The 2018 NYDI Central Regional Showcase will take place in March, 2018 (date and location TBD).
Team Managers should review ALL of the following documents:
- Our 7 Secrets to a Successful Tournament presentation.
- Travel Guide for Teams (available in February), which has very important information about procedures on the day of the tournament.
- Team Manager Tournament Tips
- A Typical Tournament Day
- Picking up and Understanding Your Scores.
Please remember that you may not enroll in the Showcase until your Team Registration is complete.
All teams must pick up their packet at check-in before proceeding to their tournament venue. There will also be a form checker there to help you determine that you have the correct paperwork for your Challenge.
It is not necessary for the entire team to go to Check-In. Younger teams should come with a Team Manager and one Team Member. Older teams can just send one Team Member.
Each Challenge has its own requirements concerning when teams must report to the Prep Area. Consult the Travel Guide for Teams for details.
Teams, supporters and spectators are all encouraged to see as many Central Challenge performances as possible. Come early, stay late, and support as many teams as you can.
Please note that Instant Challenge is not open to spectators. Only the Team and a single Team Manager may enter the Instant Challenge area. Teams are not allowed to discuss their experience in Instant Challenge with anyone outside the team until after Global Finals.
There will NOT be food available for purchase at the event site. There are many restaurants just a short drive away or that will deliver pizza or other food or you may pack your own food. It is your responsibility to make your own arrangements for food for your team.
The Awards Ceremony will take place starting at approximately 12:00pm.
As this is a showcase, all teams that present a solution will advance to the NYDI Affiliate Tournament in Binghamton on April 7, 2017.
