FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (AND ANSWERS):
1. Panel Quiz. The rules on page
25-26 of CAPM 52-4 state that a wrong answer when "stealing" a
question that the opposing team answered incorrectly results in a
10/15 point deduction. However, the game play flow chart on page 56
states that there is no deduction in this instance. Which rule will
4. In 52-4 attachment 2 it indicates that questions for aerospace will be taken from www.space.com . Can you confirm that this will be the only source for aerospace current events questions?
5. Only one substitution is permitted during the competition. A subsequent reversal is not permitted. As long as no substitution is made, designated alternates will be required to participate Written Exam, and Mile Run. What is the point of this substitution? When and why would it be made?
A substitution with an alternate can occur if a team member can not continue competing in subsequent events, usually due to illness. Note that Panel Quiz was dropped from one of the events. So alternates will run and do the written exam, but their scores will count only if a substitution was made. If a substitution is made, the alternate must complete all remaining events.
6. Which Leadership manuals will the 2013 competition use?
Both the GLR Cadet Competition and the National Cadet Competition will use the new Leadership manuals for the exam and panel quiz questions. The new Aerospace Dimensions pamphlets will also be used.
Teams should bring all required equipment to perform in the competition as stated in the competition rules. Unless approved in advance, GLR will require each Color Guard team to bring their own flags and flag bases. It is recommended that each team use their state flag as the subordinate flag.
Transportation to and from the competition is not the responsibility of CAP. Privately owned vehicles travel to or from such activity is performed strictly at the member’s own risk (reference CAPR 77-1 para 6c and CAPR 52-16, para 8-10) and is not under CAP direction and control.
