In the fall of 2011 Cyber Blue put together a series of videos on what to expect after build season ends. This was distributed to rookie teams in 2012 by AndyMark and has been given to several new teams for 2013.
We have split the video into chapters and it is posted on ClickFRC.org. Some of the specifics have changed since the fall of 2011, but the message still provides good insight to a new team on how to prepare and be ready for their first FIRST competition.
The chapter from Al on what to expect at Inspection (Chapter 6) is a great resource.
