Excited Cat FIRST Robotics Competitioni

Next Week? Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?????


Yep! Next week we’re going to see FIRST POWER UP played at official events for the first time! I’m so excited to see this game played for real!


A few reminders and tips:

First – safety, safety, safety. It’s so easy to lose our safety focus during the excitement at competitions. Please take a moment with your teams to talk about the importance of safety at events. It probably wouldn’t hurt to review the safety manual as well.

Also, please review our rules and expectations for FIRST Robotics Competition events. These rules don’t change as much from year to year as our game rules do, but we are regularly making tweaks. And many times we find questions teams ask us are covered right in these rules, so please check them out.


As my first event this season, I’ll be visiting our new event in New York, the Central New York Regional.* I am really looking forward to it!



*Yeah, so, you know. Hide the pizza. And the wings.
