just a reminder… sign up for one of the only southeast Bridge Battle

The interesting thing about this particular tournament is that it will be structured just like our off season event from last year, “Hangin-A-round some more”.

This tournament aims to encourage veteran teams to introduce competitive robotics to rookie teams. They can be civic groups like Girl/Boy Scouts, middle schoolers, home schoolers or even your across town High School rivals. The point is, most of us veterans have several VEX kits at their disposal. Enough to build a couple of B.B. robots for this competition probably. Go ahead and lend them some parts, help them build a robot, and bring them out with you to compete. Teams that do this will have their registration fee cut in half. Basically you get a two for one deal where the veteran and rookie team can compete for a total fee of $50. Bring out two rookie teams and their robots to compete and all three of you can compete for FREE!

Also for those of you who just long for a day full of competition, we will have just that. No prolonged inspection, no interviews, no engineering journal, just match after match of competition. There will be a couple of practice matches in the morning to get you warmed up, and then real competition begins.

Tournament play will be similar to traditional FTC tournament style play with the exception that with awards given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers. The two losing teams from the semi-finals will compete to determine 3rd place. Awards will be given for the team that brings the most rookie teams to compete as well as the best rookie team.
