2009 FTC Regionals

Hi, Some people at my school are interested in starting a FTC team for next years season, the only problem is there doesn’t seem to be any regionals in Minnesota, is anyone planning or know of anyone planning on hosting one for next year?

Thanks Joe

The FIRST Tech Challenge Championship Tournaments are typically not announced until after all the Affiliate Partner agreements are signed. This season’s contracts have not run out yet. I’m not sure you will see any formal announcements for a while, but if you are curious about your area, you can contact FIRST at ftcteams@usfirst.org.

It won’t help you, Joey, but there’s about a 99.99% chance that we will be holding the third annual Washington FTC regional next season.

How close are you to Eagan?

I’m in the exact same boat, expect I’m in Michigan. What people told me is the same as what’s above; we won’t know until september-ish.

I believe there may be plans in the works for an MN FTC event, but I can’t remember where I read/heard this. I will PM you the email of the Regional Coordinator for the FRC regional in Minneapolis. If an FTC event is in the works he probably knows about it and who to talk to in order to learn more.
