Hi guys :)

My name is Blake, and this is my first year coaching at an Arizona charter school with grades 7-12. It looks like we will have 9 teams this year. Last year all 8 of our teams went to Worlds and one team went to Eurofest, so I think we have a pretty successful program and I'm proud to be a part of it.

A little about my OM expierience...

I did 2 years of OM as a student, 1996-97 (OMerdroid Div II) and 1997-98 (Morph Magic Div II) and went to Worlds both years, including the infamous Disney World World Finals... ah memories... lol...

In 1998, my school district sided with DI after the split, so I did that in high school.

Odyssey of the Mind changed my life, which is why I want to continue my participation and support of the program.

This year it looks like I'll be coaching Div II vehicle and possibly Div II technical as well.

If you have questions about OM in general, I'd be happy to answer them. I don't have any real coaching expiereince so I don't know much about tribunals and other coach-related stuff, but I know the rest of the program inside and out!

Hi Blake, great to have you here! Are you coordinating the program as well as coaching?

Just a coach. I don't think I could handle the coordinating load, we have a husband and wife that have been doing it out our school for 6 years now, and its a huge job.
