1. Build-it Day - Saturday, October 9, 2010

The season's first Build-it day will be on Saturday, October 9, 2010. FTC Team 1902 (Exploding Bacon) and the local chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) are hosting the Build-it day at the Orange County Extension Education Center in Orlando. The day's activities will include, workshops, lunch, robot building time, and practice time on the Get Over It! playing field. Technical experts will be on-hand to help teams take their robots to the next level. Teams should expect to end the day with a robot that is several steps ahead of where it would have been after a regular team meeting.

Please register if your team is planning on attending so that there is an accurate head-count for lunch. The registration page is located here:

The Orange County Extension Education Center is located near the Orlando International Airport. The address and web site are as follows:

6021 South Conway Road
Orlando, FL 32812

The Schedule is as follows:

2. Qualifying Tournament Registration

Qualifying Tournament Registration Round 1 ends Thursday, October 7, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Teams can only register for one tournament in each registration round.

If you would like to attend more than one tournament this year, register your team before Round 1 closes.

Registration Round 2 opens for all eight Qualifying Tournaments on Thursday, October 7, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

3. FIRST Consent and Release Form

Students, coaches and mentors attending a Build-it Day, Qualifying Tournament or State Championship are required to turn in a completed Consent and Release form at every event. The form is available for download from the FIRST web site:
