Bellevue DECA Heading to State Competition

We’re getting awfully close to our state tournament, which means we need to take care of some final details.

Tomorrow at 11 AM: Our weekly team meeting.  I’d love to see as many of you as possible show up for part or all of this.

This Friday: All prepared speech materials submitted to Kyle.  You will likely have the opportunity to make some last minute changes before the competition, but we need something to submit before the tournament.

Next Monday, the 9th at 6 PM: we will have a MANDATORY meeting for all team members with our student activities leaders.  You need to be present, as they will be going over expectations of how to represent Bellevue College while we’re abroad.  We’ll make sure all international students have proper paperwork and that our two underage travelers have all their permission slip​s to smuggle them across the border!

We will then go over final details such as modified roommates at the hotel, the schedule of events for Victoria, and clothing choices for competition.  Feel free to bring along outfits that you are thinking of wearing to make sure we set you up for success with the judges.  You will only need ONE dressy outfit for the weekend, as Thursday and Saturday are business casual (not jeans and t shirts, but something comfortable for walking around and traveling).  After the discussion, we will have a brief practice session in small groups, as I really want to make sure you watch each other and learn from group practices.

Next Tuesday, the 10th: our last officers’ meeting before state

Next Wednesday, the 11th: our last weekly team meeting

Thursday, the 19th: we’re off to Canada!
