Friday Announcements

Hi All, 

First - Action Items Checklist: 
 - have you sent the google form out to your parents either virtually (preferred) or in paper form and are you bugging those who haven't turned it in yet?
 - have you entered your students and their events in to Avogadro?
- Have you had everyone, including your principal, sign the Vandalism & Behavior form?
I have gone in and loaded all the other events in to Avogadro so that when you enter your students into events, their schedule will auto-populate under the scheduling  tab and you can print it for them and you.  Please let me know if there is a typo in this schedule, I have to hand enter all 46 events for every tournament, so if I have accidentally scheduled Bottle Rockets for midnight or anything like that, please let me know so that I can change it.  Towers was missing from the Div B list, you so need to go back in and tell us when you plan to compete in that event.
There are many of you who did not choose a period for your walk-in events by the deadline, so I have opened the self-scheduling back up.  PLEASE log in and tell us whether you plan to compete in events by choosing 'Not Showing' on the team details page and picking times for the events you do plan to compete in.
If you are having trouble, email me!  It is really helpful if you tell me your school name and tournament where you are competing, it saves me having to log in to our database to find you before I fix your problem.
Have a great weekend,

Forms, Avogadro, and a few important event updates

Hello everyone!

At this point, everyone should have gotten a link for the google form that has all the permission/photo consent information in it.  Every student on the team must have this form on file to compete! 
I know that Google forms are new to some of you, so I made a tutorial video to help you.  Here is the link:
If some of your parents don't have internet access, you can use the attached Paper copy, but please limit this unless absolutely necessary.  We have to scan every one of these papers and keep them and with 18,000 students participating this year, its a bit overwhelming and cumbersome.
If you have not tried to log in to Avogadro yet, please do it today!  Your login is your email address (where I am sending this email).  I have attached the user manual to this email, and also made a video to help you get started on this.  
You need to log in and self-schedule in to the walk-in events now - this closes at midnight on Feb 15.  Your team members do not have to be filled out to do this part.  We also REALLY need you to let us know now if you are sure you won't have a team for certain events.  We are running 5 tournaments across the state on Feb 25 and our equipment and supplies are maxed out, so it will help us spread our supplies where they will be used.  Please click 'not showing' in any event that your team is not participating in.
You will need to turn in the Vandalism & Behavior form signed by you, your principal, and your students.  1 per team. 
Div C Updates

Bottle Rockets - after trying out the new rules and altimeters at Raleigh, we are making a few clarifications to the rules.  These will go up on the event resource page, but I wanted to highlight that all rockets will be shot at 60psi everywhere for every tournament.  Also, the altimeter is in a 2" styrofoam ball.  This must go inside your rocket nose cone somewhere.  Pictures to follow on the event resource page.  
Amazing Mechatronics - we need students to bring their aurduinos and pieces with them, we won't have enough to supply to everyone.
Let me know what questions you have!
