FTC scrimmage at Greenhill School
2015-12-11 @ 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Greenhill School is hosting a scrimmage from 6:00pm-9:00pm on December 11th at Greenhill School in Addison.
Some of the specific details are still being worked out, but we want to let teams know about the scrimmage event so they can put it on their calendar and start making arrangements to join us. Space will be limited to approximately 8-10 teams.
Registration: If you’re interested in attending, please send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Please include your team number, team name, and the number of people you will be bringing. We have room for only 8-10 teams, so we will confirm your attendance in a separate email shortly thereafter.
The primary purpose of the scrimmage is to help teams better prepare for competition events later in the season. In particular, this is a chance for teams to experience the robot inspection and match setup processes prior to attending their first (and possibly only) competitive event.
We will definitely be running matches at the event, with referees. Since it’s hard to know which teams will have working robots (and when they’ll be available), we may generate match schedules “on the fly” as teams’ robots become available.
Programming assistance and mentoring will be available from other teams and coaches at the event. Veteran teams can view this as an outreach opportunity to help other teams get to operational status. Remember, at competition alliances are randomly generated, and you don’t want to find yourself paired with an inoperable or unreliable partner.
Part of the value of the scrimmage is that teams can also see the many ideas and approaches that others are developing to solve this year’s game challenge. In previous years the scrimmage events have often provided the small boost team’s need to go from a barely workable design to a well-functioning one.
