Destination Imagination NH State Finals next week...

At the DI regional meet
Spencer's team (Merrimack Middle School - RED team, 6th-7th graders)
won first place for the "Change in DIrection" challege. The other
Merrimack Middle School team (7th-8th graders) also placed first in
their "Once upon and Improv" challenge which is a great showing for
the town.

The other co-manager of our team has been in contact with a reporter
from New Hampshire Union
newspaper and provided him with a copy of the team photo
and a quote about what the kids get out of DI.

Today's paper does have an article about leads off with two of the
Merrimack middle school teams won 1st place in their challenge and
will be going to the NH State finals.

"Two Merrimack teams -- both from Mastricola Middle School --
finished in first place in Destination Imagination's regional
tournament and will not advance to complete in different events in the
upcoming state finals."

"Their imaginations are taking them places", byline Dan Mclean)

The rest of the article is about the other team, their picture, team
members, quotes, description of the challenge and nothing about
our team. That sucks.
