The Computer Lab in Coates Hall will be available on Friday from 4:30 PM until 10:00 PM for teams to practice. Any code typed during this time will be lost. Teams will also be able to register and get their packets during the early part of the evening.

At 6:00 PM, we plan to have the traditional Welcome (complete with Pizza and Cola) in the Coates Auditorium. A Cajun Band will play during this time. We will also have movies and games in a few of the surrounding rooms.

At 7:00 PM, we will have a brief Welcome speech followed by representatives for Extreme Blue. Following this talk, we will have the formal review of the rules and procedures. Any and all questions will be taken at this time (hopefully answered also). It is important for all teams to be present during this time (if possible).

Friday evening will also include some entertaiment and diversion. We are planning to have a Cajun Band playing during part of the evening. We will also have some movies playing in a few of the multimedia classrooms. Our goal is to provide a relaxing evening for the tense as well as a practice area for those who desire one last practice.

Locations will be posted Saturday morning (7:00 AM). Make sure you find out where you will be competing in time to make it to your spot by 9:15 AM. Saturday at 9:15 AM, the practice contest will start. Your packets will include your team logonid. When the Practice Contest is over, all teams should return to the Coates Auditorium. Lunch (planned Poboys and colas) will be served and a last minute Rules Clarification Session will be held.

At noon, the contest will start and run for 5 hours. At 5:30 PM we will review the problem set at the Coates Auditorium. Afterwards, the Awards Banquet will be held in the Maravich Assembly Center at 6:45 PM.
