HOUSING:  We encourage your church to house your students & adults in hotels located near Fairmont.  Some of the events will start early Saturday morning, which means you may not have much time to travel.  Fairmont First Church and Fairmont Central are opening their Activity Buildings for you and your students if cost is an issue.   Showers will be available at FSU but not at churches.  Bring Sleeping bags and pillows if staying at churches.
ZONE DEFENSE: We have an outstanding group of teens and adults that are dedicated to serving and worshipping. We have been blessed to be allowed to invade FSU. In your welcome packages will be a map showing your churches area of clean zone defense. Closing Ceremonies will not begin until FSU looks better than it did when you arrived.
CLOSING CEREMONIES: ******Please remember that we are all servants and volunteers. Things happen that are not foreseen and cannot be planned for – we ask for your prayers, support, patience and understanding as we work through all situations to enhance the experience for all involved. With this said, we thank you in advance your loving, kind, generous support in knowing that we will not intentionally harm or disappoint any teens in the making of District BLAST 2018.
This year, District Blast, is a revised event on a weekend hopefully designed for more attendees and spectators.  Please be patient with us as we work through the kinks.  We have to be out of FSU by 5 p.m. Saturday so that is or GOAL!
As always times, locations judges etc…. can and may be changed without further notification.
