For several years, my wife and I coached an Odyssey of the Mind team.
In 1991, our team was quite successful and made it to the World Finals
at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. (For my son and me, NOAC
last year was a return to a lot of memories.) One of the things I
remember very well about the trip to the World Finals was a group of
students who seemed to go nowhere without their roller blades. They
were a particular hazard in the crowded, second-floor cafeteria and on
the stairs! I don't know why they are banned at the jamboree, but I
have seen what a problem they can cause in some situations.
