As you work with your teams and judges this week, please reinforce, to the point of repetitive repeatedness, the need for people to move as quickly as possible from round-to-round on Friday.
The incentive for this is, of course, to make sure we’re all in our hotel rooms in time for the Indiana/Kentucky game at 945 ET.
This game is, of course, not an excuse to be late on Saturday morning.
Students who are multiple-entered will be given an opportunity to excuse themselves from one round (either after or before performing) to make sure they can get dinner; judges will be told to expect that. The details of that system are forthcoming.
