Teams 7172 Technical Difficulties and the Marcus Robotics Institute will be holding a Kickoff and Workshop event on September 18th from 9:30am to 12:30pm at Marcus High School in Flower Mound.  The purpose of the kickoff is meet other teams and provide an overview of the FTC 2021-2022 “Freight Frenzy” season for North Texas.  The kickoff event is free of charge, but we ask teams and attendees to pre-register for the event so we can make appropriate space arrangements and notify people of potential changes to the event.

Overview: Doors will open at 9:15am.  The kickoff will begin at 9:30am with a review and overview of the upcoming FTC season, including tournament structure, league play, and robot tips. 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: TBD.  Maps and directions to follow.

Agenda/Topics:  Qualifying tournament details; common robot building systems; Android and REV Robotics control platform overview; updates, upgrades, and changes from previous seasons; resources for new teams; grants; game reveal; review of game scoring and rules; practice fields and scrimmages; questions and answers.

Again, please pre-register for the event so we can keep track of space requirements.
