Meals and more…

Good afternoon. Coaches letter went out yesterday, but there are still questions coming in on two basic points. So here is the clarification:

  1. Team pictures for opening ceremony. No team pictures will be used this year for the ceremony. You will need to have your team picture taken when you arrive at the church – this is for the award plaques. No sent in pictures will be used this year. So make sure to allow time for getting this done.
  2. Meals during the Festival.The church will be serving lunch on both Friday and Saturday. We are asking that you do NOT leave the church for meals. Quizzing each day will start back up as quickly as it can after lunch, so we want to make sure everyone stays on-site.
    1. Lunch tickets will be available for purchase during check-in on Thursday.  This year, the church will be providing free lunches to everyone under 18 years old on Friday. You will still need to get tickets for everyone in your group. Those under 18 will have one color. You will buy meals for all over 18.
    2. For Saturday you will buy tickets for everyone.
    3. The cost for meals for those over 18 on Friday is $6.00, and Saturday it will be $6.00 for everyone.

Hope this information helps. Tell your friends and family to sign up for the blog to get late breaking information.
