Safety is our #1 priority. We will be following the local COVID-19 guidelines at the time of this primarily outdoor event. In an effort to protect our participants and volunteers, we have limited the number of teams. Additionally, events are being adjusted to minimize shared equipment, which will be cleaned throughout the day. Hand sanitizer and disposable gloves will be available on site, and pre-packaged food will be provided for team breakfast and lunch.
