FIRST Robotics Teams 2052 (KnightKrawler) and 2472 (Centurions) are once again hosting a week zero event!
We have built the team version of the field, which is constructed primarily out of wood, and will be running a full day mock competition. These matches are intended to provide teams an opportunity to see how their robot interacts with field elements and other robots. Aggressive play (including robot-to-robot contact) is not allowed without prior consent from the other teams in your match. Climbing (if applicable) may not be allowed on the field. There will be no set match schedule; teams will sign up for play slots on the fly. We will make every effort to give each team equal play time.
We will offer unofficial robot inspections by trained inspectors (including a trained Lead Robot Inspector) and matches will be run by a trained FTA. We will also have a number of other trained volunteers present, including a game announcer! There will be no referees at the event, and we will not be tracking scoring.
When: Saturday February 16, 2019
Who: Any FRC Team (maximum 30 teams)
Where: Centennial High School – 4757 North Road, Circle Pines, MN 55014.

New this year! All teams are also eligible for a $10 discount on their registration fee if they donate a team swag basket for our raffle that contains at least one team T-shirt.
Field element auction: Some field elements may be available for auction. Highest bidders will go home with extra loading/scoring elements. Silent Auction bidding sheet will be available at the raffle table. Proceeds help to fund field construction.

Concessions will be available throughout the day.
