A word from the Tournament Director…

Hello! I hope this message finds you and your teams well and eagerly anticipating the tournament next weekend, March 12th. I know that I can speak for the entire NoVA North Board when I say that we cannot wait to see what the teams have in store for us next weekend. It kind of feels like Christmas…or at least our version of it!

As you may know, Odyssey of the Mind is completely run by volunteers, from the board, to the school coordinators and coaches, to the judges and tournament assistants. We absolutely cannot run this tournament without the many volunteers who have stepped up, and we appreciate everyone’s help to make the tournament a successful and enjoyable day for the teams who have worked so hard to get there.

This year, we are without the help of our neighbors in NoVA South, as our two tournaments are being held the same day due to hosting-facility conflicts. Therefore, it is critically important that all of the registered teams confirm with their judge and two-hour volunteer that they will fulfill their responsibilities on tournament day. We are running “lean,” and we appreciate all that you can do to make sure we have (excited, enthusiastic, cheerful) trained judges on-site to ensure that teams have the most amazing experience possible.

Thank you for your attention. We look forward to seeing everyone in just under a week!!
