Great session for Scientific! Thanks you
Anne V - Hopkinton
10:18
super useful info for the Fine Arts challenge. Thanks !
Anne Caron (Bedford)
10:22
Fantastic session for Engineering! So helpful
Mo Johnson
12:00
No balloons? Or no latex balloons?
Mo Johnson
15:25
Ignore above, I already have the answer
Hi - I am Eric from Melrose
18:52
Is it possible to request a preferred time slot?
Kristen Erickson-Corn
19:19
Can you please clarify that it is no balloons at all? Thanks.
MADI - Michelle Winnett
20:11
No latex balloons (you can use mylar) but no helium
MADI - Michelle Winnett
21:08
re preferred time slot - we have already reviewed conflicts and requests. If there is a true, previously unknown conflict, please email us after the schedule draft is reviewed
Hi - I am Eric from Melrose
22:42
so you can use ballons made of mylar, just not latex? Can they be inflated with air? BTW - thx for the heads up on conflicts. My son is getting his holy confirmation and they were really late with the dates. I will email info
MADI - Michelle Winnett
23:40
Mylar balloons filled with air is ok!!
CC Lee
24:39
Also we wanted to confirming re: lights- we can not request lights to turn off during the central challenge solution (for an illusion)?
Michelle Barrette
25:11
The paperwork is due a week before the tournament???
Clancey, Andover
25:12
It's very simple! Better than paper for my team!
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
25:17
is it live now?
Joanne
25:18
It's not that bad
MADI - Michelle Winnett
25:23
correct, the team may NOT request a change in the lighting in the room the of the performance
Anne Caron (Bedford)
25:26
Do the kids do the paperwork or the manager?
Jenn Cunningham (Bedford)
26:02
EL teams can dictate paperwork answers and TMs can transcribe
MADI - Michelle Winnett
26:11
The team manager must submit but in the words of the team
Anne Caron (Bedford)
26:19
Thanks!
Tammy Kayata
26:27
Question on space for tricky tales performance - it says prepare for 8x10 space - we have 7 kids - they barely fit with their illusion - is it really that small??
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
26:33
Suggestion: type the questions into a google doc and have them fill it out and then copy and paste to your account
Michelle Barrette
27:07
I’ve been managing teams for 7 years…never have we had paperwork ready a week early. We’re still figuring it out the day before! We already lost a week when Regionals were canceled. Another week lost!
MADI - Michelle Winnett
28:15
sorry MIchelle Barrette - we need the documents in advance so that we can get through the prep process
Stacie Harris
29:05
I agree with Michelle. My team will have a hard time with this. last min changes or items on expense list
Susanne
29:11
I just worry something may change if something breaks or fails a few days before the tournament.
Anne Caron (Bedford)
29:19
Can the photo have the kids masked, since we meet indoors and we have a mask mandate??
MADI - Michelle Winnett
29:29
we found that providing the documents earlier gives the team a chance to make fixes before tournament vs on site
Margaret
29:41
Is it possible to email or paste the link with the videos related to the paperworks? I know you showed where to find it, but somehow those links are giving me the same results
MADI - Michelle Winnett
29:57
sure, the photo can have the kids masked for their team pic!
Mo Johnson
30:38
I have 2 teams, am I only allowed to go into IC with one of them?
Susanne
30:47
So the photo taken at the tournament will have the kids masked because they are indoors?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
30:59
video re paperwork is on madikids.org under INFO tab and MANAGER INFO sub-tab
Margaret
31:33
When I go there, I don’t see it
Margaret
33:15
Is it the video in the Assistance with Uploading Videos and Paperwork for the Virtual Tournament section?
Mo Johnson
34:07
Margaret here is the link: http://www.madikids.org/index.php/early-access
Jennette-Acton Boxborough
34:09
Are teams assigned tables in the common space?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
34:11
Yes Margaret - Assistance with Uploading Videos and Paperwork for the Virtual TournamentTournament Paperwork in Mobile Scoring Video RecordingPasscode: MADI2022!
Tracey Johnson
34:28
Will parents be able to see CC? Siblings?
Anne V - Hopkinton
34:46
if the manager doesn't go with the team to IC, do we just go with the family to the commons ?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
34:52
We're saying yes - the "pod" is the teams immediate family
MADI - Michelle Winnett
35:05
Yes Anne - that would be a good plan
Anne V - Hopkinton
35:16
thanks !
Cheryl Testagrossa Millbury MA
35:43
will photos be digital files or mailed to us?
Lisa Brown-Holliston
35:52
Will there by a prep appraiser at one of these steps?
Beth Blackketter
36:03
So parents handle prop removal? I thought kids had to haul everything themselves.
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
36:08
What will we need a device for on tournament day?
Mo Johnson
36:28
I have 2 DI teams, am I allowed to go into IC with both or only one? (Different challenges, different levels)
Tracey Johnson
36:47
But the pods don’t extend to teams with siblings? Ie another team shouldn’t watch a team with some siblings
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
36:58
So not for paperwork?
Margaret
37:00
I think I have the link now. Thanks
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
37:12
will we have a wifi password then?
Debbie -Groton
37:13
masks in photographers photos?
Lisa Brown-Holliston
37:37
Will there be a single extension cord for each challenge site?
Mark Silver
37:47
Will power be available for a portable speaker if they are playing music?
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
38:02
Just thinking about like IC paperwork - will we need to attest there on a device or will we do that in advance or on paper day of
MADI - Michelle Winnett
38:21
IF the challenge states that electricity is provided, a single extension cord will be available for them to plug into
Debbie -Groton
38:44
Is the link for the expense report on MADI? Could not find it yesterday.
MADI - Michelle Winnett
38:52
re IC "declaration of independence" there is a process we will cover at pre-tournament meeting - next meeting
Chialin- Bedford
38:59
Will wifi be available?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
39:31
wifi-probably - we'll address that at the pre-tournament meeting next month
Becky-Grafton
39:59
Is it required that each team have an appraiser/volunteer this year?
Jennifer Ryan (Ash-West)
40:08
Last year, team managers could scribe the paperwork for middle school level teams. Are we able to do that again this year or does the team have to type in in themselves?
Debbie -Groton
40:19
I looked for it yesterday and just could not find it
Michelle Barrette
40:30
In the past, we just lost points for that kind of mistake. I’d rather more time for prep and paperwork than for the Appraisers to catch an error that the TM should have caught. Is that the only reason you need paperwork early?
Debbie -Groton
40:34
*expense report
Cheryl Testagrossa Millbury MA
40:41
can we include a script
Tammy Kayata
40:50
Ugh - this is more stressful than the challenge itself - so scared I’m going to miss something and screw it up for the kids 🤦‍♀️
rossi
41:44
i had two appraisers but they're not experienced...you don't want them i thought?
Tammy Kayata
41:53
Thanks Stephanie
Michelle Barrette
42:48
Talk more about the deadline for making paperwork changes.
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
42:52
So it will be editable after we submit…
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
42:53
?
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
42:55
If something needs changing the day before....and we change it the night before, should we tell the prep appraiser
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
43:08
Feel free to ignore this question if you will cover it later, but one of our favorite parts of the tournament is seeing all the other teams' solutions. Will anyone be filming the central challenge performances so teams can see other teams' performances?
Betsy Foley
43:51
yes, sand question at Kerry Evans!
Betsy Foley
43:59
*same
Jennifer Ryan (Ash-West)
44:37
When will the paperwork show up on the DI website? We will be away for school vacation week so we will have to start filling out paperwork Feb 12th weekend because we will not be meeting until march 5th after that
MADI - Michelle Winnett
45:12
let me find out Jennifer
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
45:23
I’m in now and see my paperwork available @Michelle
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
45:26
if we choose to have a mask and unmasked picture, do we have to pay for two pictures
Michelle Barrette
45:28
There is a fee for team photos, correct?
Jasper Rosenberg
46:18
How do you expect it to work if they have decorated their masks for their performance? Would they have to swap masks for the contest?
Aaron (he/him) - North Attleborough Coordinator
46:44
One child on our team has permission to wear a face shield instead of a mask. Will that be sufficient for tournament expectations?
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
48:17
To Challenge Me Inc memberships; we'll email the town shirt so everyone doesn't have to :-)
Michelle Barrette
48:23
Did you say photos are required even if we don’t plan on purchasing them or is it optional to stop for photos?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
48:53
Please have the team stop for photo even if you are not making a purchase
MADI - Michelle Winnett
49:38
re face shield - please email me directly so we can make a note
Diane Bugler
54:41
Brown school!
Mike Troisi
55:01
😀
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
55:39
it says no later than, but you can come a little earlier? up to a half hour earlier?
Maria Puglia
56:27
Is the schedule available on madi
Laurie Edwards
58:26
Please ignore if this info will come later, but when will the appraisers find out their schedule?
MADI - Michelle Winnett
59:08
appraiser info will be coming from the Affiliate Challenge Masters - sorry we don't have that info right now
Laurie Edwards
59:14
Ok thank you!
Rebecca - Lexington
59:49
Is there another page of the schedule coming? Our team isn’t on there though several other teams from our town/our challenge are.
Rebecca - Lexington
01:00:56
found it. never mind. thanks.
Heather Abourjaily
01:02:15

Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
01:03:53
also you may want to remind everyone that I think the time changes Sat night
Julie's iPhone
01:04:11
If I am managing more than one team and there is a time gap between challenges can we stay in the common room?
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
01:04:14
Oh shoot lol!
Stephanie Barry (Andover)
01:04:15
NICE CATCH Stephanie!!
Stephanie Clement (Andover)
01:04:29
+ 1 for all times lol?
Mo Johnson
01:04:38
Is section 4 of TDF required this year?
Hi - I am Eric from Melrose
01:04:58
I am wicked sorry to be late with the request for preferred time. I promise to make it up to whoever I swap with.
Mo Johnson
01:04:59
That’s the reflection one
Kate - Hopedale
01:05:02
Is it safe to assume that our assigned day is cast in stone, but the time might change?
Julie's iPhone
01:05:35
If I am managing more than one team and there is a time gap between challenges can we stay in the common room?
Mo Johnson
01:05:43
The challenge video said that section 4 is required this year, it never has been before. So it would be really helpful to know if it is actually required or just recommended
Mo Johnson
01:05:52
(Never before for states)
Mo Johnson
01:06:33
Thank you 🙂
Heather Abourjaily
01:07:26
My two teams are at almost the same time. is that going to be ok?
Mindy Gomes Casseres
01:07:54
What is expected for team introductions?
Stephanie Maze-Hsu (Andover)
01:08:57
but an assistant manager can go into IC with the 2nd team?
Heather Abourjaily
01:09:28
That's a good idea to use the assistant manager
Mo Johnson
01:10:19
Thank you both SO much for everything you have done to make this work, can’t imagine how hard this has been (on top of the usual insanity)
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
01:11:01
I will never forget the musical intro I saw a high school team from Ayer do once -- I forget the challenge. But it amazing!
Evans, Kerry (ELS-CMA)
01:11:41
*was amazing
Stephanie Barry (Andover)
01:12:07
It’s going to be AWESOME regardless.
Rebecca - Lexington
01:12:22
when will we find out if we’re at the high school or middle school? sorry if you already said.
Lisa Brown-Holliston
01:12:24
Bless you both for continuing to make this happen!
Stacie Harris
01:12:43
Thank You for your time!
Heather Abourjaily
01:12:50
Yes...thank you so much!!!
Lisa Brown-Holliston

Tammy Kayata
01:12:57
Yes- thank you!!!!
Rebecca - Lexington
