3. Install your Programming Templates - Reports from event organizers show that the biggest hold up at software inspection is teams not having the required templates installed on their NXTs!
a. ROBOTC users, follow these steps: Open Sample Programs->FIRST Tech Challenge->Autonomous Template->insert autonomous program into the template. Follow the same steps for your teleop programs.
b. For LabVIEW users, grab them from the NI website here!
c. Remember, commenting out the "Wait for start" command will also fail you at inspection.

4. E-watt saver bulb sales incentive - There's a $1,000 incentive award for the FTC team that sells the most e-watt saver bulbs! Check out the official contest page for details.

5. Travel Discounts for World Championship - If you are booking tickets through American Airlines online, please read the following instructions:
a. The discount can be booked online at for AA/AE flights only, without a ticketing charge.
b. Please allow at least 1 business hour for loading.
c. Use the Authorization Number noted without the preceding A as the Promotion Code. Please note: this may not apply to some contracts.
