Countdown on Vex Robotics?

With school starting up, we were going online to get information on the Vex competitions this year. Looks like most of the stuff is still for last season, but there is a big countdown display at the top of the screen. I figure it is for the new season, registration, the game or something, but it does not seem to say. Does anyone know for sure what the countdown is for?

The latest from IFI to the VRC “regional” tournament organizers is that the new VRC game will be announced Tuesday at noon. If that countdown clock isn’t exactly for that announcement - it is certainly close enough for government work. :wink:

Tuesday at noon! - See you online.


 Could the stepped-shape of the countdown timer be some form of game clue?  OOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhh..... :cool: 

 Or did AT&T Wireless ("More Bars.....") sign some form of promotional agreement with IFI?  :D
