Time zone for Explorer Class video submisson Deadline?

Post by draemr » Sun May 01, 2016 9:02 pm

I know it is late, looking in this years forums and the competition manual I have this question that doesn't seem to be answered:

If the Video submission has to be posted to the dropbox or google drive for MATE to view no later than May 1st 2016,
at which time zone is the change from May1st to May 2nd determined?

For instance, we are west coast time here in Oregon. For the purposes of this submission, does May 1st end at local 11:59:59 or could it be considered to be a time zone further west.

I apologize if this question has been asked and answered somewhere else, but I could not find it in the Explorer Class competition manual nor in the forums.

Thanks in advance.

The MATE Center is on the west coast, so we most often use Pacific Standard time - documents must be sent by 11:59:59 PST. Sometimes we use midnight Hawaii time, as that is nearest competition that we have to the international date line.
