We are excited to be hosting the Battle in the Bluffs again after a one-year hiatus. This will be a unique event in that we will not be allowing spectators. We will also be using a large space for pits and giving each team their own table. We will only allow three members to attend from each team registered as well as one coach per organization. Minimal seating will be available at the fields for scouting and coaches. We all in attendance will be required to wear a mask. Students and sponsors may remove masks while eating and drinking at their pit tables only, and must replace them if their table is approached by a member from another team. If you or your teams would prefer not to wear masks do not register for this event.
These restrictive rules are subject to change based on current local virus levels based on CDC guidelines.
