Thanks to everyone who responded to my question with valuable information.

NxtGenRobo is looking forward to spending both days.


Thx

All I can say is:  ditto.  Go have fun, 
experiencem and celebrate..
 
To answer the "stay the night" question, I don't 
know what most teams are doing but if you live a ways away, I'd suggest spending 
both nights (Friday and Saturday) in Harisonburg.  It is a great time 
and the team will be rested for both days.  We'll be staying both 
nights.

>The two day commitment is so worth the 
  effort.  Based on last year: Project and Core Values judging is on the 
  first day. They also run sessions for the kids that can sign up for for part 
  of the morning.  The kids sign up in advanced but it is first come first 
  serve.  They transport the kids to the sessions and bring them back to 
  you. If memory serves me, this was the morning of Saturday.  Then project 
  and core values judging.

>>One more email from a newbie 
    coach (FBI #10032) who is about to venture to the Championship Tournament 
    for the first time.  Asking families and students to commit two whole 
    days of their weekend is tough, especially when you don't know the specifics 
    of the tournament. 
>>
>>How does the Championship Tournament (CT) compare 
    with the Regional Tournament (RT)?  If the first day only involves 
    judging, will it be a short day?  If it takes two days, are the judging 
    sessions twice as long?  Are there extra events at the CT that were at 
    the RT?  Do most teams stay the night or do they drive home and come 
    back?

>>Any extra information will be very helpful
