The competitor limit for this competition has been reached.

You can still register for the waitlist by registering and paying the registration fee normally. We will send you an email if you make it to the competitor list. If you feel that your fee should be waived for any reason, let us know when we accept your registration and you will be refunded. You are not considered on the waitlist until the payment is made.

If you are on the registration list and find that you cannot make it, please let us know! We will refund your registration fee and let another competitor onto the list. We want to allow as many people to compete as we possibly can.

The deadline for this is November 4th, 2017 at 8:00 PM EDT, when registration closes. No refunds will be given to registered competitors past this point.

On November 4th, 2017 at 8:00 PM EDT, if you are still on the waitlist and you have paid, your registration fee will be refunded. So, you will not lose your fee if you never make it to the competitors' list.

ALL COMPETITORS:

Please read this section carefully. Changes in organization have been made 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:

Please note that everyone is expected to help only during the events they are registered for, and everyone need only help for one group per event. If you do not arrive to help during your scheduled event, and there are not enough staff members, we reserve the right to disqualify you from competing.
