Parents/Friends/Family

We love to have families come to some or all of this event. Drop in for an hour, or stay all three days! The event is free and open to the public – you can come in and out as often as you like. Join us in the stands to cheer us on – students say they play better when they can hear NoMythic cheers. Visit us in the pit. Have a NoMythic shirt – wear it! Want one? We’ll have some for purchase beforehand or at the event.

We could also use some parents to help monitor activities in the stands, making sure the area stays attended, that we cheer loudly, and that students have some resource. Please contact Toby if you’d be willing to take a shift.

Food

The team will be eating lunch together each day in the lobby of the arena, or just outside if it’s nice out. Please note that there is a strict policy for no outside food within the arena – bags will be searched. You can bring in food – it just must be concealed in the bottom of your bag. There will be some snacks (bars) available each day in the pit, and concession food is available for purchase. All team members will be expected to bring a water bottle into the arena.

Shirts

Team members should wear their purple shirts every day.  Additional shirts will be available for sale for $15 during the event.
