In one word: hectic! The day's schedule is, roughly: 1) registration (turn in forms etc) 2) find a home for your team (typically a table in the cafeteria) 3) coaches meeting 4) practice round 5) first competition round 6) lunch 7) second competition round 8) third competition round 9) research presentation for judges 10) core values presentation for judges 11) closing ceremonies 1-4 and 11 are fixed events (i.e. same for each team); 5-10 will vary -- i.e. while one team presents their research, another will present core values and yet others will compete. You definitely want to have an assistant coach and ideally several parents around to help wrangle kids and help move stuff from place to place.
