The rules, for the newbies.

And the picture:

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

Go!

The true source of microphone feedback revealed: the mascot behind the announcer

“Seeing as our usual announcer appears to have suddenly become a marble statue, with personality to match, I’m afraid you’re stuck with me. If you can’t handle a monotone, run away now.”

Near disaster was averted as Bob the mascot arrived with the script, saving the announcer from public humiliation and saving the audience from bad block puns.

As demonstrated by this picture, safety is essential. Even when behind a computer, safety glasses are not optional. Who knows? An laptop or microphone may blow up, and heaven forbid your eyes are injured. Remember kids. Stay safe.

I’ve heard people say that

Does it really take 3 people watching to make sure the announcer says the team numbers and names correctly?

The announcers are only present as a distraction from the real focus of this photo: the robotic-looking cafeteria tables that are prepared to walk toward the field

Announcer: “Pay no attention to my partner on my left. He doesn’t get much sun so he is a little pale.”

He’s totally ignoring the vastly more intriguing some form of playground game happening behind him.

Will the real Cheesy Poofs please stand up.

Guy in red: “And remeber folk’s, as a part of our multicultural initiative here at FIRST, we have several Greek Gods attending our event today, including Medusa. This is just a friendly reminder to avoid eye contact at all costs or you’ll end up like our old announcer, Bill. Go robots!”

I’m not sure what that blue robot is doing, but I just can’t look away.

Phew, we survived FTC Kickoff. Let’s judge!
