For the 6th year in a row, Team 470 will host an exciting FIRST Demo at the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival. We have a huge tent in which we set up a partial playing field. We invite any and all area teams to come for a morning, afternoon or evening, bring their robot and PR display and take part in demo matches based on this year’s game.
Competition Name (It’s really a Demo): Ypsilanti Heritage Festival
When is it: Friday August 19 - Sunday, August 21, 2005
Where is it: Corner of Cross & River Streets, Depot Town, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48198
Team Capactity: Up to 14 teams over the course of the weekend, in 3 or 4 hour shifts, very flexible. We hope to have two guest teams for each time period. If you want to stay longer, that can be arranged. Some teams are already planning on coming, so sign up soon!
Additional information: We have to pay for the tent, so we are asking each team to chip in $65. You will get table space for your PR display, a little pit space, and a great opportunity to show off your robot and the ideals of FIRST to enthusiastic crowds of all ages. We are trying to arrange low cost or free food for students.
A suggestion: if you haven’t already done so, please add your off-season competitions to the CD calendar (there’s one specifically for off-seasons). That will help teams who are looking at the pre-season months coming up.
