Destination 2001!



February 2001

Directors message

Our teams are back from Winter Break and are now busy preparing for the New York Regional Tournaments! We can’t wait to see your creativity in action!  I have just a few reminders for Team Managers:


v     Don’t forget to register for your Regional Tournament! 


v     Remember to check the Clarifications pages often!  Your team is responsible for being aware of all clarifications posted for your challenge.  Don’t skip this important step!  You can also request clarifications for your team.  To do so, you must establish a clarifications account using your passport number.  Follow the instructions on the clarifications page.  The deadline for requesting clarifications is Feb. 15th!


v     Team Managers, try to practice Instant Challenges at every team meeting.  Instant Challenges are fun and they help your team learn to work together more effectively.  Visit our Resources page for links to FREE Instant Challenge sites on the web.  You can also purchase an Instant Challenge CD-ROM from Destination Imagination.  Click here for more details.


v     Don’t forget to read, read, and READ your challenge and the Rules of the Road!  There are many facets to a Destination Imagination challenge, and you don’t want to miss something important.  Your teams should be reviewing the challenge and Rules of the Road often.


v     Prepare your team for tournament by reviewing with them the tournament procedures for Instant Challenge and your selected team challenge.  Follow the links below to view the procedures:
Instant Challenge    Mystery Loves Company    Triplicity
Anonymously Yours    DInamic Improv    IncreDIble Tech Effects


v     And, last, but certainly not least, REMEMBER TO HAVE FUN!  As tournament day approaches, many teams experience the crunch of trying to complete their solution, and this can cause frustration and anxiety for team members and team managers.  Take time to play as a team.  Destination Imagination is about having FUN while learning to work together and express ourselves creatively.  Have a movie night, go to a park, play a game – do something to unwind and just enjoy being together!
