11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
All teams must designate a captain.
There will be 18 teams total. You cannot change teammates during the event. All team members must be present and complete the puzzle.
All puzzles will be wrapped and may not be opened until your team hears GO!
Participants may not approach other team tables or distract other teams. Please put smartphones on vibrate.
If a participant must leave the room (i.e, restroom, phone call, etc...) the competition will continue.
Volunteers will be monitoring the area and watching as teams are close to finishing. When your team is down to five (5) pieces, raise your hand and a volunteer will come to your table and watch you finish and record your time. When you complete your puzzle, all team members yell "JIGSAW!"
The first team to complete the puzzle will be the 1st place winner. If no one team finishes before the set time period, the winner will be chosen based on the number of loose pieces. In the event of a tie, an additional five (5) minutes will be given to the remaining teams to continue working on the puzzle. Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place teams.
