23 September update of the 22 August post:
The website performance issues have been resolved. The site is fully operational for teams to access the guidelines and to register for the 2020-2021 competition. You also have access to the blog for information and your comments. There was a problem with one of the plug-in applications used to manage documents and photos. It caused performance issues that slowed access to levels that essentially were not usable. Unfortunately, one of these plug-ins is no longer supported. We replaced it and updated the site.
As a reminder, for 2020-2021 Group A teams will build a virtual rig and Group B will build a physical rig.
Note that the deadline to register is 1 November 2020.
We think the updates are completed, but if you see any issue, please email us. Thank you for your patience as we worked through these issues.
