Good morning everyone,
I hope everyone is doing well. There have been several updates to the website over the last week.
Store is Open
We are working with a local vendor, Arkansas Apparel, to offer t-shirts, sweatshirts, and hats. If you order by this Friday, then we will have the order ready for you to pick up at registration. You will find the link under the “Store” page on the website (or you can just follow this link).
We have updated the case in response to some of the Q&A received. I believe that everyone question we’ve received has been addressed, but please let me know if I missed an inquiry. In addition, today is the last day to submit any questions you have about the case. Any questions submitted today will be answered, and a final version of the case (if necessary) will be published by May 1.
We have also published some forms for the competition. While most of them are “for your information,” two of them will require action on your part. First, we have published a photo and video release. We need every member of the team to sign (and have their parents sign) a release. You will submit these releases when you register in Little Rock. Second, there are the team rosters. You will need to fill out team rosters and print sufficient copies for the competition.
Observers and Gala Tickets
Please remember that all observers must be registered. Several of you have done so already, which we appreciate. Further, if any of them will be attending the awards gala, they will need to purchase a ticket. (You will receive all gala tickets at on-site registration.) I’ll leave observer registration and ticket purchases live for about another week just in case there is anyone else you need to register.
Tours of Clinton Library
Finally, we are still working on finalizing tours of Clinton Library on Wednesday and Thursday morning. Once we have this organized, I will send out a sign-up sheet for anyone who is interested.
