  • Bring everyone in your family to cheer, your camcorders, cameras, and lots of tape, film
    and batteries.

  • No power will be available anywhere in the building for ANY purpose, so make sure ALL batteries are FULLY charged.

Wow, I’m glad to see you really were listening (monitoring the site) and you pretty much nailed it. One major item - please have the pre-inspection sheets filled out when you arrive and it will make inspection alot easier. Due to the arrival of each team being pretty much up to them, we usually do the inspection on a 1st come 1st served basis. Once inside the building and the robot set up and ready for inspection, see the inspectors at the inspection station (that will be obvious as its right in the pit area) and they will be glad to assist you. We encourage each team to get the inspection process behind you asap, as this will allow the inspectors to concentrate on the few that are struggling with last second revisions to get inspected in time for their 1st match. Thankyou in advance to everyone participating in the CDI and I wish you the best of Luck, but most of all relax and enjoy the experience!

There are three steps to the inspection process.

  1. Have your machine weighed ( w/battery )
  2. Have your machine sized.
  3. Go to your pit a wait for the inspector to show up. We will come to you. This allows you to be doing finishing touches.


You MUST have the Pre-Inspection form completed. This speeds up the inspection process.

Thanks, Mike and Mike!

Can you please upload a higher resolution flyer? The one you have there is a thumbnail, that doesn’t really enlarge well.

> but most of all relax and enjoy the experience!

Well, as soon we can get our robot running, we’ll try! <grin> Physics has dinked with us yet again during payload final integration, and we’re going to have to pull another late one tonight to try to fix it.
