    Campus Map:   Campus Map
    Parking:  Note that our lot will fill up quick.  I need all busses to drop off and then move away from the loading zone to park until needed later.  For family cars, once the main lot fills you will need to find spaces in the surrounding neighborhoods and on Whitney ave.  Please respect our neighbors and their driveway access and follow all normal parking codes.  There is a loading/ unloading area right up front but do not park there.   
    Scoring Room/ Check In:  Room #2 will be the check in room for teams and judges and also the scoring room during the day.  Please have a coach check in your team by 8:00am.  The room will open at 7:30am.
    Hospitality/ Judge Work Room:  We will provide a hospitality room for coaches and judges throughout the day.  It will be room #1.  It will be stocked with snacks and beverages.  This room can also serve as a quiet place to go to grade test papers or take a break.  Churchill parent volunteers will be checking in on proctors throughout the day with snacks and beverages.  
    Awards:  Trophies will be given for the top 6 placing teams, only 1 team per school is eligible for a trophy.
                   Medals will also be given to the top 6 in each individual event. 
    Prizes:  Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors we HOPEFULLY will be giving out gift cards to the team that wins each individual event.  The top 3 overall teams will also get a gift card prize.  Thank you to our sponsors (see above).
    Hotels:  There are lots of great options around town within a 20 min drive from campus.  I suggest the cluster near Arden Way at Capital City Freeway or the cluster at HW 50 and Sunrise Blvd.  
    Things To Do:  We encourage teams to make it a weekend in Sacramento and find something to do in addition to the tournament while in town.  We suggest visiting the world class California Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento (along with other points of interest in Old Sac) or taking a tour of the CA State Capitol building.  
    Home Base Rooms: Teams will be assigned a "base camp" room somewhere on campus (see below).  They can use this room for down time between events and to store equipment during the day.  Please respect these rooms and leave them in the same condition as when you arrive.  Clean up all trash, do NOT disturb any of the teacher materials/ equipment in the rooms.  
    Facilities Info:  Details and pictures of event rooms and other equipment will be posted here.  MP room dimensions, structure testing device, vehicle room floor etc
    Questions?:    Email the Churchill Co-Head Coach at stephanie.bauman@sanjuan.edu
    Results/ Tests:  Teams will leave the competition with a hard copy of the results plus all of the graded tests taken by their team mebers plus keys to the exams.  We plan to post master copies of the tests with keys to a group google drive for everyone to view after the tournament.
