This email has the event maps attached and covers the list below for Bordie Recharge.
- roboRIO updates
- COVID protocols
roboRIO updates: Prior to arriving we highly recommend that you update your roboRIO and driver station with 2021 software versions so you can connect to the field. Those versions are roboRIO firmware/image version 2021_f and Driver Station revision 21.0 or newer. If you need assistance with this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Load-in: Doors open for load-in at 7:00 am. The pits and field are on the second floor so you may choose to push your pit up a long wheelchair accessible slope or use the freight elevator. If you choose to go up the slope, please follow the attached map for lining up to unload your pit. If you want to use the freight elevator you must let us know in advance and I will give you separate instructions. Please bring only your pit crew at 7am if possible. If you are local and want to bring your pit over Friday night after 7:30 pm please email email@example.com to arrange it. We ask that you wait until Saturday AM to set it up though.
Parking: There are no pull-through parking spaces so we are asking that you park trailers and busses in the northwest staff parking lot along 140th Ave. You may leave your trailer overnight in the parking lot. Cars can park in the south student parking lot.
Check-in: Please send 1-2 people to the check-in desk (see map) where we will give you the wristbands for your team. Please remember that your team number limit includes student AND mentors. At this point we don’t have extra wristbands. Wristbands will be checked when you enter the gym, we ask you to keep them visible for our volunteers.
COVID protocols: All guests are asked to scan our attendance QR code upon entry. We will have a Google Form and a Microsoft form for BSD (Bellevue School District) students. Masks are required at all times except in designated eating areas and only while eating.
Guests: No guests are allowed because BSD has given us a strict limit on attendance.
Food/Lunch: We will have a concessions table with snacks and bottled drinks for sale (nothing for lunch). No food is allowed in the gym. Lunch tables are available with limited seating. There are multiple covered outdoor areas as well for eating. If you choose to move tables please return them to the original location after use. There is a Starbucks, Little Caesar’s, a great taco truck, Wingstop as well as Dominos delivery and a Subway close by. Check out the options on Google Maps.
Doors: Please observe signs for entering the pits and gym. There will be separate doors for people without robots and people pushing robots. (see map)
Payment: Let Ms. Herzog (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you need an invoice. You can send checks to Sammamish High School Robotics, 100 140th Ave. SE Bellevue, WA 98005. It is also okay to bring a check to the event.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Hi all! I wanted to chime in with a thanks for all those who offered help. Our volunteer opportunities are currently full for those not already attending with their team.
Check-in: We will have different wristbands each day, they’ll be at check-in for you to grab and take to your team. If you can have pit crew and bot crew only until 9:00 that would be great. If you’re all travelling together, no problem. Later arrivals can get their wristband from their team’s pit.
Flags: We would love to have you bring your flags to wave on the field. We welcome mascot costumes too, should you wish to wear one.
Robot Inspections: We will have one of our mechanical mentors performing short safety inspections for robots that have not competed before. Please let our pit admin, Julian, know when you come in to set up if your bot has competed or been inspected before. We ask that all bots do their best to comply with all robot construction guidelines as always.
I’m so excited to see all of you!! Of course, I’m usually excited about something but still.
