General Info:

We are looking forward to hosting you and your teams in what promises to be an amazing event with teams from all over North Carolina.  Please refer to the agenda tab for the schedule.  We anticipate that each team will have seven competition rounds for this event, however, this may change due to the number of registered teams and match reset rates.  We are planning an in-person tournament, with in-person judging and physical notebooks.  If you keep a digital notebook, a printed notebook housed in a three-ring binder is acceptable.  Some Middle School specific awards may not be given out depending on the number of middle school teams that register for this event.  We will award these awards if we have enough competing teams.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected]
