Connecticut State Championship May 12

Welcome Home from Detroit, fellow Connecticutians (is that a word? It is now)

And those nutmeggers watching on Twitch as I was, welcome you also to the 2018 CIAC Connecticut State Robotics Championship. Click below to sign up.

https://www.casciac.org/scripts/regi...id=ROBOTICS161

I am pleased to have the opportunity to bring a competition back to Fitch High School in Groton. The competition is less than 2 weeks away, and that is the reason your robot got priority shipping from Detroit!

We look forward to making this competition fun for everyone. We will be providing lunch foods for very reasonable rates, including pizza from a rolling wood-fire pizza oven. We ask that teams not bring their own food as this is an important fundraiser for our team (but let's be honest--we're not checking bags!).

Look here for updates and information on where to park (where NOT to park will be the issue) and other things.

Since load-in is Friday, May 11, there may be some of you needing a hotel space or two. Look for hotels in Mystic, and you will find plenty of the usual.

If you are looking for anything else local, recommendations, etc, ask here.

Re: Connecticut State Championship May 12

I should mention to CT Teams attending, Friday night load-in is NOT required, but hopefully as many teams as possible can bring their robots in on Friday.

We hope to have pit set-up begin at 5. We hope to have pits wired by then. All batteries should be charging by the end of the day though. Stay tuned for updates.

Groton Food and Lodging
For those arriving in Groton this weekend, see the "Guest Map" file to see the locations of all significant Coffee and Food choices, plus the locations of the "Usual Hotels" and their distance from Fitch High School.

If you need dinner on your way out, or if you are arriving Friday night, we have a few restaurants where an entire team can sit down (Steak Loft, Chester's BBQ, Mystic Pizza--reservations will be very necessary) and some others that can handle a large take-out order (Paul's Pasta, Bridge Market, Pizzetta, plus others).

Parking at CT Robotics State Championship, 2018

Visiting teams, see the attached document for a pictorial guide to the appropriate locations for all traffic, including:

Robot & Pit drop off
Bus loop and student drop off
Bus and Trailer Parking
General Parking
Overflow parking

The short story summation:
Robot and Pit drop off, go left at the circle
Everything else, go right at the circle
Overflow is NEXT to the police station (not AT the police station though)

Re: Connecticut State Championship May 12

The Pit layout for Connecticut State Robotics Championship will remain a secret until Friday night! One thing for certain however is that we will have 9' x 9' (nominal) pits.

If there are more than 37 teams, then a couple of inches will need to be shaved off of one dimension of each pit (either depth, or width--everyone may keep the 10 foot height!).

In short, teams may want to minimize their big pit displays.

Going to three Final Matches is always a joy.

Great job by the finalists 230, 177 and 178.

Watching the strategy in the final match where 3182 played excellent defense, denying 230 and 177 of the few power cubes remaining while the scale overflowed was what makes PowerUp a strategic game.
