Your regional tournament is just around the corner! We anticipate an exciting and educational day full of awesome teamwork and excellent robot competition. We want you and your team to have a great experience so please review the following information carefully. We encourage you to share this information with your team, mentors and parents.

 

To review information about your regional tournament, please visit the Botball homepage at www.botball.org. Select your region's name from the "Find Your Regional Info" dropbox at the top, center of the front page. Select "tournament" from your regional page and review all the details.

 

For additional information about the tournament, check out the previous tournament reminder here.

 

The top five things to remember in preparation for the tournament are:

 

1. Be sure to prepare your onsite presentation and bring your materials with you to the tournament. Not sure what the onsite presentation is? Visit your team's homebase under "Botball Tools".

 

2. Review the Botball FAQ located on your team's homebase. You will find a wealth of helpful information here in the form of questions asked by other teams and then answered by Botball officials. Reviewing the FAQ will help your team be better prepared for the tournament.

 

3. As you all know, many teams will be bringing sophisticated color tracking robots to the tournament. Team members who are bringing robots to the table MUST be wearing the official tournament t-shirt (distributed at registration) or another neutral colored shirt without brightly colored graphics or lettering (black, grey, or white).

 

4. Bring your laptop computer, robots and a back up of your code (on a flashdrive, CD, etc). Bring a power strip and an extension cord. We will not have them to loan at the tournament.

 

5. Bring lunch money or a sack lunch. Be prepared for a quick lunch break as the tournament moves between seeding rounds in the morning and double elimination rounds in the afternoon.
