   * The team, coaches and perhaps parents should bring in props about one hour before the Long- Term performance time. The building will seem chaotic … people everywhere, carrying large trees, small children, wide signs, narrow backdrops. Somehow this sorts itself out, as people take teams’ possessions to the appropriate areas. Teams should find an area where they can set down their props, preferably near the staging or pre-staging area for their problem. The team should examine things for any damage and make repairs. **ONLY team members may make any repairs!** Then it’s time to get into costume, while the coach or parents keep an eye on the props to keep them from getting trampled.   * The team, coaches and perhaps parents should bring in props about one hour before the Long- Term performance time.

   * BALSA teams must have the structure weighed at least one hour before scheduled performance time (see specific tournament’s guidelines for weigh-in). If the structure does not conform to requirements,​ the team will be given a period of time to try to reduce the weight. They may then have the structure re-weighed. The teams will pick up their sealed structures (which have been weighed) no earlier than 25 minutes before performance time, and then proceed to the check-in area.   * BALSA teams must have the structure weighed at least one hour before scheduled performance time (see specific tournament’s guidelines for weigh-in).

-  * At 20minutes ​before their scheduled Long-Term performance time, the team should bring props and/or vehicle, etc. to the pre-staging area. All long term problems have a “Pre-Staging” area where a Judge takes the team’s paperwork and may measure things, looks for any safety concerns, etc. +  * At 20 minutes ​before their scheduled Long-Term performance time, the team should bring props and/or vehicle, etc. to the pre-staging area.

   * Long-Term performances will begin from what is called the Staging Area. This is an area near the performance site (almost always only a few yards away.) The team takes all items for the performance to the Staging Area from Pre-Staging Area. When the previous team has left, and the judges are ready, the Timekeeper will bring the team into the performance site. The coach may sit in a specially designated seat … or anywhere in the audience. When everyone is ready, the Timekeeper will say “Begin” and the team’s eight minutes starts.   * Long-Term performances will begin from what is called the Staging Area.

   * After the performance,​ [[Judge Interaction|judges will come up and speak to the team]] to gain a better understanding of their solution. Team members should understand that giving a clear explanation and showing excitement for all their hard is important - points are still on the table after the performance ends!   * After the performance,​ [[Judge Interaction|judges will come up and speak to the team]] to gain a better understanding of their solution.
