Welcome to
Region One

OK, so all the plans of merging Region 15 into Region 1 were stopped when R15 folks reformed their Board and decided to continue operating.


Region 1 started meeting again, still at Denny’s now 1st Thursday of the month. 
However, we’re still in COVID recovery mode and with only 5 teams registered, it was decided to accept Meredith’s offer and do the Region 1 Tournament at Region 16 (Beachwood High School, 25100 Fairmount Blvd, Beachwood, OH 44122) on the 1st Saturday in March. 

How will this work?

While we will be at R16, R1 teams will compete only against R1 teams. You will still need to supply appraisers and volunteers as usual. It appear both our RCM-A and RCM-C will both be working the R16 Tournament as will other familiar R1 faces.
As of now, it appears they will probably be doing a “low-contact” type tournament. There are various flavors of this and more details will be forthcoming here.  

We are offering free info sessions online for superintendents, educators, school principals and administrators, after-school providers, and parents who would like to learn more about Destination Imagination and starting a team.
