Notes for Parents:

Judging Requirements for All Parent Judges

Thank you for registering for GCC 2019! To insure a quality tournament that runs on time and provides them with both quality and quantity ballots from parents and community judges, we are requiring parents to judge nine (9) rounds per family. This means that whether you have five children competing or one child competing, over the course of 3-4 days you will need to judge nine rounds. Registration for the rounds will be required before student registration is completed.

Upon arrival at the tournament, parents must go through a Parent Check-in to verify your judging times. Please note that YOUR STUDENT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THEIR CHECK-IN AT THE TOURNAMENT UNTIL THE PARENT CHECK-IN HAS BEEN FINISHED. Please understand that a student dropped off at the tournament will not be able to compete until their parent has checked in and had their judging times verified.

If you are carpooling, you are responsible for finding other attending club members to fill in for your family’s nine (9) judging slots. This will need to be entered into your student registration for completion. If you have difficulty with this, please contact Allisha Speed at Additionally, remember to fill in the responsible party for your student when registering.

One more reminder: The Green Country Challenge tournament is not a “drop off” event.* We are a small club, and if you are not judging, we have plenty of areas we could use help in. Please check the Information Kiosk/ Judge Check-In area for a place where you can serve. We would love to have your help with Student Meals, Hall Monitoring, or Judge Hospitality.

Thank you for the talents, gifting, and servant hearts that each of you bring to the GCC tournament. Our students are receiving input from “the best of the best” – that’s you – and we are so very grateful.

Supervision of Students

Unsupervised students are NOT allowed in host housing at any time.

Parents or supervising adults, please plan to remain on campus with your student throughout the tournament. If you encounter an emergency situation and need to leave the premises, please sign out at the Judge Check-In kiosk. Otherwise, please plan to remain on stand-by to judge all events, regardless of your registered time slots. Your student's safety and positive tournament experience is of utmost importance.

Carpooling & Judge Requirements

We understand that carpooling is helpful for those traveling exceptionally long distances for tournament experience. Please make arrangements to provide for the nine (9) judging slots required for your individual family. You may be able to fill your required judging slots in some of the following ways: The supervising adults may need to judge extra rounds beyond those required for their immediate family, registering families may need to contact family or friends in town, families may bring grandparents or alumni siblings to help extra judging needs, families may offer to call and recruit judges from community lists provided by the host club, etc.

Bringing Food from Home

Please keep food and beverages in designated areas at all times. In addition, please clean up after yourselves following each meal, and be certain that you return all food and paper goods to your vehicle or hotel by the end of each day. Due to safety concerns, please do NOT bring CROCKPOTS or other heating devices into the building. Thank you for your cooperation.
