The Computer Lab in Taylor/CEBA Hall will be available on Friday from 4:00 PM until 10:00 PM for teams to practice. Any code typed during this time will be lost. Teams will also be able to register and get their packets during the early part of the evening.

Next, we will have the formal review of the rules and procedures. Any and all questions will be taken at this time (hopefully answered also). It is important for all teams to be present during this time (if possible).

Teams will actually compete in the Taylor/CEBA Lab. Team locations will be posted Saturday morning (8:00 AM).

Make sure you find out where you will be competing in time to make it to your spot by 9:15 AM. Saturday at 9:15 AM, the practice contest will start. When the Practice Contest is over, all teams should return to Taylor/CEBA 1119.
Lunch will be served and a last minute Rules Clarification Session will be held.

At noon, the contest will start and run for 5 hours. At 5:30 PM we will review the problem set in Taylor/CEBA . Due to the separate sites we will not have an awards banquet. There will be supper in Taylor/CEBA 1119 and a problem review by the judges.
