The latest information for your Destination Imagination team!
Welcome Back!
Welcome to the 2019-2010 Destination Imagination tournament year. We look forward to see all of you and your team members again.

Tournament Date Information
We are currently waiting to hear from Douglas County School District on a date for our tournament. We have asked for two dates March 7, 2020 is our first choice and February 29, 2020 as a second choice. As soon as we have a confirmed date we will let you know.

Brand New DI Web site
Over the summer a band of creatives took on the task of creating a entirely new web site for not only the state but for each region as well. While parts of it are still a work in progress (eg: instant challenge page) the bulk of it is ready to go. Here you'll find helpful hints for team managers, a page for parents and all the important calendar dates. The South Metro page will have info for just our South Metro teams. It will be up dated regularly.

Regional Director x3
We decided it was better to share the workload of Regional Director than having Connie carry the bulk of the job. As large as South Metro has become it's now an overwhelming task for one person. Last year Kayla Steffens stepped in to assist, but this year we decided to use divided and conquer method. While each of us can help you with anything you need, individually we are focusing on specific areas.
Connie Ackerman will continue to focus on the tournament specifically. Scheduling, working with the host school district, making sure your membership, background checks etc are in order.
Kayla Steffens is focusing her time and energy on recruiting new teams. If you need a parent night arranged, or would like to have us talk with your admin, please contact her!
Debi Tipton will be in charge of communication. We want to make sure you have the most current information for your teams. She will updating our web site with information and getting these newsletter out to you.

Again, each of us is available to help you.

Overall, the RDx3 Team will be working together to put on the very best tournament and to make sure you have a great DI year!
