How do building events work at Nats?

Postby yousmellchinese123 » Sun Apr 19, 2009 9:01 pm

I looked at the schedule and I saw that there was a boxing extending into 2 of the time slots.
How do they do the building events, is it you have to stay the whole time or pick a time in between?

I noticed this too and got in contact with the president of SO (then laughed at the fact that there's a president, I find it funny for some reason). He said that they usually just let people go whenever they want (within their respective time blocks). They make it two hour intervals so teams can manage waiting for the second hour. He told me this is how they have run it BUT he wanted to change it so that you would be picked randomly to go in a certain order...that doesn't sound fun. If he decides to go that route then we will probably get that list at registration.
Call me coach.

Why? In your state you have to do building events in a specific time slot? In ours, some last the entire day. Same thing with our region.
