*NOTE: Backup dates may only be used in cases of extreme weather or other emergencies. Scheduling conflicts and network connectivity issues are not valid bases for competing on the backup dates. Please refer to paragraph 4013 of the CyberPatriot IX Rules Book for more information. There is only one backup date, rather than a full backup weekend, for each CP-IX round.
