This year, the Expo Tournament will start right after the Expo Walkabout. No going back and forth this year! At about 4:45 pm, you'll hear our announcer tell you to start finishing up your walkabout, turn in your Expo Walkabout Passport, grab a refreshment and make your way to your starting booth! You'll want to be at your team's starting booth at 5:00 pm!

What are the rules?
We have three simple rules:
1. Every player on the team has to compete in at least one in-booth competition
2. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, but be respectful of your colleages
3. HAVE FUN!
How do we gain points?
It depends on the booth. Most of our booth competitions this year are timed challenges, so you'll want to complete the task as quickly as possible. The faster you are, the more points!
Points will be tallied up after the end of the round robin play. While we're calculating the top 4 teams, we'll be doing some awesome give-aways! Make sure you complete your Expo passport and turn it in before the start of the Expo Tournament to be eligible for the giveaways!
