Agenda

2:00pm - 3:00pm - Check-In/Registration/Inspection

NOTE: All teams must be through inspection by 3:00pm. Also, please do not come into the building before 1:45pm.  We are hosting an elementary tournament earlier in the day and will not have space for additional teams/spectators until we are able to "flip" the facility from the morning tournament.

2:00pm - Fields Open for Skills Challenges

NOTE:  Each team will be able to run a maximum of 3 robot (driver) skills challenges and 3 programming challenges.  3 fields will be available for Skills Challenge attempts from 2:00pm - 3:10pm, but only 1 field will be open for skills challenges during qualification matches (3:30pm - 6:30pm) .  Teams should attempt to finish as many skills challenges before 3:10pm to reduce the amount of runs needed between qualification matches.  The Skills Field will close at the end of qualificiation matches (approximately 6:15pm).
