As always, the deadline is nominally Sunday at midnight Eastern.

Go!


#2

In the arena, FRC Head Referees fear nothing*.

Away from the arena, all FRC Head Referees, no matter how old, fear ONE PERSON:

MOM.

*Robots actively falling onto them excepted.


#3

“His prefrontal cortex isn’t even fully developed and you make him a head ref? No wonder FIRST is on us about the volunteer age restrictions.”


#4

Indiana decided to get a head start on helping provide head referees, for when WOW finally goes to districts.


#5

They’re smiling now… But baby is about to drop a red card.


#6

5.5.3. REFEREE Interaction
The Head REFEREE has the ultimate authority in the ARENA during the event, but may receive input from additional sources, e.g. Game
Designers, FIRST personnel, FTA, technical staff, and his or her immediate family. The Head REFEREE rulings are final unless overruled by his or her spouse. No event personnel, including the Head REFEREE, will review video, photos, artistic renderings, etc. of any MATCH, from any source, under any circumstances, with the exception of artistic renderings created by the Head REFEREE’s child, because that is really cute.


#7

Inspired by several teams, FIRST decided to make two copies of its head referees. The competition day referee is experienced, battle worn, and his age is showing. The other is pristine, used mostly for demonstrations and fundraising.


#8

You gotta start 'em young.


#9

One Yellow Shirt to rule them all, One Yellow Shirt to find them,
One Yellow Shirt to bring them all and on the game field bind them.


#10

I think we all know who the true head ref in this picture is…


#11

Logan has a mini me


#12

2 baby bees and a mom.


#13

Logan and Maggie are posing for a picture, but Benjamin’s just figured out how to improve that can grabber off to the left.


#14

That referee shirt had to be confiscated by FIRST because it could cause confusion for teams. It’s not like they couldn’t tell that he was way too big to be the actual Head Referee.


#15

As long as he’s worn a Referee shirt at events for the last 4 years…


#16

It’s all fun and games until the child forgets the safety glasses to complete the ensemble.

EDIT: Darn I missed the deadline.


#17

[NAE] You also missed a minor clause in the rules. You’re good.
