E-Olympics is open only to Organizations registered with ESC. Although everyone is welcome to watch and enjoy the ridiculousness!
(ESC will be providing Pizza)
5pm Cake Decorating Contest
Rules: Organizations competing must have a homemade cake decorated to reflect their type of engineering or something specific to their organization. Cake must be home baked and decorated but boxed cake mixes and premade frosting are allowed – although not as tasty as from scratch! Minimum Size: 9” round, No maximum. Organizations are responsible for transporting the cakes to judging. Judging will be based equally on taste and appearance. Our hope is to have members of the faculty judge this portion of the night.
Each organization is allowed to submit one to three members to be judged on appearance to see who is the “geekiest”. Outrageous clothing is appreciated as long as contestants are fully clothed and no inappropriate language or images are shown – Remember teachers will be present! Each person present will receive one vote to decide who are our winners.
Undecided Time: SWE Bowl first round. (Worth twice as many points as a normal competition!)
6pm Tug O’ War
Will be held in the grassy area in front of the main building. Two teams will be playing against each other each have the end of one rope, whose center is marked with a flag. A twenty-foot space will be marked off and the game will begin with the flag in the middle of the space; the first team to get the flag past their marking of the space wins. THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF TUG O’ WAR IS THE PARTICPANTS SAFETY!! The rope must be gripped in the participants’ hands – NO WRAPPING OF THE ROPE AROUND HANDS OR ANY OTHER BODY PART IS ALLOWED! No spiked or studded shoes will be allowed. Each team will consist of a maximum of five members.
After: MOVIE NIGHT: Star Trek
ESC will provide popcorn. Participation Points for each organization in attendance – not for each member from the organization in attendance.

A combination of fun, adventure and team building! Expect Hula Hoops, String and blindfolds. 4 people per team participating and as many as wanted on the sidelines offering support and suggestions.

4:30pm (which is right after E-Day Set up): Mario Kart Competition and
ESC will provide snacks. Mario Kart Competition will involve four players going up each other at once in a single elimination tournament. Each group can have up to two participation spots in the tournament. Members from the same organization can switch out for the same participation spot but one person may not do two participation slots by themselves! Tournament rounds will be conducted by participation in different cups from Mario Kart (3 races in each cup).
10 points: for getting first place in a competition
8 points: for getting second place in a competition
5 points: for participation in a competition
Notes: For SWE Bowl points will be doubled, for Movie Night and Speaker only participation points will be awarded. For Mario kart and the Geek-Off only one set of points will be awarded even though each organization is allowed two entries.
