Finally, the moment a lot of Texans have been waiting for: WSC in TEXAS!!!! You only need three kids for a team, so costs will be way down; for those of you in Dallas or other parts of the state where it's hard to find a ride to Houston, try to find some fundraising ideas. Also, greyhounds are pretty cheap biggrin.gif

It's definitely happening. I should know, I'm hosting it. I have the long to do list to prove it! Daniel owes me big time!

I hope to see everyone there! I am really excited to host it and for PHS to field our first ever WSC teams! Let me know if you have any questions! smile.gif

Do all the events take place on that Saturday?
I'd love some feedback from coaches who have fielded a team. Given the decade it's taken to figure out decathlon, I am pondering this.

yes, they do. PM me your email address and I will send you the sample schedule we came up with. smile.gif

It's not as hard as I thought it would be. I just met with my kids and formed teams a few days ago, and gave them the material. It took me a bit to understand the format, but I do now. And if there's anything I don't understand, I will just bug Daniel incessantly until he tells me what I need to know. tongue.gif
