FLL 2016 Scrimmage at Grand Saline Middle School

2016-11-19 @ 9:30am - 3:00pm

Registration for this event is now FULL, but you can sign up for a waitlist spot at http://gsmsmockqualifier.eventzilla.net/web/event?eventid=2138872925 .

This is a FLL robot game mock qualifier/scrimmage hosted by Grand Saline Middle School FLL Robot teams. Rookie teams are highly encouraged to sign up.  This event will be conducted like an actual qualifier.  The only differences will be a slightly smaller field of teams, no judging call backs, and no awards.  All teams will receive game scores, actual judging rubrics for presentations, and additional constructive judge feedback.  This event is a first of its kind in our region and an excellent way to prepare or tune-up for the actual qualifiers.  The event will be held at our middle school.  The physical address is 400 Stadium Drive in Grand Saline, TX 75140.  We are easy to access directly from US Highway 80 E or IH 20 E and then North on State Highways 17 or 19 to US 80.  Travel time varies but will average around one hour to one and a half hours from the central part of the Dallas/Ft.Worth metroplex.  Currently the limit is twenty teams (plus nine from GSMS), but might be expanded depending on need and response.  A waitlist will be available.  GSMS will try their best to service as many interested teams as possible.

What to Bring

Two practice tables will be set up in the pit area, but no mission models will be provided.  Teams can bring their own mat and models to use with the tables or bring your own practice table as well.   Charging stations will be setup within the pit area to charge your robots and laptops.


A full service concession stand with hot foods will be available for teams who want to eat lunch on site.  A menu of options and prices will be emailed a few days before.  Stand will be cash only, but I will put together some pre-pay meal options that can be preordered/payed by school check. A few local restaurants options are available off site.
