    Boldface: an unrelated competition, but something you might want to do as well. 


    Students who would like to participate must attend a minimum of 4 of the weekly meetings including the final meeting (January 25). We will create the teams based on the number of eligible students. An overflow of one or two participants will be considered alternates. If there is an overflow of three, then we will create an additional team. The final teams will be set on the last practice meeting (January 25).
