Among 40+ teams competing in each of these Division 1 Problems, three teams from Arlington have lots to be proud of.  A huge thank you to them for all their hard work to get that far in the competition.  We’re all so proud of all the efforts of the students, coaches, and judges.  Thanks so much, and congratulations again!

NOVA EAST STATE TOURNAMENT RESULTS

Yesterday, the teams from our region participated in the state tournament at Manassas Park and represented our region beautifully.  In addition to our pride in having so many wonderful OMERs at the competition, we are excited to announce that a few teams were recognized at the awards ceremony.  Two teams placed third, MacArthur Elementary School’s classics team and Swanson Middle School’s vehicle team.  Two teams placed second, Glebe Elementary School’s Problem 2 and Problem 3 teams.  Last, but not least, one team placed first, the Long Branch Elementary School’s Problem 1 team. That team and the teams from Glebe qualified for World Finals at Michigan State at the end of May.  Congratulations for all the teams from our region who participated in the event!

LAST MINUTE REMINDERS TO COACHES

1.  Please remember to bring all your paperwork (Coach’s ticket from the tournament newsletter, 4 copies each of the style forms and required list & 1 copy each of the cost form and outside assistance form).  Although NO forms are needed for Primary.  Emergency Forms should be with each coach.

2.  There is a map of Parking Lots.  Parking is always tight, so leave plenty of time to drop off props and park.  The map shows you where all the lots are.

West Potomac Map v2

3.  Pack your patience.  Your positivity and flexibility will help ease the stress of the day, so remember that this is meant to showcase your kids’ creativity and problem solving skills and should be fun.  Do not focus on scores as much as how the team feels about what they accomplished.  Enjoy the experience.

4.  Remember Nova East Odyssey of the Mind is run completely by volunteers all working to make this a great day for the kids!
