Each team name must consist of the institution name (greater than 1 character but less than or equal to 8 characters) followed by a hyphen (-) followed by a team name (greater than 0 characters but less than or equal to 24 characters). Please note that spaces are counted as characters.
INSTITUTION = University name or abbreviation. 1 < length(INSTITUTION ) <= 8.
TEAMNAME = Your team name. 1 <= length(TEAMNAME) <= 24.
Each individual institution must use the same name for the INSTITUTION field.
Eg. If Binghamton University sends multiple teams each team must fill in the INSTITUTION field with the same name.
Most teams from last year would be valid with these new rules.
An example of a subtle change would be our champions: Columbia - Kington
The space before the hyphen (-) would have to be eliminated. Columbia- Kington or Columbia-Kington would be valid.
Eveyone will be issued name badges at registration including coaches and guests.
No one without a name badge will be allowed into any contest facility including, but not limited to, opening/closing cerimonies, food area, contest area, and the coaches meeting.
DO NOT LOSE YOUR BADGE!!!
