FTC Florida News - August 18, 2009

Post by Admin on Tue Aug 18, 2009 5:39 pm

Hello Teams,

Topics in this email are:
1. FTC Florida Kickoff
2. Qualifying Competitions
3. FTC Game Hint #1
4. FTC at FRC offseason competition, Tempest 'N' Tampa

------------------------
1. FTC Florida Kickoff

The FTC Florida Kickoff will be held in Orlando on Saturday, September 12, 2009. The tentative start time is 1:00 p.m. with doors opening to teams at 12:15 p.m.
At the kickoff, teams will watch the kickoff video and game animation, explore the playing field for the game, and attend a workshop on how to use the "game sensor." More information will be provided in a few weeks. The location for the kickoff is: 4-H Orange County UF/IFAS Extension Education Center, 6021 South Conway Road, Orlando, FL.

------------------------
2. Qualifying Competitions

We are looking for teams to host two qualifying competitions. Our first priority is to add a qualifying competition in south Florida. Next, we would like to add one competition along the I-4 corridor between Tampa and Daytona Beach. The host team for a qualifying competition receives an invitation to attend the FTC Florida Championship held on February 27, 2010.

FTC teams are hosting competitions on the following 4 dates:
- November 14th at Hillsborough High School in Tampa
- December 12th at Spruce Creek High School in Port Orange
- January 9th at Countryside High School in Clearwater
- January 30th at the University of South Florida Polytechnic in Lakeland

Open dates for the two new qualifying competitions are:
- November 21
- December 5 (Prefer to avoid this SAT Test date)
- January 16
- January 23 (Prefer to avoid this SAT Test date)
- February 6

Please let me know as soon as possible if your team is interested in hosting a competition. We need to finalize the competition dates by the end of September.

3. FTC Game Hint #1

FIRST posted the 1st game hint on the FIRST Tech Challenge blog: http://www.firsttechchallenge.blogspot.com/

The FTC Florida Forum has a thread to discuss the game hint: http://flftc.forumotion.com/ Look in the 2009-10 General Game Discussion section of the forum.

4. FTC at FRC offseason competition, Tempest 'N' Tampa

We will offer workshops for students and coaches at the FRC off-season competition, Tempest 'N' Tampa (TNT). A full FTC field for the 2009-10 game will be setup for teams to explore and test their robots. We will hold a scrimmage if 6 or more teams arrive with robots ready to play the game.

TNT is held in the Sun Dome on the campus of the University of South Florida in Tampa. The dates are October 23 & 24, 2009. Details about the FTC activities at TNT will be available in September. Visit the event web site for general event information: http://www.roboticsboosters.com/tnt/


I am looking forward to seeing teams at the season kickoff on September 12th!
