What Solar Car Teams Need to be Thinking About

Good Morning Solar Car Teams,

As June 1st approaches, I felt it was important to remind teams about two upcoming deadlines:

June 1st - Deadline for submitting the Certificate of Liability Insurance for your solar car. [Rule 8.8]
This is crucial. Without this certificate, the Race will not be able to secure you an Experimental Vehicle License necessary to drive cross-country. Failure to supply this certificate by June 1st will remove a team from the race roster. [See Event Update No. 5]

June 1st- Deadline for submitting the digital copy of your Team Scrapbook. [Rule 3.9] Please email your digital copy to lehmanm743@aol.com The actual hard copy of your scrapbook will be submitted during Oral Presentations on July 15th.

June 1st - Deadline for purchasing Awards Banquet Tickets at $20/person. After June 1st, the ticket price rises to $25/person. Ticket orders must be postmarked no later than June 1st to receive this discount.

Other Issues

(1) We are developing a new link on our web page designed to help teams with Scrutineering. This will be supplemented with an additional "How-to Pass Scrutineering" document by June 1st. http://www.solarcarchallenge.org/challenge/scrutineering.shtml

(2) Pi-Top Lap Tops were mailed to teams on Monday, May 14th. A special new telemetry application is in "the works."
