Also on our schedule, but new this year, is a Style and Spontaneous Workshop to be held January 10, 2015, 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon at Mater Christi School, Burlington. This event is open to teams and coaches and is separate from the Spontaneous Scrimmage scheduled for later that day. Registration for this event is separate from the scrimmage registration. This scrimmage is limited to the first 12 teams that register. You may register by going to the following link:
Style and Spontaneous Workshop
Participants in this workshop will spend the first two hours learning and practicing skills in spontaneous problem solving. After a short break, they will then spend an hour exploring the elements of style. These sessions will be conducted by Lesley Adams, a World Finals winning coach, Problem 5 Problem Captain and Northern Regional Director, and Patty Baumann, a World Finals Style judge, Problem 1 Head Judge, and VCQ Board Member.
If a team registers for both the morning (workshop) and afternoon (scrimmage) sessions, they should make their own lunch plans (BYO or leave and return).
