EuroFest 2016: An Overseas Odyssey
The deadline to apply for a spot to attend EuroFest 2016 is Monday, November 30. For the first time in our region's history, Magic Center teams will have the chance to travel to Poland for Odyssey of the Mind EuroFest 2016, which will take place April 29-May 4 in Gdansk.
This noncompetitive event allows teams to showcase their Long-Term solutions and practice Spontaneous while interacting with teams from other cultures. All interested teams may apply, but this opportunity is best suited to teams that previously have competed in Odyssey tournaments.
Full details are posted on the EuroFest 2016 page on our website.
December Workshop Date Change
Don't forget that the December Spontaneous Workshop has been moved to Saturday, December 12. The time and location — 1 to 4 p.m. at Lee Middle School, 1201 Maury Road, Orlando — will remain the same.
To register for the December or January Spontaneous Workshops, complete the form on the Dates page and send in your pre-payment. Cost is $5 per participating team member, and you will be notified when your pre-payment has been received.
We turned away teams when we hit capacity on the November workshop yet had teams that did not pay and did not show. For this reason, we will be more strict on enforcing pre-payment for December. Your understanding and compliance to the policy is much appreciated.
