We’re looking forward to getting to work with all of you and hopefully build some even better relationships with the amazing teams from MAR!

Just a heads up, 1807 is from Allentown NJ, not Allentown PA.

@tjf, thank you for the correction.

@zcohen, yes! And we are so excited to host you and your friends.

…also want to note that we are welcoming our friends from Team 3015, Ranger Robotics from Rochester as well. Should be an awesome year at Ramp Riot with a good variety of teams!

Team 341, Miss Daisy, is excited to announce that Ramp Riot 2017 is already full!

…but please don’t worry. If your team has not registered yet, please make sure that you do. Each year we can have as many as 5 teams drop in the weeks leading up to the event. The odds are good that you will make it in, even at this stage. Please register here: http://www.rampriot.com/register-your-team/

Ramp Riot XVIII is still looking for volunteers!

We could still use help in all areas, but are particularly in need of:
Referees
Field Reset
Queuers
Judges
CSA

If you are interested in helping out and supporting our teams, we would certainly appreciate it. You can sign up to volunteer HERE.

We also could use help with event setup on Thursday evening (11/2) and Friday (11/3) all day, and event teardown (immediately after the event on 11/4), especially if you are familiar with setup for the 2017 field. If you can volunteer your time for these tasks, please also sign up using the link above.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

Thank you!

Every Ramp Riot I have ever been to has been awesome, and I’m sure this year will be no different. Looking forward to this years!

Keep an eye out for that ref position… :wink:
