Lunch Sunday will be served from the Science Center, first floor atrium. The Science Center and Harvard Yard are also close to the Broadway Supermarket as well as many commercial establishments in Harvard Square. Do NOT bring food (other than water) in competition spaces. 

Judge/Coach Lounge Areas

For Sunday afternoon and Monday in the Harvard Yard campus, we ask judges to report for pooling (and will communicate location during the tournament), and will dismiss once each round is underway. Coaches and unassigned judges are welcome to come to the coaches’ lounge at CRLS (Cambridge Rindge and Latin School).
