Announcement Concerning Covid-19 (part 2)
As of March 13, 2020 at 10:30AM
All Spring DI Colorado Events are Canceled
The health and safety of the children, volunteers and the staff involved in DI Colorado continues to be our top priority. Yesterday we made the decision to cancel our remaining regional and state tournaments. While it breaks our hearts for the kids and team managers who have spent so much time, energy and creativity on their solutions, we feel this is in the best interest of everyone involved.
Many of you have requested the opportunity to show your solutions to volunteers and to purchase pins and t-shirts.
The DI volunteer community of Regional Challenge Masters have all stepped up to view your solutions and provide some feedback to your students. We are asking any team in Colorado who would like to share a video performance with us to upload their performance to YouTube or to send us a video in an alternative way.
If you choose to upload to YouTube, you may make the video watchable with a non-public, private link. You, of course, have the opportunity to make them public as well, it’s up to your team.
Please send the link to Kate and I will share it with the Challenge Masters in your challenge area. They will provide feedback. This opportunity will be available until April 5, 2020
In the email you send to me, please include: Team Name, Team Number, Challenge and your region.
Also, we do have pins available for purchase, and if we get enough T-shirt orders, we will be able to provide those as well. Please look for more information early next week. We will have pricing information and photos of our pins and t-shirts included in that information.
All DI Colorado State Tournament fees and pre-purchases have been refunded. Please look to your credit card company to process those within 5 to 10 business days.
Thank you for all your support of Destination Imagination Colorado and our community of volunteers and students. We know this is a difficult time for you and your team. I hope you all remember that DI is always about the process – the trial and error, the mistakes, the successes, the friendships. There is no question you have made a meaningful difference to your teams this year, regardless of any tournaments, and will continue to do so in the years to come.
Please contact Kate Donelan for more information.
