Well, it’s time for training. Saturday, January 25th is the training at Saint Elmo Gifted School in Columbus. If you are a new judge, we will start check-in at 8:30 with your first session at 9:00. Check-in for experienced judges starts at 9:30 with your general session at 10:05. Your session with your problem captain starts at 10:30. We will finish between 2:00 and 2:30; it depends on your problem captain.
Saturday, February 1st is the training at Trickum Middle School in Lilburn. The schedule will be the same.
Maps to each training site is on the front quick links section of our website, www.georgiaodyssey.org/home/maps
I will send out another reminder next week before the Trickum training. If you attend the Saint Elmo training, just ignore the next email.
Step one for check-in is to confirm your information, correct anything wrong, and get your judging assignment. Proceed to the table with your tournament schedule and check-in with the Board member at the table. Sign in by your name and collect a problem book.
Please don’t forget your lunch or snack. We will not have time to leave for lunch. Saint Elmo is a new site for us, so I am not sure if we can eat in the classroom or if we must take a scheduled lunch break in the cafeteria as we do at Trickum.
I look forward to seeing you in the near future. Thank you for volunteering.
