ALL COMPETITORS:

Please read this section carefully. We will have a change in organization for Slow N Steady Summer 2017 modeled off of Hungarian competitions in Europe.

In addition, you will also have staff assignments on your lanyard. Every competitor is expected to help out this competition. The card will look somewhat like the following:
