Tournament Schedule

The tournament schedule is posted below. Registration changes such as team name and contact info updates should be completed in the NYDI Registration System.

Team Managers should review our 7 Secrets to a Successful Tournament presentation, and should also study the Travel Guide for Teams (available in February). This has very important information about procedures on the day of the tournament. You should also review our Team Manager Tournament TipsA Typical Tournament Day, and Picking up and Understanding Your Scores.

It's also a good time to review your Challenge, Rules of the Road, and any Published Clarifications. You should start completing your Tournament Data Forms.

Awards Ceremony

The Awards Ceremony will take place around 4:45 pm. Please note that there is some uncertainty in the starting time of the ceremony, as we cannot begin until all of the teams' scores have been tabulated.

Advancement Policy

Teams which achieve 1st or 2nd place will advance to the NYDI Affiliate Tournament. In the case of a tie, the tied teams will advance according to their rank, and will not affect the advancement of teams at a lower rank.

Additionally, any team whose total score is within 10 points of an advancing team and has won (1st place) in any competition portion (Central Challenge, Team Choice Elements or Instant Challenge) will be given the opportunity to be evaluated by a second set of Appraisers, and therefore advanced.
