Takeoff: Spawn into your assigned gate 10 minutes before the event and do not push back until 2000Z. Runway in use will be decided by the takeoff judge right before the event. Taxi to it and take off, keeping atleast 3nm between each departure.
Approach: The Expressway Visual is a simple approach to runway 31 at KLGA. Start by approaching runway 4 until waypoint DIALS, and then follow to Long Island Expressway (highway) on the ground then make a left turn when the Expressway crosses with the Van Wyck Expressway until you reach the localizer to runway 31. Here is the approach chart, try to follow it as accuratly as possible to get the most points.

Approachs will by evaluated by @Dylan_M. He will give 1-5 points to each contestants based on how well they follow the approach, their speeds and altitudes, and their ability to maintain proper separation with other aircraft.
Landings will be evaluated by @Kian_Abbasi and will be worth up to 5 points depending on how smooth the landing is, where the touchdown point is, how lined up the aircraft is with the centerline, and other aspects.
