Virtual Tournament Procedures:

Make sure to read this year’s Program Guide as well as the video guidelines. Be sure to read the email from Joy Kurtz in your members area.

Judges:  If any of your judges were released by their problem captain, they are not required to attend Feb. 13th training, nor are they expected to judge the regional competition. Furthermore, they are not expected to judge at the State Competition.  Released judges will not pose a missing judge penalty to your team.  If you have any questions regarding judges’ training, please reach out to your Problem Captain.

Score Posting/Awards:  Each Region will post scores and have an awards ceremony on or after March 17th.  Please stay tuned for further information.

Here is a good link for virtual competition information.

Please be sure to include the COVID compliance form when you submit your paperwork.

There will be no late solutions accepted.  The submission portal will close at noon ET on March 6th.

Spontaneous:   Please note the submission window for spontaneous has been updated.  Submissions will be accepted 8:00am Feb. 27th to Noon on March 6th.  Reminder-all 7 team members  are able to participate in the spontaneous competition this year.

Problem 4: Structure delivery information! You can ship it to the below address which will hold them until we are ready to do weigh in and crush.  Package should be postmarked no later than March 6th.
Edward Jones Investments
C/O Rob Lowrie
711 Poplar Street
Lebanon, PA 17042

If you don’t want to ship it we have arranged a drop off location:
Steve Ives
154 Forest Trail Dr
Lansdale PA 19446

Regardless of your choice make sure your structure is packed in a safe, secure way in a container for transportation. If you would like your container and crushed structure back please provide a postage paid and self addressed box as well. After the crush has been completed you will receive an email with the video of the weigh In process and the crushing with a weight held.  One final reminder – per the general clarification the actual structure we crush needs to be the one in the video doing the trap.
