Please see the schedule for impound times and locations. Put your school name and team number on all devices, binders and supplies so that we can return them if they are lost. After the tournament, pick up all impounded devices. Anything not claimed will be thrown out.

Goggles must be worn by ALL if any wet chemicals (including hot water) are being used. Gloves (supplied by COD) must be worn by ALL if any chemicals (including salt water) are being used.
