ARDI Global Finals Team Manager Deadlines and Warnings

Thursday, March 24, 2016
To all ARDI Team Managers with teams advancing to Global Finals 2016
Copy to ARDI BOD and Coordinators

Spring Break and Easter will be over soon. Please prepare and be diligent in meeting deadlines.
Some of you have moved ahead and are virtually finished with your online registration and your total payment. Some of you will hopefully get started this Monday.
DEADLINES:
By Thursday, March 31, 2016 you must have started your online team registration and sent in your $1500 down payment.
The ARDI shirts order for you, your team members and your supporters is due by 6 PM, Friday, April 29, 2016. Everyone in Arkansas DI is to wear the black shirt on Wednesday, May 25, 2016 (Opening Ceremony) and wear the white shirt on Saturday, May 28, 2016 (Closing Ceremony). Get your order forms on the ARDI website under ARDI Forms. Orders will be delivered and payment received at the Winners Workshop on May 14, 2016. Checks and cash are acceptable. Make checks out to ARDI.
The ARDI pins order for you, your team members and your supporters is due by 6 PM, Friday, May 6, 2016. Get your order forms on the ARDI website under ARDI Forms. Orders will be delivered and payment received at the Winners Workshop on May 14, 2016. Checks and cash are acceptable. Make checks out to ARDI. Pin trading at Global Finals is a BIG deal. The ARDI 2016 pin set meets all licensing and manufacturing agreements for IP, Copyright and Trademarks. It is our recommendation that you do not manufacture or bring illegal pins to Global Finals. You will be required to confirm by signature during physical registration that you have been warned against this practice. This is your warning: Don't do it.

You can make online changes and payments to your team registration until the end of day on Friday, May 6, 2016. So, the goal is to have ALL ARDI Global Team Registrations and ALL Payments in by this date. After that, you will lose online access to your team registration and your team will be subject to additional fees.
Winners Workshop is a required meeting for all ARDI Team Managers with teams going to Global Finals.
The meeting specifics are:
Location - Carver Magnet Elementary School
Address - 2100 E 6th ST, Little Rock, AR 72202
Time / Date - 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM, Saturday, May 14, 2016
PLEASE READ YOUR 2016 GLOBAL FINALS GUIDE AND SHARE THE HANDOUT VERSION WITH YOUR PARENTS AND SUPPORTERS. You can also access the Global Finals Guide at: http://www.globalfinals.org/globals-guide-and-forms/
WARNING: DO NOT LOSE CONTROL OF YOUR DI TEAM. There are many distractions in east Tennessee. You will find that you can better manage your team and they will have a better experience if everyone understands up front that you are the Boss.
WARNING: DO NOT FORGET HOUSING FOR YOUR TRANSPORTATION DRIVERS.
The pace will quicken.
