Odyssey-Texas will reimburse a state judge for actual hotel and gas expenses up to the current year maximum allowance as follows:Officials attending the state tournament only are reimbursed for Friday night only. Officials staying for the State Board meeting Sunday morning are reimbursed for two nights.
The maximum hotel reimbursement rate per night includes tax and is based on rooming with another judge at the State Judges Hotel. To receive this rate you will have to reserve a room by the cut-off date. Other room charges, such as movies, phone calls, and food are your responsibility. Please remember to submit an actual hotel receipt with all specific charges listed.

If you do not stay at the judge hotel or reserve after the deadline, you may request reimbursement of $55.67 or the amount of half the room rate + tax, whichever is less.
