The game has a moon theme. The playing field is being called a crater due to its shape. "Regolith" should have been in quotations, as the hard polymer sheeting is being used for a visual representation only. There are no rocks and dust and other fun things. The whole point was to create a slippery surface that's hard to drive on.

While there are doubtlessly many clueless administrators in the world, there's also something to be said about being smart in protecting yourself. During high school, I poked around aimlessly on some network drives and found an unsecure, unencrypted text file of sensitive personal information on a lot of students. I didn't really have any business looking, but there was also nothing at all keeping me out. Instead of talking to the first administrator I could find or shooting off a "Hey look at this" email, I spoke to the instructor with whom I had the best relationship with and could convince that I had no bad intentions, showed him the problem, and asked him to escalate it anonymously. He did so, the problem was fixed, case closed.

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.
