Hi Amy,

Something similar happened last year with my team where three of 8 team
members were unable  come to the regional tournament. It was a challenge
for the team to re-work the project presentation, and assigned roles in
running missions in the last minute.

We ended up regional champion, and had those three kids join us for the
championship state tournament.

How you handle a challenge and demonstrate core values is what the kids
learn with such experiences.

Good luck, hope the kid recovers quickly.

Hi Karen,

I have a situation that we haven't been in before and wanted to ask you for
thoughts.  We have a boy on the team, who has been very sick in the last
week with pneumonia.  And while he's now recovered from that, the pneumonia
has triggered his asthma, and he's now receiving breathing treatments.
which make him very tired and sleepy. It was clear to me after seeing him
today that there's no way he's going to make it through the tournament,
although he wants so much to be there.  I am wondering if it is a problem
for him to come for part of the day on Saturday and just be with his team,
although he's not going into the judging rooms.  Or if they should happen
to win an award, would it be ok for him to go up with his team to receive
it? I just didn't know if that was weird or frowned upon? I just feel so
bad for him and they all worked so hard together all season, and I'm just
trying to find a way to make it not so bad I guess.

I would really appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you,
Amy
