We hope you’ve had a busy and fantastic day of competition at the Olympiad! Here is what you need to know about Friday July 11‘s events, but first, two clarifications regarding rules.
First, on protests – students must protest immediately (as per the rules). That is defined as before the next question. Moderators should not immediately rule on protests, even if they are experts in the field in which the tossup falls. Protests should go to the site captain, who will make a note of them. They will only be dealt with though, if it matters in terms of making the finals or not (or in terms of the medals within the finals).
Secondly, it is allowed, and it is not considered poor sportsmanship to “kill” questions by being the 3rd incorrect response without offering a possible answer. This is allowed in the rules.
Now, on to where you need to be and when you need to be there (i.e. Friday, July 11)
1. Written Exam – Millington 150
Please meet in front of Sadler at 8:00-8:15! We will walk over to Millington together. If you can get to Millington on your own, that’s up to you, but we strongly recommend being in front of Sadler at 8:00-8:15.
The following students should remain at Sadler and NOT walk to Millington:
Those who are doing the written exam and the simulation will do the written exam first, then be escorted back to the Sadler Center, where you’ll meet the rest of the group at 10:00. If you’re not doing the written exam, please be at Sadler at 9:45am. We’ll then go over to the Simulation room (Gooch Upper Common Room) together.
Those who are doing the written exam and the Military History Bee will do the written exam first, then be escorted directly to the Military History Bee buildings (Sadler for Varsity; Eagle for Junior Varsity, Griffin for Middle School) where you’ll meet the rest of the group at 10:00. If you’re not doing the written exam, please be at Sadler at 9:45am to be escorted over to Eagle or Griffin (or to play if you’re Varsity).
Meet in Chesapeake A at 1:15! (The rooms are in Griffin, but meet in Chesapeake)
This will take place immediately after the hextathlon concludes. The rooms are Eagle F and Griffin A, but everyone will meet in Griffin A.
