FTC Florida News - September 2, 2009

Post by Admin on Thu Sep 03, 2009 10:07 am

Hello Teams,

Topics covered in this email are:

1. Season Kickoff
2. Qualification Competitions
3. Build-it/Practice Day

1. Season Kickoff
The FTC Florida Kickoff will be held on Saturday, September 12th at 1:00 p.m. We will play the Guess the Game Element Game, watch the kickoff video and game animation, reveal the playing field for the new game and hold a Q&A session about the game. Teams attending the kickoff will receive a game element and jump start their brainstorming by exploring a complete playing field.

We may offer a workshop on using the "game sensor" during the kickoff. The workshop is contingent upon me receiving certain items in advance of kickoff.

Teams attending kickoff can RSVP by sending an email to containing their team number and the number of attendees.

The location for kickoff is:
Orange County UF/IFAS Extension Education Center
6021 South Conway Road
Orlando, FL 32812

Doors open at 12:15 p.m. and kickoff begins at 1:00 p.m.

If you are not able to join us in Orlando, the details for the new game will be published on the FIRST web site at 5:00 p.m. EST on September 12th.

2. Qualification Competitions
We have room on our schedule for two more qualification competitions. Please let me know in the next few weeks if your team is interested in hosting a qualification competition. Teams hosting qualifiers receive an automatic invitation to attend the Florida State Championship.

The schedule for the 4 qualification competitions is found here:

Registration for qualification competitions will open in a few weeks.

3. Build-it/Practice Day
Send an email to if your team would like to host a Build-it/Practice day. This event is an opportunity for teams to work on their robot, receive help from experts and play the game on an official field. This is an informal event. All we need are space for a playing field and a pit area for each team.
