Field Update:
· This year we have a full playing field. The field is mostly functional and all necessary parts are there but there have been a few modifications for ease of field maintenance, but all of which should not affect field play.
· Field time will be allocated to each team so that everyone has an equal amount of time on the field.
· The practice will be informal but we do ask that you act in the spirit of FIRST in terms of Field Time.
