Pit size

Does anyone know if we have the full 10'x10' for pits or if the size is reduced to around 8'x8'?

Re: Pit size

Re: Pit size

There is easily enough room for 10 x 10 pits in St Louis, and I've never been to a championship with pits smaller than that.

Re: Pit size

For example, a tornado the week before Championship might make half the convention center unavailable.

Barring any disasters (natural or otherwise...) there should be enough room for all teams to have a 10x10x10 pit. There was enough room for the 352 teams with 10x10x10 pits, 2 competition fields, and accompanying stands (which I might add weren't sufficient. Not to mention the Jr. FLL, FLL, and FTC pits, or the 2 full practice fields, inspection station, sponsor booths, and scholarship row.

Since all 4 competition fields are going to be in the dome this year, the extra 48 teams (4800 square feet of floor space) should be able to fit.

Re: Pit size

No sign of a pit map for this year? I was trying to remember how buried (or not) it was last year. Maybe my brain fog factor has expanded after wading through 1114's competition data sheet, so I cannot see the forest for the trees.

Re: Pit size

Guys,
Any speculation you have on pit size will be rendered false when you see the pit layout. Remember that St. Louis is nowhere near the layout of Atlanta where FTC and FLL pits were not included in FRC, Hall of Fame was in the big space we all called Lobby, and colleges and vendors also had space elsewhere. We might not have the two playing fields this year but we will have other things occupying the space including another 30-50 teams (or more, yikes!)

Re: Pit size

With the amount of teams this year I would definitely make sure you can go down to 8x8. Our pit has extensions that we can put in so it can go from 8x8 up to a little under 10 x 10. I'm more concerned about space in the aisle. Hopefully it won't get too crowded there.

We're like tornado magnets.
