Entry Check In
Remember that you must be in line to register by 9am Saturday morning. Plan for plenty of travel time to make sure you’re not late! You will start your check in at that the “Entrant Gate” where you pay your site fee and obtain your site token. You will need a site token to have access to the judging rooms between 9am-10am. Then you’ll go to the “Entrant Registration” where you will be handed a packet; this will contain 1) an entry summary sheet; 2) judging forms for each entry; and 3) labels for your items and for your documentation. You will need to check the judging forms and make sure they are correct, and initial and return the summary form.
Please note: Setup starts at 9am BUT you cannot set up your entries before you complete gate and registration, so you’ll want to arrive with time to make it through check in before 9am, otherwise you’ll be cutting into your set up time.
Set Up Helpers
Send us the names (SCA and Legal) of any people who will be helping you set up your entries. We need them by Thursday evening so that we can compile the check in lists.
Remember that you have a limited time to set up all of your entries. If your entry is large, or you have a ton of entries, or you can’t be there for your set up time, you’re allowed to arrange for people to help you with set up. Event staff cannot help with set up.
Helpers must be checked in before they are allowed into the judging area, so make sure they know to arrive in time to register at make it through check in at the “Entrant Gate” before 9am, when morning entry setup starts. Helpers can register after 9am, but they can’t help with set up until they have registered.
Entry Set Up
All non-brewing entries, will be set up between 9am and 10am! There will NOT be an afternoon setup time, thanks to our judging steward’s masterful organization skills. Brewing entries will be set up offsite, see “Special Note for Brewing Entries” below.
Please, if you know that an entry isn’t going to completed in time for the event, let us know. Many categories only have one entry and we might have a judge driving a long distance to judge that category. The judges appreciate not having to drive that distance only to find that the entry didn’t show!
Things to do at Pentathlon
Bring your friends and family to enjoy the weekend! Highlights include:
Visit the village…you never know what you might learn and never, never underestimate what you have to share!
