We at the Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference are happy to announce we will be holding the NMRC Invitational Tournament at the Bemidji Sanford Event Center on April 17th.
Our Governor has approved and promoted in person education and other athletic events such as Basketball, Hockey and Wrestling have been happening in our state for some time now. We feel it is time for Robotics too.
This event will consist of 24 FRC teams from north central MN and Eastern ND. As we all are well aware we are in the midst of a pandemic. Therefore we are taking a strict covid 19 protocol and are following all Minnesota Department of Health guidelines.
As we all have heard FIRST is unable to support “off season” events at this time, so we will be using an Andy Mark Field, home made elements and a version of an off season FMS.
This event is an opportunity for teams in our region to experience live competition, many for the first time with the IR challenge.
The event will be run semi regional style with some Covid modifications.
It is our pleasure to have First Updates Now (FUN) join us at this event to live stream and do Team Behind the Bumpers interviews!
We plan to show that events can safely be run (Depending on your location) to give our students the experience they have worked so hard for.
