3309,3476, and 4276 are very excited to be co-hosting this event!
We’ll likely attend. Can I put in a request for the event organizers to be super cool and start this event a little later than the early times that are typical of FIRST events? Like, can we do doors open at 9 instead of 8?
We’ve left this as ‘TBD’ for now since it’s our first time running the event and our financials will depend in large part on how many teams can attend. We expect to be in line with other events in SoCal, with accommodations for teams who need assistance and can also provide volunteer support.
