Festival of Champions
By now, many of you have probably seen the announcement by FIRST Senior Management about the Festival of Champions to take place in New Hampshire on July 28th and 29th, 2017. We’re very excited to be hosting the Chairman’s Award winning team and the teams on the Winning Alliance from each FIRST Championship location for a two-day celebration. We’ve got several activities for the teams planned, including a special dinner with Dean at his home (so cool!), along with a competition between the winning alliances, to be webcast to the world. See the link above for more info. We still have many details to finalize, including all those pesky rules that will need to go along with this, but we wanted to pass along this news as soon as we could!
Encrypted FIRST® STEAMWORKS™ Documents
You want your encrypted game manual? You got your encrypted game manual. Download it now here. The paint may still be a little wet, so be careful.
For folks new to this, here’s the deal: Download the encrypted manual now to your iPhone/Android/PalmPilot/whatever (pdf apps like Foxit PDF or Adobe Acrobat are helpful). At the end of the Kickoff broadcast, we’ll reveal the code that will unlock the file so you can immediately start devouring all that FIRST STEAMWORKS goodness.
The Kit of Parts checklists, which will let you inventory your Kit of Parts, have also been encrypted and posted. You can find them here.
We’re still working on finalizing the drawing package that goes with the game. That likely won’t be ready for download before Friday, but we’ll let you know. It, too, will be encrypted.
All files encrypted prior to Kickoff use the same password, again to be revealed at the end of the Kickoff broadcast.
More news soon!
