The awards presentations range across the late afternoon and evening; you can expect it to be cold in the stadium. The bleachers for spectators are made of concrete and cushions, pillows, and blankets are recommended. The afternoon sun sets across the field, so hats or visors may also be a good idea. Students and coaches will sit on the track for the awards presentation; cushions, pillows and blankets are a good idea there as well.
Do not bring chairs onto the track at the stadium.
Your team may be participating in a few events that have impounds. Impounds takes place between 7:30am and 8:30am. The location for impound will be the same location where the event takes place later that day. Make sure you bring your device and any other materials as specified by the rules to the impound area.
Please note that while one or more of the 15 current team members must have constructed all pre-built devices presented for judging, any of the current team members may demonstrate or operate the device at the competition unless stated otherwise in the rules. Any student designated by the coach may impound devices. Students will not have to have their wristband in order to impound but will need their wristbands to participate in the event.
