Hello FLL Teams!
Here is the information about the Practice Tournament on Saturday, November 14th at Heritage Middle School, 600 Arlington Ave., Newark, Ohio! We have 18 teams from the area participating this year! Please contact Jeff and Nancy Richards with questions!
We are focusing on the robot rounds at this practice tournament. We also plan to have a Practice Core Values judging session. There will be a teamwork activity, and feedback will be provided to the team. This will be relatively informal – but will give you a good chance to see what judging will be like. This will take place during the robot rounds in the morning.
We will NOT be doing any project presentations during the practice tournament.
AND…There will be a concession stand in the cafeteria (also the pits). Proceeds will help support the Newark City Schools FLL teams! We ask that no food be brought into the gym.
The general schedule will be as follows:
8:00 AM Teams arrive
8:30 AM Opening remarks
8:45 AM Robot Rounds Begin
Core Values Judging will take place
1:00 PM Closing Remarks
Directions: From SR 16, Take SR 79/Cedar Street North Exit. Head North. Turn right onto Arlington Ave. The School will be at the end of the road.
Again – this is designed for FUN – no pressure! It is always great to get a group of FLL teams together to discuss their robots and share their experiences. We’ll have a detailed schedule of robot runs and judging times when you arrive.
Please join us for the Granville Robotics Booster Meeting on Nov. 5th in the GMS Project Center.
