The Secret Sisters of Ba-BAM-Ness is a team of seven girls who participate in Destination ImagiNation, which is an exhilarating after-school activity in which students work in teams to solve mind-bending Challenges and present their solutions at Tournaments. The SSOBBN won Second Place in their category at the Austin Regional DI Tournament in March, so are now headed to the State Tournament in Katy, Texas on April 13th, 2013. They are hoping to raise enough funds to cover the expenses of seven girls and four parents travelling to the tournament - expenses such as gas for two vehicles to drive 300 miles, two hotel rooms for two nights, Tournament T-shirts that the girls are required to wear, and hopefully some meals for the girls while they are out of town.
The girls have been meeting at least once a week since the beginning of the school year and Destination ImagiNation has been very rewarding for them. They have learned teamwork, creative thinking, improvisation and many other skills that will be helpful to them in school and in the future. Help them keep their excitement for this program going by helping them attend the State Tournament! Thank you! Ba-BAM!!

P.S. A note on the duct tape incentives listed to the right: The humble duct tape has become the de facto symbol of Destination ImagiNation. DI-ers use the versatile substance to build towers and to repair sets and yes, even to create costumes [the SSOBBN's challenge solution features a lovely pink dress made from duct tape and a plastic table cloth!]. If you choose to recieve incentives, you may rightfully find yourself the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind DI Duct Tape masterpiece! But also remember it's only duct tape; if you choose not to recieve thank you gifts you'll save us the shipping costs. Thank you!
P.P.S. Even if you choose not to receive the thank you gifts we would like to send you a Thank You card, so please include your mailing address for that reason! It will be used for NO other purpose than the team understanding how important it is to thank the people that help them.
