In reviewing the EP guidelines for tournaments, it states: "EP has an approved Background Check on file. The EP is required to be present at all times students are present. ■ EP + Judges + Team + Team Adult for Judging Interviews ■ EP + Head Referee + Team + Team Adult for Robot Skills Runs".
As an EP, who is already needing to extend a one-day tournament to a two-day tournament just to serve 24 teams, with inspections happening on an additional evening, this seems a lot to ask. What options do I have as an EP to NOT have to be present for all judging interviews, since I would not be present for them during an in-person tournament?
