Re: Beach Blitz 2018

Check out the full Beach Blitz 2018 Lineup!



It was really tough to choose only 36 teams out of the 54 that applied. We wish we had room for everyone!

We can't wait for Oct 12!
Stay tuned for rule updates, giveaways, and shirt pre orders!

Teams who did not qualify will be notified within the week about the waitlist!

Re: Beach Blitz 2018

Teams who did not get an invite should have just received an email on waitlist positions as well as links to other local offseason events.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Speaking of, we have some more volunteer slots to fill, make sure to sign up with the link on the OP!

Re: Beach Blitz 2018

Beach Blitz 2018 Rule Updates

(They are the same as Chezy Champs except with 3 team alliances).

Inspection
There will be no robot inspections conducted, and teams are allowed an extra five (5) pounds weight for repairs and minor modifications. Event organizers may conduct ad-hoc inspections at any time; violations identified must be corrected before the robot can participate in subsequent matches, and teams may be retroactively disqualified from past matches for egregious violations that resulted in a competitive advantage.

Gameplay (changes to existing rules underlined)
In general, minor violations of game rules that, in the best judgement of the REFEREES, meet ALL of the below conditions, will not be penalized:
Are accidental
Do not pose a safety hazard
Do not change the difficulty of the game for either alliance

G09. Launching POWER CUBES is mostly okay. Robots may launch power cubes without restriction, so long as doing so would not also violate S01, G20, G21, G24, or G25.

G22. One POWER CUBE per ROBOT. ROBOTS may not control more than one (1) POWER CUBE at a time, except when breaking the plane of their own EXCHANGE ZONE.

G25. PLATES are moved by POWER CUBES, not ROBOTS. Except via the weight of placed POWER CUBES, ROBOTS may not directly or transitively cause or prevent the movement of PLATES to their ALLIANCE's advantage. Movement, or prevention of movement, of PLATES because of momentary ROBOT action resulting in minimal PLATE displacement is not a violation of this rule. A ROBOT forced to affect the position of a PLATE because of contact by an opponent ROBOT either directly or transitively through a POWER CUBE or other ROBOT (e.g. a ROBOT wedged underneath the SCALE by the opposing ALLIANCE either intentionally or accidentally) is not a violation of this rule.

A04. Stay out of your opponent’s side of the FIELD. During AUTO, no part of a ROBOT’S BUMPERS may pass from the NULL TERRITORY to the opponent’s side of the FIELD.
Violation: FOUL. If contact is made with an opponent ROBOT in their side of the FIELD (either direct contact or transitive contact through a POWER CUBE), TECH FOUL and YELLOW CARD. If the contact prevents the opponent ALLIANCE from achieving the AUTO QUEST, the associated Ranking Point will be granted automatically.

Alliance Selection
Beach Blitz will have 3 team playoff alliances. All rules governing their selection and operation will be identical to those for Championship playoff alliances in section 10.11.1 in the official manual.

Student Tours
In our feedback over the last 2 years we have had a request to add a "tour" feature so new FRC students have the opportunity to learn about FRC at competition from other teams.

Tours start at about 9am when all the volunteer training and preparations are complete. Each tour is estimated to be approx. 25-35 minutes.
More information will be in team packets (students can still participate in tours, even if your team is not competing)

Tours include:
A full explanation of the game
Competition 101
Chance to speak to teams 1 on 1
Explanation on workshops and how to choose which to go to
Progression of Programs
Q & A with FRC Alum
and more!
