Unfortunately, I got this email 3 days ago:
The Chicago Offseason Event for 2019 has been canceled. We did not find enough teams interested in competing this summer, so we will not be renting an official field. However, the space for the event has already been secured so we will still prominently feature FRC teams at the Maker Faire. We still hope your team is willing and able to participate. To make the experience as meaningful as possible for you, we intend to borrow as many field elements as possible. We would love to hear from you which components are most important to your team.
Your team is currently registered as Maker Faire project 1732 Hilltopper Robotics . Your team’s support and involvement are important to both the Chicago FIRST Robotics and Maker communities, and we thank you in advance for bringing your team, enthusiasm, and Maker spirit to the event. Maker Faire celebrates the best of human imagination and creativity, and we expect that this Maker Faire will be no different.
