The teams have arrived!

After a long drive across the frozen Nevada desert, the teams arrived at The Nugget earlier this afternoon...

On arrival, rooms and luggage were sorted and the groups began to prepare their rooms for tomorrow's competition.  Each team has a large suite where they will be sequestered for the majority of Thursday.  With help from Jason Cook from the College of Engineering's IT department, the five groups are ready to start Thursday as early as 6:00 in the morning to analyze the problem that has been presented to them.

  Before settling down for the night, there was a welcome banquet for the students and their faculty advisers.  They were treated to wonderful meal of salads, breads, tri-tip steak, bbq chicken and fried prawns that are the staple of every Nevada buffet courtesy of Granite Construction and Stacy and Whitbeck. Inc.  After topping that off with plenty of the desert, the students took one last break to test the limits of the Nugget's arcade.
