2015 Region 9 Championship Update

Hello everyone, 

We thank you for your patience – due to some extenuating circumstances, we are a bit behind getting the Regional packets completed.  We are working very hard to get all the information together, including Regional qualifying scores and allotments.  Right now we wanted to send out the dates, location, and hotel information for the meet so people can start to make their plans.  Please share this information with your families. 

As soon as we have more info, we’ll forward that out to everyone.  The Regional meeting will be held Friday night, April 10th.
