Odyssey of the Mind has split into two separate organizations, NorCal and SoCal. The regions in NorCal will be SF Bay, Silicon Valley, Delta, Redwood, North State Shasta, and Capital Gold. The regions in SoCal will be LA Basin, South Central Valley, Inland Empire, and Coastal. This decision was made to address the geographic difficulties many teams had in attending the state tournament. We are excited about this new phase for Odyssey of the Mind in the great state of California!
