IRC League 7 : 10 Qualifiers done!



November was a crazy month! With 8 back to back Qualifiers for IRC League 7, which involved travelling across Northern India, the organizing team was drop dead tired but equally happy and satiated!


We had mentioned about the upcoming Qualifiers in our last post. The meticulous planning and relentless support by the IRC Team helped in organizing all of them spectacularly well! Each Qualifier saw participation by teams in huge numbers. We had to close registrations a day before to avoid a mad rush on the spot. 

We are happy to have found our final 120 teams who shall now be competing in the nationals. The results of all the Qualifiers can be found here

And like they say, there's never a lull. The team is now neck deep in work to plan and prepare for the IRC Nationals. With each passing year, IRC League is getting bigger and better , raising the bar and exceeding the set goals. We shall leave no stone unturned to make it a spectacular show!

Wish us luck and see you there ! :)
