THANK YOU TO PENOHIO'S 2018
WELCOMING WORDS FROM PENOHIO'S REGISTRAR
I'm excited to meet you, and welcome you to PenOhio! By building bonds among great teachers, students and schools, we can inspire better writing across Ohio!
One of my jobs is to help get your teams seated for competition. And many times, that can mean changing locations, or making an accommodation. Up front, I want to encourage you to reach out an connect with PenOhio to let us know what you need and how we can best serve you. We promise to do our best to meet your needs.
A tip as you are starting out (learned from the school of hard knocks!), be sure to identify the people who will accompany your teams to tournaments as (1) judges; and (2) adult supervisors. It helps to make sure you have extra hands on tournament day. It really is a major experience for the students.
If there's anything I can do to add value to your PenOhio membership, please reach out. I will be happy to connect with you!
Good luck this year. And above all, enjoy it! PenOhio is a blast!!

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL SCHOOLS: REGIONAL SITE HOSTS STILL NEEDED!!
PenOhio Member Schools,
One BIG CHALLENGE we still face is to quickly confirm site hosts for the balance of the tournaments noted on the grid as "TBD". If you see the date and location as "TBD" that means that PenOhio has many proposals pending with schools and institutions asking them to host, but as yet, we do not have a confirmed location for that particular location.
How can you help?? (1) If your school can host a particular tournament, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. (2) If you know of a school who can host, please contact them directly, and make that request. Please do not send us suggestions on other schools to call, as we are now overloaded with tasks to complete for the upcoming tournaments.
If PenOhio does not get confirmed sites for tournaments, schools will have to be moved to the next nearest location(s) to compete. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause. However, the league is dependent upon schools working together, and that includes facilities making themselves available for competitions.
Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to a fantastic year ahead!!
