Site Restrictions

We want you to have fun, but also stay safe.  Therefore, please mind these site restrictions for your safety and ours, and to ensure the event is fun for all.

  • Do not use skateboards or ‘hoverboards’. This is a safety concern.
  • Do not use drones. This is a safety concern.
  • Do not bring bottled gas tanks (e.g. helium). This is a safety concern.
  • Do not use noisy devices, such as floor stompers, whistles and/or air horns.
  • Do not arrange for Internet access or phone lines from venue service providers or attempt to use venue internet connections reserved for event purposes (e.g., FMS or streaming).

  • Do not distribute any food products, such as candy, water, soft drinks or fruit.
  • Do not sell raffle tickets.
  • Do not use walkie-talkies.
  • Do not invite or bring live bands to play in the audience. This dilutes the presentation on the playing field and is too loud and confusing for the audience.
  • Do not play loud music in the Pit because it interferes with important announcements. If a team receives more than a warning or two, the power to the team Pit will be shut off and/or the music device confiscated.
  • Glitter and/or confetti are not permitted in any part of the venue. Should this policy not be followed, an appropriate charge will be assessed for the cleanup of this material.
  • Do not form “tunnels” during the Awards Ceremony. This can cause discomfort to those traveling through them and creates safety issues.
