Please bring a printed copy of your team roster to turn in at check-in. See this guide from Lanese Hendrickson for details of how to create your report. If you cannot print your roster,  please bring signed paper consent forms for each participant.

Thank You: Volunteer Calibration Teams

Thanks to teams 3796, 8853 and 2447 for volunteering for the calibration interviews!

Help Wanted: Elite Setup Crew volunteers!

I still need a few more coaches that know the field setup to help setup the fields at the Qualifier. Thank you if you have already signed up! Please contact me (courtney@coloradofirst.org) if you can help. We are expecting to start setup around 6:30pm.

Help Wanted: FLL World Class Field Setup Kits

There will be ~8 empty tables in the practice area next to the pits that need your FSK! Please bring your field setup kit (but not the table) to populate an empty practice table to share with the teams. We will have volunteers at the practice tables helping keep everything orderly. Please contact me (courtney@coloradofirst.org) if you can help.

Pizza Orders

Last day for pizza orders! I have to turn in the numbers this evening.
Order pizza and support the Poudre Robotics team! $12 for a large cheese or pepperoni Papa John's pizza! Orders due by 9 pm Thursday 11/13.
No new pizza orders will be taken Saturday morning. Team 159 will be selling some pizza by the slice as well as other items at the concession stand.

T-shirt orders due Sunday 11/9! (more)

We will have limited quantities available for purchase at the event.

FLL World Class championship is scheduled for January 17th. 

Tournament Day overview 

Check In

Team check in will start at 7:30 AM.  You should plan to arrive between 7:30 and 7:50 in order to have time to check in and set up your pit table before attending the coaches meeting at 8:10 AM.  Please read the tournament day document for additional details. Only one person needs to check the team in, the rest can go immediately to your pit table. Please do not change tables - that makes it hard for volunteers to find you.

Coaches Meeting

Don't miss the coaches meeting at 8:10 AM!  We will go over how the tournament will work, the latest rule clarifications with the head referee, and give you the chance to ask any last minute questions.

Field Setup Kits

There will be 8-10 empty tables in the practice area next to the pits and I need help filling them! Please bring your field setup kit (but not the table) to populate an empty practice table to share with the teams. We will have volunteers at the practice tables helping keep everything orderly.

Practice Matches

Every team has two scheduled practice matches. These are timed & scored matches in the main competition area.
