August Update

Here are some questions that I've heard so far. Please send any additional questions you have to D54Raceteam@conference.com so that they can be added to this list for all to see.

Most likely, someone else is wondering the same thing you are.

  • Q: When we submit our entry, what happens first?
    A: Once you've submitted your entry, you can start tracking points that your team captain will turn in at the end of each month. You'll hear from the race coordinator via e-mail (EasySpeak) with updates and upcoming challenge information.
  • Q: If I didn't sign up by August 8th, can I still form a team and join the race?
    A: Yes, you can join in the race at any point. However, you will not be able to earn points for past challenges or the previous month.

  • Q: Do I have to be an officer to be a team captain?
    A: No, you do not have to be an officer to form a team. Any member of the club can put a team together.
  • Q: Can I be a part of a team if I can't attend the conference?
    A: Yes! Members will get bonus points if they attend the conference but any member can help along the way.
  • Q: Does my team have to come up with the monthly challenges?
    A: No, the race coordinator, Erica Bourassa, will send out announcements of the monthly challenges with details of how to complete them.
  • Q: We are a small club. Should we join if we don't think we can win?
    A: Yes, join in the fun. Clubs that have under 10 members may team up with another club with fewer than 10 members to form a team.
  • Q: Our team missed the initial deadline. Will we still get points for submitting a team photo?
    A: Yes, your team will still get all 5 points. However, you will not be eligible for the bonus points for most creative. Also, the teams that entered by the initial deadline will be awarded an extra 2 points.
  • Q: What do we have to do to get points?
    A: Teams will accumulate points from August 1st – November 7th. Team captains will report points once a month to the race team. See the Amazing Race tab to see how points are accumulated.
