Welcome to
the New Region One

So before COVID there had been some discussion of cutting down or combining some of OKC’s 11 Regions. At the end of 2019 Tournament year the Executive Boards of both Region 7 and Region 15 all resigned from their positions leaving both Regions leaderless. Finding no replacements, the OKC Executive Board Decided to split Region 7 north/South between Regions 10 and 12. Meanwhile, to the East it was decided to merge Region 15 into Region 1. 
Then Covid hit and things went in the crapper, Ohio not as bad as some affiliates but still, we lost enough teams that we ended up having 2 Virtual Regional Tournaments. 
So now we’re into the start of Tournament Year 21-22. 
We need to get this new region organized and off the ground. 
So we’re trying to get a listing of R15 folks so we can get an Agenda out to everyone for a reorganizational meeting.
We also need to get lists of school districts as well as ideas of how we’re going to administer this much larger region.

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.
