FIRST EMAIL/FIRST HQ Closed 12/25/Don’t forget to take inventory of your KoP after Kickoff/Surrogate Kit Pickup Reminder

Greetings Teams:

FIRST HQ Closed 12/25: FIRST Headquarters will close at 3:00 pm ET on Monday, 12/24/12 in recognition of the Christmas holiday. Our regular business hours will resume Wednesday, 12/26/12 at 8:30 am ET.

Don’t forget to take inventory of your Kit of Parts (KoP) after Kickoff: After receiving and checking all items in your Kit of Parts (KoP), should you determine you are missing a part(s), or need replacement part(s) you must use the FIRST “Replacement Parts Request” system to order replacements. Find more details about this process here: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/kit-of-parts-replacement-parts-process.

IMPORTANT: This is a time limited, one-time only opportunity to submit your Replacement Parts Request. We must receive your Replacement Parts Request by 12 pm (noon) ET on Sunday, 1/13/13.

Surrogate Kit Pickup Reminder: If a team is unable to pick up its KoP at the Local Kickoff selected, an alternate, or “Surrogate” team may be designated to do so. The team must provide FIRST with an authorized Surrogate Kit Pickup letter, signed by the main or alternate contact, on school or sponsor letterhead that follows this template: http://tinyurl.com/cy6kkfr.

All Surrogate Kit Pickup letters must be received at FIRST no later than 5:00 pm ET on 12/31/12.

The surrogate letter should be sent or faxed to:

Attn: FRC Team Support/Operations
200 Bedford Street
