The Central Florida Tech Grove is hosting a Cyber Security Capture the Flag competition at the Tech Grove and online. This competition will be held 05/24 starting at 0800 where everyone competing must either be in person or logged into the event. The range will go live at 1800 on 5/25 and be shut down at 2000. We will start back up at 0800 3/25 and cease at 2200. The final day will be 3/26 0800 until 1500, with awards starting at 1600 and ending at 1700. If you are here in person at The Tech Grove, there will be a Smash Brothers competition going on at the same time as the CTF event on Saturday and Sunday only, not Friday. You must be here on Friday in order to register for the Smash Brothers competition on Saturday and Sunday. There will be an opportunity for money prizes at the completion of the CTF for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams (4th and 5th depending on funding); as well as money prizes for the Smash Brothers tournament. The purse for the CTF prizes will be roughly ~$10,000+ (depending on funding). There is limited space available for this competition. We encourage teams for the event, but individuals may compete as well. 

The focus of this event will be for the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Space Force to identify key talent for their organizations, have fun, and bragging rights as the winner of our inaugural CTF Cyber Competition at The Tech Grove. This is planned to be an annual event hosted by The Tech Grove for its government customers.
