Spectators allowed during practice rounds?

Specifically at the UTC regional… My parents want to come but can’t come on Friday or Sat…
I would guess there would be no problem… but I wanted to make sure

Everyone is welcome to all parts of the robotics competitions.

No there will be no problem at all if your parents would like to come on Thursday. There will be a lot of work being performed on robots so they may not get to see that many running bots for a while but spectators are always welcomed and encouraged to come and watch.
