Can substitutions to the team roster be made on the day of the event?

Sorry, but we can’t make any changes to the team’s roster on the day of the event. However, if there are any issues, team captains should go to the “Information Tent”.

Do we have to have a team uniform?

We strongly suggest that teams dress alike—t-shirts rule the day. When your team shirts are the same color, our volunteers can easily tell teams apart.
