The Computer Lab in Coates Hall will be available on Friday from 4:30 PM until 10:00 PM for teams to practice. Any code typed during this time will be lost. Teams will also be able to register and get their packets during the early part of the evening.
At 6:00 PM, we plan to have the traditional Welcome (complete with Pizza and Cola) in the Coates Auditorium. We will also have music provided by a very talented musician who goes by the name John.
At 7:00 PM, we will have a brief Welcome speech. Following this talk, we will have the formal review of the rules and procedures. Any and all questions will be taken at this time (hopefully answered also). It is important for all teams to be present during this time (if possible).
After this, Kudo (Executive Director at 3DO) will speak briefly. He will then adjourn to another classroom for a Question and Answer session. Learn all about the Game Industry from smebody who is there.
Friday evening will also include some entertaiment and diversion. We will have some movies playing in a few of the multimedia classrooms. Our goal is to provide a relaxing evening for the tense as well as a practice area for those who desire one last practice.
