From NYDI:

Some additional resources and information for Team Managers.

Program Materials
Team Challenges, Rules of the Road, Roadmap and Travel Guide for Teams (available after January 1, 2015) – the basic documents which govern DI challenges are available when you register your team.

Challenge Clarifications
There are two types of Clarifications: The Published Clarifications and the Team Clarifications:

Published Clarifications
When there is an issue in a Team Challenge or the Rules of the Road that all teams should know about, we will post a Published Clarification. A Published Clarification supersedes the Rules of the Road and the Team Challenge, as well as a Team Clarification. Every team is expected to know the Published Clarifications for its Challenge.

New! Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and you will be alerted when a new Published Clarification is posted.

Asking for a Team Clarification
2014-15 Team Clarifications are now open! To ask for a Team Clarification first go to the Published Clarifications/Your Challenge and find the link there.

Before your team asks a Team Clarification please read all the Published Clarifications for your Challenge. Your team may ask up to 10 questions for your Team Challenge. We will answer your team’s questions and send the answers directly back to you. The question and answer will not be shared with any other team. The deadline to ask for Team Clarifications is February 15th.
