2016 Instant Combustion Workshop

Important Weather Update

8:15 PM, January 15
We have decided to delay the morning session by 60 minutes. The afternoon session will take place as planned. Because teams will be coming from all over the state, we realize that driving conditions will vary quite a bit. We urge everyone to use their own discretion in deciding whether or not local driving conditions will allow them to make the trip. We would not want anyone to come if they don’t feel that it would be safe, and we will offer a refund to any team that decides not to attend. Teams that are scheduled for the morning session are welcome to attend the afternoon session instead.
