Crazy Kompetition for Infants 2018 Playbook

OVERVIEW

Crazy Kompetition for Infants (CKI) is an annual event that raises money for Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) through a series of fun, competitive mini-games and relays. The event is held in two different regions: one for the northern half of the District and one for the southern half. Welcome to CKI North & CKI South.

CKI North will be held on Saturday, October 6th at Tahoe Park in Sacramento, CA.

CKI South will be held on Saturday October 20th at Ralph B. Clark Regional Park in Buena Park, CA.

Both events will run from 8AM-4PM.

Teams of six members (with the option of one alternate member) from various schools across the CNH District will be divided into groups and play rounds of six mini-games, earning points to push them to the top of the competition. Bring your A-game and show us what you’re all about! Register to compete and find out!

 

PEDIATRIC TRAUMA PROGRAM

Pediatric trauma remains the leading cause of death and injury among children ages 14 and under in the United States. To address this concern, the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation established the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) in 1994. PTP is funded solely by contributions from Kiwanis clubs and members and by the fundraising efforts of our Service Leadership Programs. It focuses on reducing and treating accidental injuries as well as helping to prevent the deaths of children and infants throughout the nation.

The CNH Foundation takes a holistic approach to prevent pediatric trauma by providing community outreach, education, and safety materials to families living in the communities we share; by providing grants to the Kiwanis Family to assist them in their efforts to reduce trauma and death; by providing grants to our partner hospitals, which enable them to reach out to their communities with their own PTP projects and campaigns; by offering advanced pediatric training for doctors, nurses, and first responders; and by purchasing specialized pediatric medical equipment.

Did you know?

  • Unintentional injury is the #1 killer of children age 14 and under in the U.S.
  • Unintentional injury kills more children every year than any other cause – including disease, homicide and suicide.
  • 90% of these unintentional injuries can be prevented!
  • Money donated to PTP is used to train doctors and nurses on proper pediatric medical care, educate the public on preventative measures and solutions for these injuries, and provide safety equipment to young children.

EVENT STRUCTURE

The total amount of teams participating will be split into six groups. The division into groups is to improve efficiency and decrease the wait time between games.

 

The event will have six stations—one station for each of the five games (described in a subsequent part of this playbook) and one workshop station for attendees to learn more about PTP and the CNH Foundation. Teams will move from station to station until they have completed all six in total. The top eight teams will move on to Quarterfinals, and the top four teams from the Quarterfinals will battle it out in the Semifinals. From there, the top two teams will compete in an epic finale to determine the winner of Crazy Kompetition for Infants.

 

Please be sure to dress comfortably and wear closed-toe shoes. Additionally, be aware of your body and its needs, so drink plenty of water and stay hydrated!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If I attend a northern Circle K school (in Capital, Golden Gate, Sunset, or northern Central Coast), am I able to attend CKI South and vice versa?

Once the following criteria is met, an individual may be able to attend the out-of-region Crazy Kompetition:

  1. The member must request explicit permission from his/her club’s Kiwanis Advisor.
  2. This explicit permission must be emailed to <[email protected]>, <[email protected]>, and <[email protected]> with the following details:
    1. An explanation of travel arrangements to and from your place of residence to your destination; and
    2. A detailed account of housing arrangements when you arrive at your destination.

If those criteria are met, then the district may grant you approval.

Please be aware that this is an approval process. Submission of these details DOES NOT guarantee automatic approval. Members that receive approval may participate in both Crazy Kompetitions. If approved, traveling must not be engaged during extreme driving hours, namely 10:00PM-6:00AM.

Please email District Treasurer, Shaira Ramirez-Santos, at <[email protected]> for help or more information.

 

Who do I make our check out to?

All checks should be made payable to Cal-Nev-Ha Circle K or CNH Circle K.

 

Where do we send our checks, registration forms, and waivers?

Checks and waivers should be sent to the CNH Kiwanis District Office:

CNH Kiwanis District Office

ATTN: Bruce Hennings

8360 Red Oak Street, Suite 201

Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

 

Who needs to sign a waiver?

ALL interested members MUST sign a waiver. This includes participants, judges, spectators, and on-site medics. Early Registration participants should mail in waivers along with the Early Registration document and check.

 

Do members need to be dues-paid to attend?

All attendees must either be (1) dues-paid members of Kiwanis or Circle K; (2) prospective Circle K-ers who are currently enrolled at an institution where a chartered or chartering club is located; or (3) given explicit permission from District Administrator Mondo Velazquez to attend.

 

How many people are in a team? How many males and females?

There is a maximum of six members per team with the option of one alternate player. There is no specific gender ratio.

 

How many teams can my club register?

Your club may register as many teams as they wish! Simply copy and paste more tables in the Registration Word Doc to register more teams.

 

Can members sign up to be individuals competitors?

Yes! This also applies to incomplete teams that do not have six members. Simply list the members that lack a team (or incomplete teams) in one of the team registrations and submit their waivers and registration fees. The Finance and Fundraising Committee will then combine all incomplete teams and individual players onsite to maximize the number of people participating.

 

Can I be on a team with people from other schools?

Yes! Teams do not need to be comprised of all members from just one school. Bond with your fellow Circle K-ers! Just make sure to have each member submit registration through their respective school and to indicate on the registration form that they are on a team comprised of different team members.

 

What if I want to go to Crazy Kompetition but don’t want to compete?

We have three options for those who wish to attend but not participate:

(1) Sign up to be a judge! Judges earn service hours for their time in helping the games run smoothly.

(2) Serve as an on-site medic and help assist members with any injuries they may receive during the event. Medics must be first-aid and CPR certified. 

(3) Be a spectator. Cheer on your teams for moral support and show CNH Circle K the passion you have for this event!

 

Can clubs make changes to their teams after they have submitted registration?

We understand that quarter schools only have a few weeks to advertise Crazy Komp to their members, so we will allow for team switches to happen on-site. However, we request that a club representative (eg. Club President or Treasurer) provide a list of all finalized teams and members in attendance on-site.

 

Will lunch be provided?

Yes! Lunch is provided with registration; we will also offer vegan and vegetarian options for those who are interested. Snacks and water will be provided during the day to keep your energy levels high!
