Central New York Regional

Hello Everyone,

First off I would like to say on behalf of everyone at Suny Poly and the planning committee we are beyond excited for the Inaugural Central New York Regional. We are only 73 days away!!

We will be welcoming 40 teams from six states and two coming internationally.
I am currently working on getting everything set up for the webpage, but I wanted to have something available for teams looking for information. I will continue updating the page as we get more information, as well as adding some more formatting and design, but the first step is getting the important information out there.

If anyone has any recommendations for the site feel free to comment, as there may be things I missed already.
The event schedule and pit map are being finalized, when we have it available I will let everyone know. We also are looking to keep mentors updated as we get closer to the event. We are working on lunch orders as well as other event necessities, but are welcoming input from teams as well.

Question Re: Central New York Regional

Utilitarian question about the competition and venue:

What's the food situation like at the venue itself? Will lunch be available there?

Some venues off a pre-order "box lunch" arrangement, and I didn't see anything about there on the website. Is that happening here?

How far away are the nearest food places, and do you expect them to be flooded with crazy waits due to the competition?


Are there any further details that will be posted or mailed to teams (load-in procedure and expectations, venue specifics, maps, etc?).

Hello,
Firstly for more information about food, we have a dining options tab on our events page.Here

We have two dining options on campus, one being a food court style and the other being the buffet style. They are both within a 2-minute walk at most. Being within eyeshot of the Field House. There will also be a concession stand in the field house with some snacks available. (I believe bottles of water, chips, quick items but I can double check.)

We are working on finalizing all the finer points of load in, and other logistics. I will see when the next email will be going out.

Also located on our site, under resources I included some local places of importance, including a few places to eat locally, hotels, and things to do. Plus the big one, sometimes I forget to scout ahead for at events, where hardware stores and supply stores are.

Re: Central New York Regional

Code Red is beyond excited for this event. Its my first time ever attending a week one event and I'm so hyped I decided to volunteer to set up as well! Can't wait to meet all the teams, especially the international teams! Good luck to everyone, I'm sure it'll be a fantastic event, and from looking at the team list, a pretty competitive event as well.

Re: Central New York Regional

Hi, out of curiosity, what is the practice field going to look like? I'm not expecting a full field a la champs, but something large enough for teams to test autos on would be great.

Re: Central New York Regional

Hello,
We actually have an email going out shortly to all the coaches to answer a few of the common questions we got so I will answer some of them here.

We will have a half field, but I am told it will not be wooden parts. It will feature field quality parts.

For the food situation, we will not have pre-order meals. We have both dining options open on campus. One is grab and g(Food court style) the other is buffet style. The social will be Saturday night at the Campus Center (buffet style) and we are looking into having the gym opened up so people can play Basketball or other activities. There are some limited spaces if teams want to have a scouting meeting or anything.

During the event, SUNY Poly will have an information booth set up from admissions, with a few admissions counselors available to answer questions. They will also be offering tours, with the exact schedule of when coming soon. I will let everyone know what hours and increments the tours will be available.

We will also be having a FIRST Expo on Sunday, which will be in the Student Center. The Junior FLL teams will be having their presentations, and some FLL and FTC teams will be showing off their robots as well.

We will have the live stream running through the official FIRST twitch channel.
After the event, I will personally be uploading all the match footage to either our team's channel or the SUNY Poly FIRST channel( still to be determined). I will also be hopefully making a highlight video, as well as having our 360-degree cameras recording or taking photos during the event to have a cool insight into the competition.

Don't forget to check out our regional webpage at www.sunypoly.edu/cnyregional for more information. There is a tab for the team social, as well as a link to resources which includes important places in the area, like dinning and supply stores.

Everyone here at SUNY Poly is excited to host this week 1 event, and we will have a few more updates soon to answer any more questions. Feel free to let me know of any questions or concerns.

Re: Central New York Regional

Hey Dom & Crew- is there any on-site wifi we could hook into for scouting purposes? Additionally, how is the cell service in the arena (also for scouting stuff)?

I will double check the answer on the WiFi question.
In the Field house you should be able to get a have excellent cell service depending on the provider.

Not from Utica, but a quick Google search suggests rigatoni.
