**FIRST EMAIL**/Robot Shipping Reminder/Awards Submission Info/Scholarships Update

Greetings Teams:

Even though it is only the 2nd week of build season, Robot Ship Day is right around the corner! All robots must be shipped or bagged and tagged (depending on your initial event) by Tuesday, February 23rd. Don’t forget that Section 4 of the 2010 Competition Manual (http://usfirst.org/uploadedFiles/Community/FRC/Game_and_Season__Info/2010_Assets/04_Robot%20Transportation_RevA.pdf) contains all the rules on transporting your robot, and you can find sample shipping documents on the Robot Shipping web page at: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/content.aspx?id=3570. Still feeling lost? We will also have a Senior Mentor conference call on robot shipping on February 11th. More details coming soon!
