It’s Tournament Registration Time!

Vermont odyssey of the Mind Tournament Registration deadline is January 20, 2017.
(Coaches:  Check with your Coordinator to see who will be doing the registering of teams and to verify your membership number.)
You will need some information at hand when you register:
  • School name and membership number
  • Team member names and grades
  • Coach name and contact information
  • Any scheduling conflicts (i.e. a coach with multiple teams, or team members on multiple teams, etc)
  • Other issues (allergies, disabilities, etc.)
  • Judge name and contact information  (Every team must supply a judge who will come to a judges’ training on March 4, 9:00 – 12:30 and then for the entire day of the tournament on March 18.  Either you or the judge must fill out the Judge Registration form.  In lieu of providing a judge, teams may pay a $50 Judge Waiver fee.  We much prefer the judge as it takes many bodies to run the tournament!)
