FRC Top 25....40 polls open - Future of FUN Shows - Links

Some announcements about the future of FUN content!

Yes we will still working hard for the foreseeable future but with some modifications that we hope will provide great content and feature teams that maybe didn’t get a shot to be featured this season.

First off: We will be doing a Final FRC Top 25…actually 40! Teams must have played in an official Infinite Recharge match to be eligible (yeah yeah yeah but that’s how we are doing). The poll is NOW OPEN through Sunday 9pm eastern and you can vote at tinyurl.com/IRTop25Final

Make your case of who should be in the Top 40 in the comments below

After this next week (starting March 23rd)

FRC Mondays:
We will rotate every other week for our recap shows which will change into. Show formats will change a bit and instead will bring on 1-2 teams as teams to talk about their robots and seasons. Regions are already split into which championships teams would funnel into.

Houston Champs Spotlights: Southeast 7:30pm et South 8:00pm et, West 8:30pm ET first week (23th, 6th, 20th) (possibly Mexico)

Detroit Championships Spotlights: Northeast 7:30pm ET, FiM 8:00pm ET, North 8:30pm ET week 2 (30th, 13th, 27th)

Tuesdays: We have a couple things planned but will probably rotate back to our off-season shows.

Thank you everyone for your continued support. We also have 20+ Behind the Bumpers interviews backlogged and will work to get these out.

Tomorrow the FRC Discord will be taking over the FUN stream to play Jackbox. Join them from 9pm-midnight eastern and chill with some pretty awesome people at https://www.twitch.tv/firstupdatesnow

I was there at 7am helping to put the finishing touches on the field so you all could use it. None of us liked having to make that announcement. Especially since we then needed to go tear the field down again :confused:
