We are looking forward to hosting you on Friday. Please be aware that we will  be conducting these events differently than you might be accustomed. We followed this last year, and it seemed to work very well.

First, as much as we can, we will be using online balloting. Yes, even in the IE's and Congress. To that end, make sure that all of your judges have a tabroom account and are linked to your school. If you get to the campus early enough on Friday, we can verify that the judges indeed are signed up. That doesn't mean they should be doing that at that time. 

Second, make sure your coaches, judges, and students are familiar with tabroom. We will have the setting made so that you can indeed sign up to follow your entries. All postings will be available on tabroom. Judges will receive their ballots through tabroom and will enter them on tabroom as well. Make sure your judges have a device that will allow them to do that. A phone will work for that purpose. However, a laptop or tablet would be preferred. 

If you have questions, feel free to contact Dave Huston (david.huston@gcisd.net). See you on Friday
