Agenda

Again we will be implementing block schedules for age groups.  When the high school is competing in qualification matches the middle school can do skills and judging. During the following schedule block the roles are reversed. We plan to hold 6 qualification rounds for each age group.

This is a tentative schedule and will most likely change once we establish a match frequency.
