Infinite Recharge Coach Email Volume 16 – Kickoff is Saturday!
If you are new to this email this is the place where you will find all of the Washington specific FIRST Robotics Competition information. Coaches in the FIRST system for the INFINITE RECHARGE season will be added once teams are able to register for events. Every email from me will be numbered and that number lets you know which update it is, if you miss an update you can find it on our website.
Here is what I have for you today:
- Kickoff Jan 9 – Please RSVP if you plan to attend our strategy sessions after!
- Next Virtual Pits Sunday Jan 17th, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Kickoff January 9
For those of you who missed the FIRST blog about kickoff, you can find it here Since we can’t meet in person on the 9th, we have decided to do some remote brainstorming sessions over zoom. Here is where we need your help. We have a 500 person zoom account and depending on how many attend, that may not be large enough. We are asking each team to take a minute to poll your students and mentors so you can give us a reasonably accurate count or how many plan to attend these sessions. Once you have your count, please fill out this form to let us know how many from your team to expect. Please fill out this form by the end of the day tomorrow.
We plan to start these sessions right after kickoff ends (which should be around 9:40 pacific time) and will run them until noon or until everyone has decided that they have strategized enough!
I will send a zoom link out the This Friday once I have a better idea of headcount.
Next virtual pits Sunday, Jan 17, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm with FTC teams
We will be hosting our next combined FTC/FRC virtual pits on Jan 17 at 11:00 am. Based on feedback from the last round of virtual pits, we ask each team that hosts a pit to have a short 5 min presentation about their team which will allow 5 min for Q & A at the end. We will be announcing when it is time to switch pits for the first hour and the second hour will be much more free form.
Once again, please fill out this form if you either want a pit or would like to host a workshop during the virtual pits (you can do either, both or neither!) Not interested in hosting a pit or a workshop, no problem! Stop by just to see what everyone is up to and chat with other FIRST folks from the PNW (and possibly other regions)
