2003 Off Season Competitions - a list of what, when and where

There are many off-season competitions happening out there, from the new Beantown Blitz in the east to Cal Games in the west. I’m just a simple guy from Indiana, and I have a hard time tracking down when and where all of these competitions are taking place.

So… please respond and post the details of your post season competition.

I’ll start:

Hello all,

We’re planning to host a friendly competition in West Springfield, MA. It is tentatively scheduled for the 24th of May, or Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. We’re trying to work out all the many details as I post this. We plan to have full food service available and free spectator admission. Schools from the surrounding area, politicians, and businesses will be invited. Media presence has already been confirmed. Are there any teams interested in attending? Buzz and Rosie Robotics are already signed up. Please e-mail me at [email protected] if you would like to attend the event.

** Last year we had 24 teams, a rock station, a charity drive, x-box give away and spontaneous dancing.

Email me if interested!**

Argh. You beat me to it. Yes, this is still in the first stages of planning, but it’s going to be great. UHS, St. Mike’s and Woburn are co-hosting this event, and we’re actually going to finalize some things tomorrow. It’s short notice, but if anyone’s interested in info or lending a hand, talk to me soon!

Also, to give us an idea of who’s going to sign up, please tell us at the TIRC post in the Canadian Regional Forums.**

**REMINDER: ** List events in this thread only.
All other discussion should take place in other threads.

Thanks.

Competition in Central Oregon, likely happening in September sometime. Still in planning stages.
