SCRIW VIII (South Carolina Robotics Invitational & Workshops 2018)

For the eighth straight year, FIRST Robotics Competition teams 1293 (Pandamaniacs) and 2815 (Blue Devil Mechanics) present:

SCRIW VIII
South Carolina Robotics Invitational and Workshops 2018

The Carolinas’ oldest off-season tournament is back for a eighth awesome year, giving teams one more chance to play FIRST POWER UP in a near-official environment!

SCRIW is October 20, 2018, at Dreher High School in Columbia, South Carolina once again. We’ll have a full one-day tournament on an official FIRST field, with an onsite FTA to ensure everyone has a great experience. With the faster inherent cycle times of this year’s game, we expect we’ll be able to give everyone plenty of matches while still retaining a pretty relaxed pace. (We’ll know how many as the numbers firm up.)

Registration is $350 for registrations paid before July 1, and can be started online at http://scriw.org/team-registration-form/. After July 1, it goes to $400.

If you want to field a second robot for your team, B-team registration opens July 1 and is $200. Pre-rookies (teams that will be rookies in 2019) compete for free with your registration. Between the on-site workshops and the real-as-we-can-be competition format, it’s the absolute best way to give your new students experience before the season begins!

We hope to see you there!

We had a blast last year with my team and our rookie team and we plan to come back. Just one question! Is it SCIRW 7 or 8?

We’re looking forward to it!

And this will be the eighth edition. We started in 2011 as the first off-season event in the Carolinas, and we continue to hold successful events thanks to the continued demand by the teams. :slight_smile:

Even if I don’t attend with a team, I hope to make it out to at least watch. We attended in 2016, and it was a blast! It’s great knowing we have an off-season in Columbia!

Teams are getting out of their post-Championship cat naps and registering!

You already clarified this would be the 8th though, but may want to update the opening post.

We run off-season events, we don’t read roman numerals. :stuck_out_tongue:
