2/25/15 There will not be an Opening Cermony ... will be rolled into the Closing Ceremony, which will begin at 4:00 in the Main Gym.
2/25/15 Signup Events Pre-Signup - B & C Divisions. E-Mail will be sent to all coaches by Monday, 3/2 announcing opening of online event pre-signup.
2/27/15 BLOCK Signups - Picture This (B) & Protein Modeling (C) Divisions. Rather than individual sign-up times, teams must sign up blocks of time (e.g., 9-10, 10-11, etc., as identified on the unified schedule). All students registered for that block MUST arrive at the top of the hour (e.g., 9:00 for 9-10 block; 10:00 for 10-11 block, etc.). They may (or may not) need to stay the whole hour ... but don't plan on being able to leave early. All teams from the same school MUST register for the same BLOCK. [Hopefully this won't be an issue with the online pre-sign-up software!] ... 3/2/15 Update: See Protein Modeling below for additional info.
2/27/15 Team List / Team Room Assignments - posted to Team Registration page.
2/27/15 Team Check-In 7:30 - While teams may arrive and go to team rooms after 7AM, Team Check-In will not start until 7:30 (letter says 7:00) ... check-in is at LAIR (Bldg 5) starting at 7:30AM.
3/2/15 Online Sign-Up - Per e-mail sent to coaches 3/1, ESUS online sign-up will start 3/3 at 3AM (at least I hope ... previously, the system keyed off Central time where the server is located; but this year it appears to be set on Pacific time ... at any rate, it should be available by 3AM our time Tuesday) ... and closes noon Thursday. Summary points of what was in e-mail:
  • Coaches - whether head or assistant - are responsible for sign-ups. Do not forward log-on info to students (with exception made for team captain if absolutely necessary).
  • Coach of record will receive auto-generated e-mails from ESUS. Let me know if e-mail needs to go to someone else (only 1 e-mail per team allowed on ESUS).
  • See auto-generated e-mail (sent 3/1) for User Name & Password.
  • B sign-up URL (and C for Air Trajectory & Bridge Building): http://esus.us/eastwa/b/login.php
  • C sign-up URL (for all other C building events): http://esus.us/eastwa/c/login.php
    Let Sue Murphy know if you have questions/issues with logging onto site.
3/2/15 Protein Modeling (C Division) - Since we have secured a coach to run Protein Modeling, we want to reduce block times to 10-11 & 11-12. This is what is currently on ESUS online sign-up. If this presents undue burden for any team, please contact Sue Murphy ASAP and the 12-1 block will be added.
3/5/15 ESUS Online Sign-Ups - Extended until 9AM Friday. Several C teams have not signed up yet ... and a few B teams didn't sign up for all events ... so just giving a little extra time to complete pre-sign-up. If you do not complete pre-sign-up by 9AM Friday, you will need to go to each event site on Saturday and sign up with the event supervisor.
3/6/15 Room Changes - The following has been changed on schedule:
Dynamic Planet B&C - 8/206
Impound for Protein Modeling (C) - 8/114
