*NOTE: Backup dates may only be used in case of inclement​ weather or other emergency. Scheduling conflicts and network connectivity issues are not valid bases for competing on ​the backup dates. Please refer to paragraph 5013 of last season's CyberPatriot VIII Rules Book for more information. There is only one backup date, rather than a full backup weekend, for each CP-IX round.
