— Members of the Goshen Central School District’s Odyssey of the Mind teams participated in the sixth annual 'Spontaneous Night' held Jan. 13.

More than 65 Omers and their coaches enjoyed pizza and then spent the rest of the night creatively solving problems.

A record number of teams — 11 in total — will compete in the Regional Competition at Orange-Ulster BOCES March 4.

In addition to practicing spontaneous problems, teams are hard at work on their long term solutions. Each team must present an eight minute skit that solves a variety of technical and creative challenges. Teams placing first will advance to States held at SUNY Binghamton in April.
