Ravelympics starts tonight at 7:30p.m. when they light the Olympic Torch!!

Mass Cast-On at 6 pm Pacific Standard Time February 12, as the Opening Ceremonies begin in Vancouver! Find out what time that is in your local zone here. No casting-on before this moment! (with the exception of WIP/UFO event entries)
Ending time: 11;59:59 PST February 28; the closing ceremonies will be earlier that evening, but since the exact moment of torch extinguishment is unknown, we’ll give you until midnight. Each Ravelympics project must be marked Finished on the project page prior to the ending time in order to qualify for a medal.
What is Finished? Does it mean blocked? Ends woven in? Sewn together? Photographed? That’s up to you. See the big rule at the top: Challenge YOURSELF. Do you feel it’s finished without the ends woven in, or before blocking? Then mark it finished. If not, don’t. Be honest with yourself, and we’ll celebrate with you.
The Finish Line: Each event will have its own FINISH LINE thread on the Ravelympics 2010 board. Post details of your finished object in the thread(s) for the event(s) in which it is competing. (Details of what to post – link to project page and picture, for example – will be listed in the thread.) The FINISH LINE threads will be open for a day or two after the closing ceremonies, so if you can’t get a pic and post by the official closing time, just cross as soon as you can.
BobicusMaximus will hand out medals (blog badges) to each finisher in the event threads.
You’ll be able to follow your team and event progress on the special Ravelympics stats page that Casey’s magic machine assembles out of all properly tagged projects. Chat and cheer in special threads for each team and
