- Hello all,
As the school year is quickly approaching, I hope everyone has
been enjoying the summer so far.
Thank you to all the team leaders who attended the FIRST Team
Forum on August 1st, it was a very productive meeting. FIRST found the
input/feedback to be very useful and I am sure we will see that some
changes in the 2002 season were directly influenced by those of you at the
Forum. Thank you again.
We are currently finalizing logistics and dates for the 2002
season, which should be confirmed and posted on the FIRST web site around
Labor Day. Team Registration begins on September 17th. All teams should
start to regularly monitor the FIRST web site for information regarding the
kickoff, regional dates, team registration, possible grants, regional cap
sizes, hotel info, and more.
Attached is a flyer for the 2nd Annual WRRF California Robot Games
being held on October 6th in San Jose (pdf format). It will be a 24 team
event. A more detailed description of the skill events will be sent out in
a few weeks. If you have any questions or need any additional information
about the October 6th event, please let me know.
Have a great week and enjoy the rest of the summer.
