Click here to access the registration form. Registration for the competition will close on May 1, 2014. So be sure to register online to take advantage of the early bird pricing. See the Cost section for details.

The price at that time, however, is $20 for the first event, $2 per additional event with no maximum fee. So be sure to register online.

All competitors who register online will be given a few complementary homemade chocolate chip cookies and a drink (most likely a bottle of water) for lunch. Hotdogs will be available for lunch for free from the organization team.

In addition, there will be a small canteen open selling things such as pop, juice, bars, candy, popcorn, and gum. There are also several fast-food options within a 5-minute driving distance.

We are always looking for dedicated people to donate their time and efforts to these competitions. We need scramblers and judges for every round of every event. It is a great opportunity for parents, siblings, friends, or anyone that wants to come and be involved but does not want to compete yet. We will provide training the morning of the competition for those wishing to help out. It is not difficult, so don't be afraid!

For anyone that volunteers and helps out for an entire competition, we will act as a reference if you wish to put this on your resume or college application. We will also sign any high school volunteer hour sheets provided you work the entire competition. But you must arrange this with us before the competition. If you'd like to help out, please fill in the form found here.
