Photos:  We’ll be taking lots of photos celebrating the great work your teams do.  However, if you have students who do not wish to be photographed, please have them complete the Photo Opt Out form available on the Resources page of the IHSBOB website and bring that to our attention when you arrive.


Please bring:  Your team (only the students listed on the coach survey for the qualifying team) and an adult coach.  Your own water bottle (we strive to be “green”).  We’ll have water on hand.  New/gently used book for the book swap.  A non-messy snack (it's a long time until lunch on your way home)!


Please DON’T bring:  Stuff (there will be over 100 people attending and space is at a minimum), cell phones/MP3 players should be out of sight and sound.  We wish we had space for spectators, but we don’t.  Please limit attendees to participants, coaches, drivers, chaperons.

About food....   Please plan to eat lunch after the competition on your way home.  We realize some students can't go that long without food and are welcome to bring "not messy" snacks to eat during the improv.  MHS is a NUT-FREE school, so please nothing containing nuts.


Parking:  Please park on the circle drive in front of the school on 2nd Avenue.  The entrance to the library is just inside the school doors facing 2nd Avenue (look for orange signs).  Overflow parking will be designated and emailed to you shortly before competition.


Travel safely and BE READY TO BATTLE!
