Hello Team 4293!
Big news this week, the national FRC Kickoff, and therefore the build season, is now only a few weeks away! Please read the full post, as we've got important kickoff information, directions, and super important information about meetings during the build season.
This year, we've organized an event at the Highlands Ranch Library on Saturday, January 4, to save you all a drive downtown. We'll be meeting at 9:15 am at the Highlands Ranch Library (directions below) in the Shea A Community Room which is on the first floor, to the left, as you come in the front doors. Please bring a few dollars for lunch as the meeting will run until 2 pm. Please also bring a laptop if you have it, and once we're given the unlock code during kickoff you can download the rules.
We're going to use this meeting to not only see kickoff, but to also do some brainstorming for this year's game. Be ready to come up with creative ideas for this year!
Speaking of this year's game, every year FIRST releases a clue as to the game's nature. This year's clue is especially cryptic, saying only:
