Long-Term Problem Procedures
Problem 1: The Great Parade

     The team will enter the Staging Area with its vehicle and all props. The competition site will be a minimum of 20' x 24' with the course marked as shown in Figure A within the problem. The Staging Area Judge will ask the team to place its vehicle in the Back Lot (BL). Once the vehicle is "completely within the BL," the judge will request the team members to return to the Staging Area and remain there until the Timekeeper signals to begin.

     The team will attempt to travel the parade route at least three times appearing as at least three different floats followed by a reverse procedure in order to be eligible for maximum score. The team will present a technical feature and a Spectacular Celebration with its own technical feature.
