To FTC Teams...

Guess what?? It's time for the information you have all been waiting for: HOW TO ORDER KITS, WHAT'S IN THEM, and HOW MANY CAN YOU BUY???

1. Ordering

Starting tomorrow, Wednesday, May 13, 2009, you can order kits in the same manner that you did last year, either through the Team Information Management System (TIMS, https://my.usfirst.org/ftc/tims/site.lasso) or by calling Pitsco at 1-800-362-4308. You will not be able to order a kit until FTC has received a Purchase Order or form of payment for the $275 program registration fee.
