You will NOT be refunded your fee and teams will be moved to the wait list if they have not completed the payment by February 25, 2024.

We will be using three Steel Panel fields elevated 24 inches high for competition.The fields will NOT have GPS on them. All fields use anti-static tiles. Depending on the number of teams that wish to do Robot Skills from a survey that your team will be sent at a later date, we will have one and no more than two Steel Panel Skills Fields set up. They will not be raised. They will have GPS on them. Teams will be allowed to run no more than three autonomos and three driving runs. We plan on having each team run eight qualifying matches to get to Alliance Selection. We will work at staying on time with the Match schedule. It is each teams responsibility to manage their time for skills runs and interviewing, and Queue up for their qualifying matches on time. Skills Fields will close at the START of the last Qualifying Match. PLEASE bring robots ready to be inspected and PASS. Please be on the lookout for more info regarding inspection as we get closer to the event.

Additional preorders of one pizza are available at $12.00 (deadline same as above). To receive your FREE pizza you must acknowledge by email that you want the FREE pizza by deadline 3/6/24.

Offsite lunch options are limited and teams should plan accordingly since we will have a short lunch break from 12:00-12:45. We also want to limit teams being offsite.
