Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah: Workshop Sign-Up

WESO is pleased to announce that we will hold Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah practice sessions on May 7 and May 14 in the Program room of the Ann Arbor District Library, Pittsfield Branch (2359 Oak Valley Dr., Ann Arbor, MI  48103). We are inviting each team to sign up for a one-hour long slot.  Note: we are defining a team as ONE grade from ONE school.Each team is limited to one coach and three competitors. To maximize social distancing, other attendees will not be admitted into the program room (but may enjoy the library).

During this practice session, the WESO competition equipment, including timing systems, will be set up. Dimensions/angles utilized on this equipment may not be the same as they will be on competition day, but will be within the window of conditions outlined in the event description, and disclosed to the participants. Using their own harnesses, tools and supplies, teams are able to construct cable cars and run them down the zip line. Teams will then have an opportunity to make multiple changes to their cable cars and see the impact on zip line times.  Students may also be able to practice/be coached on releasing their cable cars in a repeatable manner.  
The event supervisors will not be present, but WESO will have a copy of the event description on hand and will attempt to answer any questions asked. Any questions that can not be answered readily from the event description will be forwarded to the event supervisors.

Currently, the library requests that masks be worn. Coaches will be responsible for sanitizing table work surfaces prior to their teams departing (WESO will have sanitizing wipes on hand).
