Setting up the rooms

After we arrived, the teams went to work setting up their competition rooms with computers, schedules, whiteboards, and anything else they need for their problems tomorrow.

The Nugget in Sparks, NV (just outside Reno) announced our arrival as well.

Getting to Reno

The teams started preparing in September for this week's competition.  Yesterday we packed everything up and teams made last minute preparations.

This morning the teams loaded up the bus and we drove to Reno.  Here are their smiling faces after a seven hour bus ride.
