FIRST Tech Challenge Florida State Championship - Call for Volunteers

Post by Admin on Fri Jan 15, 2010 9:39 am

Hello All,

The following email was sent this evening to our volunteers from last year's FTC Florida State Championship. Each year it is a struggle to recruit the 70 to 80 volunteers needed to run our state championship. Please help us recruit volunteers by forwarding this information to your team parents and encourage them to support your team by volunteering their time at the state championship.


The FIRST Tech Challenge is having a terrific season! We have a terrific game called Hot Shot!, 48 FTC teams in Florida, 5 qualifying competitions and a State Championship. FTC teams in Florida will participate in up to three qualification competitions on their way to earning an invitation to attend the FTC Florida State Championship. Teams earn an invitation to participate in the state championship by winning an award at any of the five state qualifying competitions. Students, coaches and robots around the state are gearing up for an exciting FTC Florida State Championship.

Planning for the competition is well underway. . .
- The University of South Florida in Tampa is once again hosting the state championship in their Recreation Center on Saturday, February 27, 2010.
- Lupton's Catering is providing great BBQ for volunteers and teams.
- The field lighting and audio are good-to-go.
- We have a DJ with lots of FIRST experience, and . . .

Now we need volunteers! We had a terrific group of volunteers running the FTC State Championship in 2009 and we hope that everyone is able to join us again this year for the new FTC game Hot Shot!.

Last year's competition was a lot of fun, and for the first time, we finished early!!! We have improved on the pioneering procedures we used at last season's state championship and I am pleased to report that all three qualifying tournaments we have run so far this season have finished between 40 and 90 minutes early.

I hope you are able to join us at the FTC Florida State Championship on February 27th! Please visit the following web page to view descriptions of the volunteer assignments and to complete the online registration form:
