Beach Blitz 2017

Our committee is excited to announce our final team list! We had a hard time deciding teams, you guys made it tough on us!

36 teams were selected in our 49 team applicant pool. We have a fantastic line up of teams that are sure to make our event competitive.

As always, Beach Blitz's focus is on the team experience and hope you all will enjoy competing in our 2017 event.



Event Details:
When: Oct 6-8th 2017 (Oct 6 will be a load in day and practice matches if time allows)
Where: Marina High School, Huntington Beach, CA


Merchandise and Food

This year we will be selling shirts + hats. We will be sending more information on pre orders and design near the end of summer. Keep your eye out for them! We will also soon make food preorders and our options sent out in our final team packet in September along with workshop details

Rule Updates

We will be playing a slightly modified version of FIRST Steamworks. Exact rule changes will be posted later in the summer. We do not plan on changing the point values of any scoring tasks and do not plan to change the number of pre-populated gears on the airship. Beach Blitz will most likely utilize the Chezy Champ 2017 updates as they become available.


More details about the event are available at beachblitz.ocra.io (where you can also sign up to volunteer!)

We also have some cool tricks and updates up our sleeve for this years event, can't wait to show you all

Re: Beach Blitz 2017

Should each team do the survey or each person on each team?

Re: Beach Blitz 2017

Just submitted the form! I had such a great time at Saikran and Shane's workshops last year, and heard only amazing things about all of the other ones. I'm excited to see some more that I missed last year, as well as any new ones the Beach Blitz team puts together!!

Hi Pauline--

Would you keep us informed about the need for volunteers to help with making Beach Blitz a success?

Of course, we are in need of more judges (any age) and various runners (merch, safety glasses, food) ect!

Can I be a food runner? I was Saikiran's understudy last year when we went to get In N Out for everyone but this year I think I'm ready to do it on my own.

Bro I specifically remember you being one of like the three people who said "nah fam, I'm good" when we asked around. But I feel bad you missed out last year, so here's what I'll do - this time around when we go collecting orders, I'll cover yours. Sound good?
