Something New – FRC Championship Lineup Show

Apr 18, 2016 Written by Frank Merrick.


53 Regionals, 65 District Events, and 8 District Championships down, one awesome FIRST Championship to go! I can’t believe Championship is next week; I hope everyone is as excited as I am!

We know the FRC teams look forward to learning their preliminary Divisional assignments and Qualification Schedules for Championship. This year, we’re trying something new. One of our staffers, Matt Pilotte, FRC Electrical Engineering Manager, thought it might be interesting if we had one of the FRC community webcasts build a show around the release of those preliminary Divisional assignments and Qualification Schedules. Many of the staff thought that was a great idea, so, that’s what we’re doing!

At about 8PM EST this Friday, April 22nd, we will be publicly releasing the preliminary Divisional assignments and Qualification Schedules on the FIRST website. At the same time, starting at 8PM EST, our friends at First Updates Now (FUN) will be hosting a one hour special, looking at those assignments and schedules and having special guests weigh in on such things as comparative Divisional strengths and exciting matches to look for.

You can tune in to the live FUN broadcast here. But if you must miss it (WHAT?!?), you can find the archived show here.

This is certainly going to be an interesting show. Thanks, FUN, for partnering with us in making the release of this information a little more entertaining!
