got an email today that we got a credit for not getting to play this year…and there’s a NASA grant? Might be a really inexpensive virtual 2021 season for us. Hopefully the rest of our team decides to dive in. (and NURC is scheduled for June 2021 also, speaking of water games)
I unsuccessfully attempted to register our team today. The instructions say we should search for an event and then add the appropriate 2021 season participation event. No events show up in the search. Did other teams get this to work? I don’t know if our team’s info is goofed up in the system or if it’s a website issue on their end.
I went in when it first opened to do it. Just as in a normal season, from the dashboard you select the option to register/view team events. I didn’t even need to enter in anything to search - it came up with a list of a couple events (regional registration, district registration, maybe one other?) and I could select the appropriate one to register.
It’s perhaps a little different, as in other years you would need to enter in a search in order to narrow down the list to find the event you want… but I suspect actually performing a search might be getting in your way.
Got word a week or two back that we were indeed not in. I was curious how many teams weren’t in and in short, a few afternoons later and we had a neat project to describe just how many teams were in so far, and a checker for which teams were in / weren’t in.
Edit: Just got word that some teams aren’t listing as registered despite paying with FIRST. I unfortunately can’t do anything to fix that, same as with some websites having a registration data delay, this system also has one sometimes. It’s not a final authority by far (trust FIRST in your email inbox more).
It remains to be seen how “in” we are. Students want to do the at-home Infinite Recharge, but are less enthused about the rest.
BUT… I just got word back on my request to the district to allow robotics to start meeting like athletics are: “let it rip.”
So my team will actually be able to return to campus next week!
