General Info

This will be an event to remember! All matches will take place on stage with a professional film crew live recording every match from multiple perspectives. The spectators will relax comfortably in the auditorium watching live as well as on two giant screens. 

Friday is an optional check-in and teams can run skills at this time as well.

Note: we have a lot of teams only so many hours in a day. Please make sure your robot can pass inspection before coming. We wont' be able to wait for teams to make major mods on robotics to pass. 

Also, if your team places a high priorty on skills, please consdier checking in on Friday night to make some or all of your runs. 

We'd also recommend bringing an extension cord and power strip.
