State Land Use CDE - Update

After talking with SWIC and the Contest Superintendent, we will still be holding the State Land Use CDE tomorrow, Oct. 11th. Registration begins at 8, closing at 9:30 am. We will plan on starting the contest at 10, however we may need to push the start time back depending on pit conditions. There is a chance of rain early in the morning, however the Contest Host and Superintendent decided to hold the contest tomorrow rather than using the rain date scheduled for next week, in consideration of schools traveling from across the state. 

If you have students participating, make sure to have them bring boots and other rain gear in case of muddy conditions in the pits. We have buildings secured in case of rain to fill out official scantrons in a dry environment. Copies have been made to fill out in the pits, then official scantrons can be filled out inside in the case of rain. I would also recommend bringing large Ziploc bags to put clipboards in, just in case. 

If you have any questions, please let me know. 

Thank you,
