Teaser Release

Oh man.

I just watched the FIRST Robotics Competition 2019 season teaser for probably the tenth time, and I got goosebumps. It’s epic!

And you will get to see it soon! Tune in to FIRST TV at 7 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, September 18 for the teaser reveal show! We’ll be having some fun with special guests in the lead up to the big reveal. More information about the teaser can be found here.

And as usual, this is a great opportunity for a team party. Get your team together to watch the teaser and look for clues* to DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE!

A Free Registration
Last week, we talked about the event preferencing system opening on September 20. That’s only a week away! Is your team ‘Event Ready,’ meaning you’ve completed all the tasks necessary to submit your preferences? I hope so! Not only will this make sure you don’t miss the boat this season, but (drumroll), if you are ‘Event Ready’ by Noon Eastern Time on September 20, you will be eligible for a chance to receive a free 2019 registration!

We will randomly pick one team that is ‘Event Ready’ by that deadline to receive a FIRST HQ sponsored grant to cover their FIRST Robotics Competition registration fee for the 2019 season. That will be a pretty nice little something for one team just for doing what they should be doing anyway.

I’m so excited about this teaser!

Frank

*I am not saying there are clues in the teaser. I am not saying there are no clues in the teaser. Regardless, you can look.
All systems are go for the 2019 teaser and event registration!

Your preferred events being listed has no impact on your teams' "Event Ready" status in TIMS*.


*Or whatever we're calling it now

Wonder if PNW teams are selectable, considering their base price is ~$10k instead of the normal $5k...

I think you mean California District Events will be in VR this year. It's a trial since we know they aren't ready for them yet.

Mad about having to go to the OC Fair instead of UCI this year?


At least SoCal is only missing ONE regional. Pity the NorCal teams, who will all have to cram into SVR.

Re: FRC Blog - Teaser Release and a Free Registration!

Free registration for the 2019 season? Including all districts, regionals, and championships for which a team may qualify? Cool.
If this happens, we're signing up for 8 solid weeks' worth of events.

The First Inspires Dashboard say "EVENT READY" for our team in the bottom right area. I don't think that was there last week. I may be wrong.
