Too bad the movie cuts right through the flying session...
Isn't it also screening on Thursday night? Not sure when but that's when I'm planning to see it
True, although I'm pretty sure Friday would gather more people bc I think most teams are arriving late Thursday or later

But now that these two conflict I'm just disappointed
There's enough flexibility in both options now that you should have no trouble if you really want to do both. I think Nats2019 has been more than accommodating to requests thus far.

You're in luck! We actually changed the screening times (it'll be updated on the site this weekend), but the two Friday times are now 10:00 am - 11:30 am and 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm!

The Thursday night screening is going to be from 6:30 - 8:00. We actually placed it in this time slot to encourage some teams to go to early/late dinner and spread everyone out more at the dining halls. Plus, if we did the screening any later it would conflict with the Ice Cream Social/Game Night we've planned (hmm, I guess this counts as us announcing that!)

I don't know if this has been said already or not, but is the room for codebusters a lecture hall or a standard classroom? I personally really don't like working in lecture halls because of the way our team works together. Any info from either the people running the tournament or have been to the cornell invitational would be much appreciated.

The site does not show all the rooms in Baker. I just got lucky. The other facilities site i found for Cornell had all interesting info (floor plans. etc) password protected...

I noticed that on the Activities Schedule, it says that students must bring their meal card/lunch ticket to the boxed lunch pickup on Saturday. Will coaches be able to pick up the whole team's set of boxed lunches at once, or should students go individually to get lunch?

FYI: Team Numbers

Known 1st place teams to decline a bid include Waynflete (ME) and LISA Academy West (AR) in B, and Waynflete (ME) and St. Johnsbury's Academy (VT) in C. I'm uncertain if the two teams that are higher than Walpole in this PDF were eligible to attend nationals: https://scioly.org/wiki/images/d/d7/201 ... esults.pdf

The Fall Mountain Team is actually the main Walpole MS team with their five HS Freshman.
