I was literally planning on doing this when I got home from Bethesda today. Thanks for doing it!

Might I suggest you make it a wiki so that people can make changes and so that you can edit outside of the normal time limit?

It does appear to be a wiki

Must be because I’m on mobile, wiki icon isn’t showing. Thanks!

Currently unofficial (not from the RPC), but https://alert.rpi.edu/ seems to indicate RPI is cancelling all large public events, which I presume would include the NY Tech Valley Regional (week 3).

PLEASE WAIT FOR NOTIFICATION FROM THE RPC BEFORE CANCELLING ANY PLANS

Yesterday we asked the regional and got an email saying that they will keep the event as scheduled. Today we got another one (from FIRST) saying the same.

How often will this chart be updated?

Since it is a wiki and anyone can update it, I imagine it will be pretty close to real time.

It seems like all the NY State events hosted by a college are being cancelled. What do you think this means for HVR and NYC?

I probably missed this somewhere but would the drive team rules be flexed so seniors this year who will be attending college next year still be allowed to drive if the event so happens to be after the student’s enrollment in college?

HVR and SBIPLI (1 & 2) are held at universities. NYC is held at a track and field center.

Disclaimer: I’m on the planning committee for NYC. We are monitoring this situation like everyone else is.

This is going to be a very long weekend waiting for a blog post from FIRST.
