New England is the newest region to adopt the Michigan District model, and our school is slated (90% certain at this point) to host one of next year’s New England District competitions.
I would love to get in touch with mentors and coaches from high school teams that have hosted district events, because I have so many questions that only you could answer.
So, whoever has been part of the planning and execution of this unique “semi-hosting” of a district event, I’d be grateful if you could graciously drop me a PM, or respond here, or we can take it to email, whatever.
The first, most broad, question is: how much of the entire production is your school responsible for (including costs); and aside from food concessions, what other things can you do to turn this into a positive thing for the school and school district (we need to make this look good for our board of education–the final hurdle).
Plus, what would you warn us (the school) about beforehand.
A hundred megathanks (100 MTx) in advance. I hope to hear from you. And pardon the same post appearing verbatim in the MAR district forum!:o
