11/3, Saturday, First tournament

The team has been posted here!

Congratulations to everyone who made it and many thanks to the nearly 140 of you who tried out. It’s never easy choosing from so many of you (especially when there’s a limit to how many we can take), and if you didn’t make it, we hope you will consider trying out again next year. We unfortunately had to make a lot of difficult cuts!

To those who made it, four things:

1) The first full team meeting is Tuesday afternoon at 2:45p in D219. This meeting is mandatory and will last until 4:00p — if there are any problems with attending, you *must* contact Mr. Mehta and your Category Leader(s).

2) All Category Leaders will meet on Monday afternoon at 2:45p in D219.

3) We need to make sure you are registered on this website so you can eventually sign up for rehearsal times. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post using your name and your email address. (You don’t need to fill in the website line.) Just say “Save the drama for the llama” and I’ll approve you ASAP.

4) You and your parents must read this packet, sign the appropriate forms, and pay the Activity Fee! You will not be allowed to enter the room on Tuesday without these items.

Thanks for your cooperation and congratulations to everyone!
