Our Montana Open—a Group Effort


We are excited to provide the opportunity for our MTC  community to put on the area’s greatest Taekwondo event, but we can only make it the greatest by pooling all of our gifts together. The Montana Open–Taekwondo Championships is an event that evolved from The Missoula Taekwondo Championships, an event with a 10 year history. We consciously changed the nature of the event to bring the wider world of Taekwondo into our home city to not only share our Taekwondo community with our nation’s counterparts but to bring the benefits of larger scale competition to our hometown.
There are so many ways to be involved.
·  Swag Bags given to each competitor are filled with goodies and coupons from local merchants to encourage participants to explore our great city. We will need goodies to fill the bags including: water, protein/granola bars, hand sanitizers, lanyard, coffee and restaurant coupons, clip board, stickers for water bottles, bracelets, merchant coupons and other creative items to engage participants with all that is Missoula. Contact Kendra Dunn if you have an item to donate. 300 of each item are needed.
·  Pre tournament volunteering is needed to assist in swag bag filling, arena set up, and food planning for referee/volunteer lunches and refreshments.
·  Tournament volunteering is needed in all areas including: security and guest relations, registration/check in, gear sales, staging and  bracketing, data entry, other general tasks, and arena take down. Training will be provided for all roles. A red MTC Event Team Tshirt will be provided to each volunteer. To receive the right size please register as a volunteer through livetkd.com. by 10/10. We are excited to pull this event together with your help. Thank you!~!

Registration Help for the Montana Open

We would like to thank all who have utilized Livetkd.com to register for the FUN tournament and the Montana Open so far Livetkd is gearing up to be the online registration source for all things Taekwondo in the US. They are creating a drastically improved version of online registration and bracketing to streamline tournament flow and registration ease. The developers are working very hard to provide the best product and we are one of their first start to finish clients with the Montana Open. There have been a few hurdles along the registration road, but Bob and Annemarie Boyer, the developers, are very available to help all of our participants through the process.
We will be setting up a registration table at MTC October 8-16th. Come in during class time and use our computers to register for The Open. During these times please feel free to call Annemarie at anytime for help at 858-755-2111.
Each family will have one registration Dashboard, so the head of the family will start the registration then add each member under them. For students who have already created their LiveTKD profile for the FUN Tournament registrati
on for The Open is just a few clicks away Also, as our gift to Missoula Taekwondo Center Students you will continue to receive the early registration discount by entering promo code 2014MTC.
We ask that all volunteers register on livetkd by October 10th, so that we can be sure to get every helper a MTC Event Team shirt in the appropriate size.

Please Check that your Payment Options and TKD Agreements are up to Date

As of September 15th OnMat, our dojang management company, has switched their payment processing company. This should be a benefit to us all in the long run. Currently though we need most every one of our families to reenter their preferred payment option in OnMat.
This can be done via OnMat Now, your parent portal on your iDevice or home computer, or at the dojang with Mrs. Amanda or Ms. Kim.
Even those students who have been paying through automatic methods that have not changed in nearly a
decade will need to reenter their information.
We greatly appreciate your attention to this detail.   If you are having any trouble accessing your OnMat Now please contact us and we can reset and or resend your password so you can easily manage payment, testing and scheduling matters.

Thanks again for being an active part of the Missoula Taekwondo Center family. You are why we do what we do.
