Haven't heard of this until now, but that'd be pretty cool if he showed up somewhere. :)

Just a few questions: When will the event supervisor lists be uploaded, and will there be auto-loaders for both Div B and Div C Boomilever? Moreover, when will all the homerooms be sorted out and posted?

The NES list is typically included in the tournament program, so I wouldn't expect one until much closer to the tournament, possibly not until you arrive and check in. I also doubt you'll be able to answer your Boomilever question until the coaches/rules meeting after opening ceremonies - this information isn't typically released.

Nick is right. The balsa structure events are pretty consistently run year to year - figure out what was done last year and that will be a good indication.

They have like the weirdest names ever that don't really give any clues as to what the competition is.

When will they release the specific rules for the events, like the page requirements for a notesheet?

Just posted! We were trying to get a digital copy of the rules to make them look "nicer", but given how old these events are, some of them are just photos of the old rules!

Anyone know what's up with teams not receiving residence/dining hall assignments until they arrive? That's what an email I got today said would be the case, but I'd like to know our building assignments before the trip (even if it's much later than now, like after the portal closes in mid-May) unless there's a logistical reason on Housing & Dining's end why that cannot happen.

Teams will actually be getting their residence hall assignments on a rolling basis based on when they send in their final roster (naming who will be staying on campus and who wants to share rooms). The wording in the email may have been mistaken in that regard. Solving the puzzle of how to fit nearly 2,000 people in the residence halls most efficiently will take some time, but teams will definitely get their assignments before check-in!
