Washington TSA Rule Changes/ Updates

To allow us to better facilitate the competitive events based on our available space and schedule, WTSA has made modifications to the competitive events. Additionally, WTSA reserves the right to have fewer semifinalists than the rules call for or make other changes that are required at the conference in order to facilitate the events.
