Greetings! Welcome to Michigan Destination Imagination's Region 1 web page. We are looking forward to another great year and I can't wait to see old friends, and meet all our first year teams and team managers.

My name is Donna Collins, your Region 1 director. I will again have Betsy Grossnickle assisting where needed. We are here to assist you in any way this year. What I don't know, Betsy will. Feel free to email us with any questions, especially new team managers.

This season we will offer Team Manager training along with Team Member training. Training will be held at Waterford Mott High School on December 2nd from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. This is great for new and seasoned Team Managers. Keep an eye on our website to register.

Region 1 tournament date is February 24, 2018 at Waterford Mott High School. State Tournament will be held on April 14 this year. Details will be posted on our website. Tournament registration will open Nov 1st and will close Jan 15th. Information you need to know before your register:

  • • Each team that participates is required to provide one volunteer Appraiser. The appraiser must attend appraiser training which will be held at Waterford Mott High School on Feb 3. It may be a 2 day commitment (if your team qualifies for state tournament), plus the 1/2 day training.

  • • We will also require each team to provide a 1/2 day volunteer. This volunteer helps us run a smooth tournament.

  • • Special Scheduling requests: This is very difficult for us to accommodate but we will do our best. Please only request for special circumstances.

Don't forget to keep an eye on our website, Like us on facebook and look for us on Pinterest.
