RePLAY Coach Email Volume 18 2/1/21 Fieldhouse Move and Event Registration Updates!
If you are new to this email this is the place where you will find all of the Washington specific FIRST LEGO League information. Coaches and team administrators in the FIRST system for the RePLAY season will be added weekly. 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.
I have 5 items for you today, please read them all:
- FIRST Washington Fieldhouse Update
- Coaches Meeting Feb 10th
- Mini Challenge Update and Bonus Challenge!
- Event Schedule and Registration Update
- FIRST Washington Grant Update
We are officially moved out of our fieldhouse as of today, 2/1/21!
I apologize to those coaches that have emailed me in the last few weeks that I still owe responses to, I will be answering all emails over the next few days and hopefully you will get some answers from this email. For those who have never been to the fieldhouse, I thought it might help to understand what it took for us to be out in a month if I shared some before and after pictures! There were 4 people working on this since the end of December.
As you can see it was a lot of work in a short amount of time! I appreciate all of your patience while we were moving out of our space! Stay tuned for the fall when we move into a new one!

FLL Mini Challenge Update and Bonus Challenge!
The final certificates and raffle tickets will be emailed out this week. Thanks to all the teams that participated! The date for the raffle is still in the works!
Event Schedule and Registration Update
I have updated the event schedule to push the events out one more week. So the first event will start on March 14th. The event schedule will be updated on the website by the end of the week, and you should receive a survey from me to rank your preferences for event weekends. Invoices should go out to teams around the middle of February, and teams will be placed in their events by the end of the month. The invoice amount for teams attending events is $150. To see the event schedule- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/challenges/event-schedule/
*Teams will be added to the Remote Event Hub for their individual events after all teams are placed in events.
FIRST Washington Grant Closes this friday!
FIRST Washington grant is open. It is more important than ever this year to register and fill this grant out as soon as possible if you want to participate this season. It is our goal to make sure that everyone who wants to participate can, and don’t want money to be a barrier. Additionally, if your team is in a stronger financial position, consider donating funds to allow other teams to be able to participate this season. If you are able to make a donation to support a struggling team, please email me at email@example.com
The grant will close this friday, click here to fill out the FIRST Washington Grant.
