Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
12:29
Yay Kathy R!
Jodie K. Holway - Westford - she/her
15:03
We were 3rd biggest number of teams -- was that only MADI massaachusetts, or was it the whole new england region that participated in the end-of-season event?
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
16:14
That 144 count was for MADI only!! there were about 250 in the New England (DINE tournament)
Stephanie Clement, Andover DI
17:12
Thank YOU BOTH as well and all who helped run the program.
Jodie K. Holway - Westford - she/her
17:30
Yes THANK YOU BOTH, we could not possibly do this without you.
WGriffin
17:42
Karin & Michelle, your efforts are appreciated.
Henry - Hopkinton
18:24
How many teams went to the global finals from MA?
Jodie K. Holway - Westford - she/her
20:02
Yes we went to Globals! (it was opt-in, not competitive)
Caroline Stone
20:06
YES to virtual global finals!!!!!
Stephanie Clement, Andover DI
20:09
We did too :)
Mo Johnson - Andover Team Manager
20:25
Globals was awesome! My team had a blast.
Dave: TEC - Worcester
20:39
We went to Globals
Caroline Stone - Tenacre Country Day Boston Suburbs DI
21:18
Wow embarrassing sorry guys!!!
Michelle Barrette (Medfield DI)
21:25
I had two teams from Medfield participate in Globals and my 4th graders came in 3rd place!
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
21:27
no worries!!
Caroline Stone - Tenacre Country Day Boston Suburbs DI
23:10
Can teams do the Digital Open and also go to Globals? Is globals virtual?
Henry - Hopkinton
23:37
We had two teams went to global finals from Hopkinton. Just wondering how many others went. Thanks for the response.
Laurie-Andover Challenge Me Inc.
23:59
Andoverhad 9 teams
Laurie-Andover Challenge Me Inc.
24:26
that went to globals
Caroline Stone - Tenacre Country Day Boston Suburbs DI
24:27
When will tournament dates be finalized
Dave: TEC - Worcester
25:32
This is my first time hearing about this. Can I still register my team?
Caroline Stone - Tenacre Country Day Boston Suburbs DI
25:52
AWESOME! Ok good point on the 2
Stephanie Clement, Andover DI
26:05
Will we still be able to switch tournaments if there’s a conflict, correct? I have a team of all drama tech crew high schoolers and sometimes “Fest” conflicts.
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
29:00
Re; Stephanie's question - we'll address that in a moment - thanks!!
Maria Donovan
32:38
Why have bigger tournaments when we are still in COVID sensitive times? Distances are farther too.
Kate Poitras, Hopedale DI
36:54
So, when we choose the date do we know the location?
Kate Poitras, Hopedale DI
37:22
Just curious how far teams will have to travel, as that is a big factor for some.
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
37:22
But we won't know the location of the tournament we're choosing by Dec. 15, right? We just choose the date.
Holly Munsie, Bedford DI
37:25
So the teams in our town may all be going to different tournaments?
Eric Craft - Shrewsbury PS
37:48
Are we going to discuss closing ceremonies?
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
38:05
we will discuss closing ceremonies
Becky & Shane, Grafton DI
41:27
So does this mean fewer teams will move on to state or will there be more places that move on to state?
Jodie K. Holway - Westford - she/her
43:29
I have an odd situation: only if one kid's grades improve by December, their parents will allow them to rejoin our team. If we register by Dec 15 without them, then it's too late to add them before Jan 9th?
Mo Johnson - Andover Team Manager
43:48
Does that mean if it goes virtual then kids doing end or improv would not have winners and do states or globals?
Mo Johnson - Andover Team Manager
43:54
^eng
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
45:21
Re: Jodie kid may be added back to team after 12/15 - we recommend you list the kiddo as a team member - easier to drop a team member than to add
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
45:53
recording of tonights meeting will be on the madikids.org website under 2021-2022 season tab - will be available tomorrow
Jodie K. Holway - Westford - she/her
48:29
WE LOVE IMPROV!
Mo Johnson - Andover Team Manager
48:43
So those could become non-competitive?
Caroline Stone - Tenacre Country Day Boston Suburbs DI
49:08
Well done on putting something together under impossible conditions!!
Dave: TEC - Worcester
49:21
Glad to hear you are not cutting improv
Deb Groton/Dunstable
49:23
Could we have teams submit a video of their final run through so we have the option to see ones that we missed?
Dave: TEC - Worcester
52:09
It is possible to do improv through video
Tracey Johnson
54:25
Could the closing ceremony be in a football stadium if the weather is ok at that point?
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
55:06
multiple tents.
Jennifer Donahue - Holliston DI
55:08
Do you have a location for the state tournament? Will it still be WPI?
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
56:52
Yes, much better virtual
Kate Altman Sudbury
56:56
Yes!
Diane Bugler Peabody
56:59
yes
Lydia Booth - Townsend DI
57:49
I missed the in person trainings last year but virtual is perfect for now.
Eric Craft - Shrewsbury DI
58:03
Will you record the training so people can watch later?
Kathy R
58:10
I have to go in a few minutes but I did want to ask - are you looking for only experienced appraisers? someone I know was interested in appraising but she's never done it, but she's been a manager for several years
Anne - Hopkinton DI
58:19
Nov 15 is fine
Jessica Cullen- Epstein Hillel School (Marblehead)
58:25
Yes to October please!
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
58:33
YES!! everything that we do virtual (trainings, etc) we will record and put online
Deb Groton/Dunstable
58:34
Nov should be fine
Diane Bugler Peabody
58:44
Just recruiting now
Tracey Johnson
58:53
Will you record & post the New Team Mgr Training? I'm one of 2 and my partner missed, and we didn't do it last year at all, so the refresher would be helpful.
Leah Walton, Bedford DI
58:58
October would be great!
Rupali Sharma
59:00
Can high school students serve as assistant team managers? Can they attend the NoV. 15th training?
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
59:13
I know I'm not an official question answerer, but appraisers don't need experience. They can indicate how much experience they have when they register and be assigned roles accordingly. At least, that's how it's been in the past.
Mindee Greenberg, Epstein Hillel School
59:55
This is our school's first time participating in DI with new team managers, so the earlier the better.
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
01:00:30
October for new team manager training - noted!!
Nicole - Innovations, Tyngsboro
01:00:30
What about Appraiser training?
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
01:00:55
Appraiser training will be addressed in January
Kate Poitras, Hopedale DI
01:02:43
Can you just go back to the question about how many teams will advance to states? Will only 3 teams from each regional tournament advance to states (from each challenge)? So only 6-9 teams max from each level/challenge will compete at States? Am I getting that right?
Deb Groton/Dunstable
01:03:56
one in Oct and have the video avail
Diane Bugler Peabody
01:03:58
November, not sure iif I will have people in October
Kathy R
01:04:00
not sure we're ready for October so I saw both
Lavanya Thiagarajan- Shrewsbury PS
01:04:10
November as well please
Anne - Hopkinton DI
01:04:11
I will need one in Nov 15 because I am still in the process of recruiting. But a recording of the Oct session might be good.
Stephen Witzig - Dartmouth
01:04:28
Dartmouth won’t be ready for an Oct. TM meting, but if it is recorded and shared, that will work. We would be ready for Nov. meeting.
Kathy R
01:04:40
agree October recorded!
Kate Poitras, Hopedale DI
01:04:42
I’m just starting recruiting new managers. I have no idea what we’ll need, so I’d say both.
Kathy R
01:04:56
gotta jump off. michelle i'll be in touch
Laurie-Andover Challenge Me Inc.
01:05:46

Jennifer Donahue - Holliston DI
01:07:46
My teams like to have a due date for their work. The earliest date for a regional tournament would be March 5th, correct? If it goes virtual, they would have an additional week to video their solution after that date. Do I have that right?
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD
01:08:20
yes Jennifer - that is the plan ^
Michelle Winnett - MADI AD

01:22:49
Is there a way to look for teams for kids who are interested. I have a 8th grader in Shrewsbury trying to find a team. How do I go about finding the team?
Diane Bugler Peabody
01:22:54
Yeah!
Kerry Evans, Harvard
01:23:18
