I doubt FIRST is going to pull anything, but the mc’s just might. Last year at the West Michigan Regional we were told that all the teams that had attended since the begining would get a pass into the finals, which of course fooled some people.
1293 has been competing on April Fools’ Day since its inception. Kills any chance of me being able to pull off any sort of prank on anyone…and nothing particularly shocking has happened to me that day, either.
Well “usually” when it comes to the competition FIRST is all business so the message gets across of how serious they are about the whole thing. If they messed around and joked about the rules and such there would be confusion.
They usually let the teams provide the fun part and they just follow the beat.
