Bulletin #3
October 22, 2018

Make your lunch and dinner selections in advance

This year, we are using Google Forms to determine who all will be on site (some coaches, for example, do not attend) and to collect meal selections. This requires a gmail account. The accounts are free*.

Everyone should complete an On Site Questionnaire. (If you do not plan to be on site you may exit the survey after you complete the first three questions.) The form will ask first for your email address. Please enter the email address that was used to add you to a team (which may or may not be your gmail account).

*Note: ICPC revamped the registration software, and the questionnaires that were used before are not working yet. Thank you for indulging us on this, this year.

Those who do not complete a form will have an arbitrary selection made for them.

~ Breakfast ~

When you arrive at the Contest, there will be a Continental breakfast available in the cafeteria. It will include fruit, rolls, juice, tea and coffee.

~ Lunch ~

Lunch will be provided by Habit Burger. You will have your choice of:

  • Charburger combo (single beef burger)
  • Veggie burger combo (single patty)
  • Grilled Chicken combo

Cheese will be available on request. You may request a lettuce wrap instead of a bun.

There will be two lunch shifts. Half of you will go to lunch while the other half does the warm-up; at the time specified on the schedule, the two groups will switch. You will be given a lunch slot assignment when your team signs in on the day of the contest.

~ Dinner ~

Dinner will be pizza.

Three kinds of pizza will be set out: cheese, cheese and veggie, and cheese and pepperoni. A limited number of veggie only (no cheese; just sauce and vegetables) will be made available, based on the number of people who select "veggie only" on the questionnaire.


Snacks and Drinks will be available during the contest at the Recharging Station in front of the MLK building (the computer lab building).

There will be nuts and fruit. A limited number of gluten free snacks will be held aside for those who self-identify as gluten free. Those who do so will be given tickets to request the snacks. About an hour before the contest ends, any remaining gluten free snacks will be set out for anyone.

About the food

The food choices shown are the only ones available to you. There are vending machines on campus; but, none of the cafeteria vendors will be open. There are no restaurants/fast food places within walking distance of the campus.

You are free to bring your own food; however, you will not be able to take it with you into the lab. There is no refrigeration available for you to use, so plan accordingly.


Parking Passes

This year, RCC does not require you to display a parking pass. You may park in any white or yellow striped space. Do not park in restricted spaces, such as "handicapped" or "faculty."

We recommend:

  • you park in the structure identified as #36 on the campus map; and,
  • you display a sign to let Security know why your vehicle is on campus. (A fillable PDF form you can use can be found here.)
