Hey Oregon Teams!
Event Registration opened today for the Autodesk Oregon Regional event on March 8 – 10, 2012. I am highly encouraging all OR and southern WA teams to register soon as we will have 51 FRC teams from OR and SWA and 54 slots to play. I see Maui HS, Anchorage and two ID teams are already on the OR roster so please don’t delay in securing your place.
New this year, the two Seattle (Mar 22-24) and one Spokane (Apr 5-7) regionals are open to the entire nation to register. We should have extra slots in WA for the second registration round. Also note there is Sacramento, Fresno (new this year) and Salt Lake City regionals to choose from for 2nd plays.
Rookie teams — don’t panic — we have held back slots for the 11 new rookies so rest assured we will get you into Portland. TIMS can be a bit complicated your 1st time through so know Tara, FRCteam support and myself will help you in the coming week with registering. Here is a quick tutorial to help you navigate TIMS. Also, FRCteams@usfirst.org can help and they are live from 5:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. PST M-F at 800-871-8326 x 0 to walk you through it on the phone.
For Veteran teams, you must have your TIMS account updated prior to registering for an event.
It’s going to be a rockin’ season.
