Schedule for March 2

image57

We will follow this schedule for the NYC Regional Competition.  I reserve the right to alter it slightly until early December - it depends on the number of teams that are registered.  Rooms will be added at a later time.


Note the designations odd and even.  Check your team number.  All odd numbered teams must compete in the odd time slots; even in the even slots.  Note that all teams from one school are scheduled at the same time slot.


You can download a copy of the schedule in the Download section below.

The rulebook has been added on September 4th!  You can now download your free copy.  But remember, your team is not registered unless you have filled out the form on Ezra and then sent back the response form with the payment for the team.  It is really important for the Region that you complete registration as soon as possible - that way I have a clue as to how many teams will be participating.  I have been told that the trial events will be the same as last year, so I am linking last year's trial events.  I will update them if the rules are modified.  I am also linking the Parasitology rules (another trial event).  Note that we are not running Parasitology in NYC, but it will be run at the State.


I have added the link for the slightly altered schedule for March 2 - rooms have been added.  Please download it and print enough copies for your team.  Each student should have a copy of the schedule.  Note the change to Duct Tape Challenge.  I have also added the link for the Coaches' assignments.  If you have any question about what your event entails, please contact me.
