The past three years, our EWB chapter has volunteered to host the “countdown round” for the Western Carolina MATHCOUNTS competition. This year it is Saturday, Feb 2 from 12:00 to 3:30 at TC Roberson high school in Arden. Vinnie Sullivan and Chirs Gilbert have agreed to volunteer this year and we’re looking for at least a couple more volunteers to help set-up, run, and break-down the “game show”-like math question tournament. This is a fun distraction for the nearly 200 middle school students to participate in while their tests are graded and winners announced. All the materials are provided.
For those that volunteer, we will convene at the South Asheville Thirsty Monk following the tournament for a free round of beers and pretzels.
Please email Vinnie Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Chris Gilbert (email@example.com) if you can make it.
