It will be available in the Science Olympiad store on September 6.

Actually now that I think about it this is a good point; Hovercraft wasn't in the conflict blocks. My best guess is that it will be run similar to Mission Possible (although tbh that's not exactly a very good guess).

Seeing as how I personally helped develop the National schedule, and I have some of the first physical copies of the Rules Manual sitting in front of me right now, I can assure you this is what is published in the rules manual. Both Disease and Ex. Design will be in the 7-8AM blocks. Hovercraft will be a signup event. I can't guarantee that individual States will follow this National schedule.

Perfect. Thanks for your help on this.

Erasmus Wembley, since you're asking for the SoCal State schedule, it'll be released this weekend. Your Regional (San Diego) schedule will be posted after that. We typically post the schedule over Labor Day weekend. And yes, I can also confirm Chalker's conflict blocks since I also have my rules manuals in front of me.

Thanks. We haven't formalized our lineup yet, but it did allow us to start thinking about possible combinations. We'll wait for the San Diego schedule, but we were able to get some work done.

Just pointing it out, this seems like the best possible schedule IMO. It only has completely unrelated events conflicting, and I like the idea of Ex Design getting more time for grading.
