Timing of Case Materials and Competition:
The case materials typically are released the first or second week of September--this year the Case Brief is scheduled to be released on September 7, and the Full Packet of materials is set to be released on September 13 at 3:00 pm. Refer to the www.crf-usa.org
website for details. The first rounds of competition tend to be the first half of November. Advancing teams continue to compete through November. Typically, the finals are right after Thanksgiving. We do not have specific dates until the competition administrators announce them. We do not know whether the dates will overlap with any other activities. However, every member of the team has a specific role and is critical to the team. Thus, if a student has an overlap, the student must be willing to commit to the trial team competition first.
