Teams can compete in Mission 7 at one or the other venue (not both) under the same rules. All procedures will apply equally at either venue. New teams will register at either the "American Venue" or the "Asia/Pacific Venue”.
Two venues operating on opposite sides of the planet -- competition arenas, judging, rules, and procedures will be uniform across both venues. Asian Judges and American Judges will confer, and representatives from both venues will be present at the each venue. A winner for Mission 7 could emerge from either venue. New entries for Mission 7 should consider which venue suits them best, but once a venue is chosen, teams must continue at that venue (no switching). The online Application Form provides a space for designating the venue of choice.
