SAK Spontaneous Workshop
The SAK Comedy Lab Spontaneous Workshop — which will be held Sunday, Jan. 24, from 1 to 2 p.m. (doors open at 12:30) at SAK Comedy Lab, 29 S. Orange Ave., Orlando — is full, and we have started a wait list.
Registered teams MUST pay the $12-per-ticket cost in advance or their registration will be deleted and their spots offered to teams on the wait list. For payment instructions, please see the Dates page.
To join the wait list, complete the form on the Dates page.
January Spontaneous Workshop
The last regular spontaneous workshop before the regional tournament will be held Saturday, Jan. 9, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Lee Middle School, 1201 Maury Rd., Orlando. The cost is $5 per attending team member, paid in advance.
Because of space constraints, we must cap attendance at 42 PAID teams. To date, 21 teams have registered, and 14 of those have paid. This workshop always has a wait list, and, if necessary, we will bump registered teams that have not prepaid to accommodate teams on the wait list.
For pre-payment instructions or to register, see the Dates page.

Contests: Artwork Design
and Creative Hats
Magic Center is running two contests to give you more avenues for expressing your creativity.
First, we are seeking artwork to support the theme of the 26th Annual Regional Tournament: "There Is No Place Like the Magic Center." Designs should reflect Wizard of OMER (Oz) inspiration. For full details, see the Artwork Design Contest entry form. The contest is open to artists of all ages (including adults), and the submission deadline is Friday, Jan. 15.
Second, we again are running the Creative Hat Contest. Anyone affiliated with the team or membership — including coaches, parents, friends, teachers and relatives — may assist with the hat. Entries are brought to the regional tournament, along with a completed copy of the entry form, for judging.
Mandatory Judges Training
and Coaches Meeting
Make sure your calendars are marked for Saturday, Feb. 6, the date of MANDATORY Judges Training and Coaches Meeting.
All judges must attend the training, and cheese or pepperoni pizza will be provided for lunch. If they prefer, judges may bring their own lunch.
One coach from each team must attend the coaches meeting.
Any changes to your judge must go to Regional Director Anna Long prior to training (Feb. 6). Worker changes can be done on the date of the tournament, but new workers must know the name of the worker they are replacing when signing in and reporting to their assignment.
