Coaches: Just a reminder that the judge representing your team at the regional meet needs to be registered online and must indicate that they are representing your team by putting in the school’s membership number and the email address of the coach of the team they are representing. This is imperative so teams may register. Make sure you register your judge and team by Wednesday, January 16th, or your team will be charged a $25 late fee/week as a penalty for late registration and they are not guaranteed a slot of the schedule competing in the problem of their choice. If you are having difficulty finding a judge, you many want to:
1. Let potential judges know that they may attend training in another region if they have a conflict on Feb. 9th when Nova East will hold our training. They must, however, contact us in advance, so we can let the other region know and let them know the problem they are to be trained on. The other training that’s close by is:
Nova North Odyssey of the Mind
3033 Chain Bridge Road
Oakton, VA 22124
Date: Saturday, February 23, 2019
Time: Runs from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
2. Appeal to teachers at your school. It is a one and a half day commitment, but with the principal’s permission, teachers can get up to 13 hours of recertification credit. Letters are available upon request at the regional meet on March 9th.
