Similar to S2016, each team can have at most 2 programmers but any number of other members (designer of graphics, music, sound, storyboard, character, level, etc.). All Taylor students are invited, not just CSE students or programmers. Freshmen are encouraged to participate. Bringing friends is also welcomed. The competition has a $10/participant fee to help in covering cost of trophies, snacks, and drinks. An informational meeting was scheduled for Tuesday, September 20 at 6:00pm in Euler 218. Meal transfers for Friday and/or Saturday evenings are available until noon on Thursday, September 22. After the noon Sep 22 deadline, meal transfers will not be available. A sign-up sheet is available in the CSE Department. Or, sign up electronically by sending an email to Lara Horsley (email) with your Taylor ID. If you email before September 22, specify which days your want meals transferred (Neither, Friday, Saturday, Both). Each participant must send an email from their own Taylor email account. In other words, you may not sign up other people.
