International Team Information
It may be possible for SOLAR SPLASH to arrange for logistical support for qualifying international teams which will potentially provide assistance in shipping a team’s boat and other hardware to the competition. In order to determine if such assistance will be possible, Solar Splash must be notified as soon as possible of all international teams that are seriously considering entry in the competition. Notification of intent to enter must be received from any international team wishing to be considered for shipping support on or before January 31 of the year of the event to allow adequate time to determine if such arrangements can be secured.

This grassy area is on the south side of the lake at the Clark County Fairgrounds. The team paddock tent and the administration tent will likely go in this area. Each team will have a paddock area of approximately 20′ x 20′ to store the boat and trailer, tools, etc. Security will be provided at night during the competition. Electricity will be provided to each team’s paddock area.
The lake bottom is rocky and drops off fairly quickly. Boat launching is best done with a lightweight dolly or trailer.
