Saturday's #G8KPR Schedule

Remember that rainy (understatement) day that we referred to as Kick Off 2013? You had 42 days--6 whole weeks--before game day. It seemed like plenty of time. You planned, you worked. Some of you were at your school working until 2 am the morning of Practice Day. But tomorrow is the day. Time is up. All the cards are on the table. It's time to roll.

Okay, that's just an overly dramatic way of saying that tomorrow is... GAME DAY! And here's the bare bones schedule. The entire annotated schedule is available under Team Resources on this site.

  • 7:30 am - Doors Open
  • 7:30 am - 8:30 am - Team Registration
  • 8:00 am - 9:00 am - Compliance Check in and Pit Set Up
  • 9:00 am - Drivers' Meeting
  • 9:30 am - Seeding Rounds Begin and Exhibits Open
  • 11:30 am - Lunch Break (on your own) (Exhibits are closed until 1:30 pm)
  • 11:45 am - Arena Must be Cleared
  • 12:30 - 12:45 pm - Compliance Open  (for teams who removed their robot during lunch. Not recommended unless major repairs are necessary)
  • 12:50 pm - Line up for Opening Ceremony
  • 1:00 pm - Opening Ceremony
  • 1:30 pm - Robot Competition Rounds and Exhibits Open
  • 4:00 pm - Exhibit Breakdown may begin
  • 5:00 pm (TENTATIVE) - Awards Ceremony
Please keep in mind that the awards ceremony will take place at the conclusion of the game. If your team is eliminated before the final round, PLEASE stay until the end. It is:
  1. First and foremost, good sportsmanship;
  2. Because you may win other awards and we don't want that awkward moment of people whispering "I think they left"; and finally,
  3. Because you are cool and we want to hang out with you as much as possible.
We are looking forward to an awesome game day!
