Can your notebook still compete even if you fail inspection?

Just wondering

There is no rule against it if you remain on the schedule. I would hope that every effort is made to pass inspection in a timely manner as you will be DQ from every match until you pass inspection.

If you are dropped from the schedule, then you are not participating in the tournament and probably would not be considered for any judged awards.

For a definitive answer to this question, post it on the Q&A.
