FIRST EMAIL/Important Championship Information

Greetings Championship Teams:

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in St. Louis soon! We will be emailing you each Monday from here on out with important updates and reminders regarding the Championship (CMP) event.

Firstly, please visit the CMP Planning section of our website for important information http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/championship-event. We update this page regularly so check back periodically for new posts.

*Available Now! *2012 A-Z Team Guide for the FIRST CMP, Shipping & Drayage Information, CMP Eligibility Information, Public Agenda, FIRST Robotics Conference Information, Hotel & Travel Discount Information, General St. Louis Information

Coming Soon! Pit Map, Site Information, Pre-Order Lunch Form, Team List, St. Louis Hotel Map, Load-In Map

As you make plans to attend CMP, be aware the Wednesday night Load In will include the opportunity to work on your robot and encrypt your radio—details to come. Again, qualification rounds start at 1 PM on Thursday, April 26th—your robot must have passed inspection by then! Plan ahead to make sure you have all the necessary team members on hand. Only five
(5) team members per team will be allowed in the pits. Please remember one (1) of these team members must be an adult.

Robots/Crates: Every team receives a donated FedEx shipment HOME from the CMP. You must ship your robot and any additional crates home through Shepard Exposition Services. You cannot take your robot or crate from the event unless you have received written permission from FRC. All exception requests for the CMP should be received by April 18th.

Finally, if you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to contact Team Support at [email protected] or 800-871-8326, “0”.

Go 2012 Championship Teams!

Sincerely,

FRC Team Support
