News & Announcements
Welcome to NorCAL Odyssey of the Mind -
Welcome to the 2018-2019 Odyssey of the Mind Season
We are excited to announce that on August 1, we officially formed two California associations that will make our North and South tournaments more accessible to teams at both ends of the state, and continue the collaboration between associations to constantly improve our services. The California North (NorCal) association includes six regions and a tireless team of volunteers committed to producing creative problem solving tournaments for student teams of all ages both at the regional and association level. Our goal is to provide a fantastic experience that will inspire new ideas, build teamwork, and provide opportunities to make new friends! On this site you can discover and explore:
- How to find your region and get local information
- What problem you would like to compete in
- How to form teams and purchase memberships
- Event schedules
And much more!
Please also explore your regional sites, and feel free to contact your regional or NorCal contacts if you need more information.
