This season the North Texas Region will be holding an official Kickoff and Workshop event on September 9th from 9:30am to 12:30pm at Diamond Hill-Jarvis High School in Fort Worth.  The purpose of the kickoff is meet other teams and provide an overview of the FTC 2017-2018 “Relic Recovery” season for North Texas.  The kickoff event is free of charge, but because space for the event may be limited, we’re asking coaches/teams to pre-register for the event .

At 11:00 CDT (12:00 EDT) we will watch the official game reveal video and unveil a full, official field setup complete with game elements. This will give teams an opportunity to see, feel, and touch the game to get a head start on the season. After the field reveal we will then provide an review of the rules in Game Manual Part II and answer any initial questions teams have about the upcoming challenge and how to get started.

Location and Parking: The kickoff will be held in the gymnasium of Diamond Hill-Jarvis High School in Fort Worth.  Map and directions are below.
