The Executive Board of Texas DI has implemented a new program to maximize the number of teams that can participate in the Affiliate (State) Tournament. The number of teams that we can advance to Global Finals is fixed by Destination Imagination, Inc.so it is not possible to run more challenge sites than we are already running. However, since many challenge sites do not have a full complement of teams, the Executive Board has announced the following.
Site maps with locations for the challenges have been posted on the Tournament page.
Go to: http://midcities.texasdi.org/2012tournament to download them. There is a color and black and white version of the map. The color map is easier to read but doesn't print very well for those who cannot print in color.
