Senior Championships 2014
by Elaine Thwaites - Friday, 24 January 2014, 12:01 PM
Regionals for this year are being held earlier than usual (mid - late March) as the national competition is being held in May. I thought I'd flick through an email now to flag this, and ask a couple of favours:

1. If you know of any events happening around that time (athletics, productions etc) that might cause a conflict could you please let me know! We want to pick a date for Regionals that suits as many people as possible

2. If your school might be interested in hosting please get in touch. We will require around 25 classrooms to run the tournament (so that we can have prep rooms) but might be able to make do with fewer rooms if necessary. We really appreciate the assistance from schools in terms of hosting, as without hosts we wouldn't be able to run tournaments like this. If you require further information please let me know.
