NTX Tournament of Robots

The NTX Off-Season Planning Committee (including but not limited to FRC 5431, FRC 6171, FRC 3005, FRC 3310, FRC 1296 and FRC 5417) is pleased to announce a new off-season event in the Dallas Area. The North Texas Tournament of Robots will be October 7th and 8th in Plano.

Registration for the event is $250 and can be submitted by check to:

Titan Robotics Booster Club
1701 Alma Drive
Plano, Texas 75075

or via Paypal on https://www.ntxrobotics.com/

We will be using standard STEAMWORKS rules with the following exceptions:

Rule Change #1: Change S07 Violation to read: For S07C: first offense above the deck of the airship results in a warning. For repeated S07C violations, S07C violations below the deck of the airship, and any S07A,B,D violation: YELLOW CARD.

Discussion on Rule Change #1: As we expect teams may use inexperienced pilots, this amounts to a warning on the first S07C violation rather than an immediate yellow card. We of course need to provide this warning, so multiple S07C violations in the match where the first violation occurs will not result in a yellow card. (Thank you, TRR!)

Rule Change #2: No reserve gear will be provided in the airship.

Discussion on Rule Change #2: After a full season of FIRST Steamworks, we expect teams to be able to coordinate well enough to not need the reserve gear. (Thank you, TRR!)

Rule Change #3: The top 8 teams are not allowed to select each other. The selection sequence will be serpentine, 1-8, 8-1, and 8-1. (Thank you, Robot Remix)

Re: NTX Tournament of Robots

Thanks to the entire group who worked to put this together! We've been in need of a nearby offseason event and this one looks like it will exactly fit our schedule. Up until now, the nearest has usually been 6+ hours away and tricky scheduling for us. I don't think we'll even need to miss school for this one despite it being a two-day event. Awesome.

Hopefully we can get an Oklahoma offseason going in a couple of years, but we're extremely grateful to our neighboring states for the opportunities they provide to play in FRC.

A summer competition in OKC would be on my radar (only 4.5 hours travel). There aren't many many Though I understand that having a fall competition is nice for the region (new students, mentors training, etc) and I like Kansas City's CTTD being in late October.
