The venue for the Tishomingo Invitational Tournament has changed. A big thank you to the faculty and staff of Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant for agreeing to host the Invitational on short notice and the Tournament Director Shelena Thomas for doing the leg work to make it happen.
Registration for the tournament continues at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZN87GSX
Roster submission will open later this week.
How surprising was that? The forecast “light dusting” of snow that took place at my house was something all together different as I approached Casady School early Saturday morning just 4 miles to the east. Most of the localized snow dump took place just as teams were arriving, but by the start of the tournament, there was only the 30 MPH wind and bitter wind chill with which to contend.
But everybody took it in stride and Casady hosted a great tournament. Only one event had to be cancelled!

The next Invitational tournament will take place February 6th at Murray State College in Tishomingo. This a great opportunity for students to visit a college campus and is the first time we have held a Science Olympiad event in southern Oklahoma. We anticipate at least one team from Texas to attend as well! Registration will open next week and the Roster form will be posted a week or so before the tournament (Do Not Forget To Submit You Roster Online no later than Wednesday, February 3rd.
