FIRST Choice: Progress

A note from our Kit of Parts team, Kate & Collin:

We’ve had some calls expressing anxiety that we’ll issue the first round of credits in the midst of Christmas celebrations, so we’re going to take this opportunity to give you a general sense of where FIRST Choice is…

FIRST Choice: Opening Postponed, Part 2

From our Kit of Parts Team, Kate Pilotte & Collin Fultz:

Well, that was a doozy of a weekend. We will leave the technical details regarding the cause and remedies to the experts once this is all over (they’re pretty busy right now).

FIRST Choice: Opening Postponed

UPDATE 12/16/13: The FIRST Choice site is still under construction and is not yet ready for traffic. We're so sorry for this massive inconvenience. We'll post the new opening time with at least 24 hours of notice.

From our Kit of Parts Team, Kate Pilotte & Collin Fultz:

District Award Allocations and Kickoff Taping

District Award Allocations

Folks have asked what the allocations will be for awards at District Championships.

The Districts will have flexibility in how they allocate their awards, within boundaries.  This gives Districts the ability to tailor the award package available at their Championships to local conditions – team capacity at their Championship, number of rookie teams in their District, leadership preference, etc – while making sure the meaning of each award does not vary too greatly between Districts. 

FIRST Choice Update, LED Bulb Fundraising and Dean’s List Interviews

FIRST Choice Update

The following information is from our Kit of Parts team, Kate and Collin:

One of the benefits of allowing Teams to see what is in FIRST Choice prior to ordering is that we can receive feedback and adjust part information and credit values for certain parts. We want to tell you that we’ve decided to make adjustments to the FIRST Choice site, as needed, before the ordering phase starts.

Virtual Kit – Early Item Release

Here's some more information from Kate and Collin, our Kit of Parts team:

2014 Administrative Manual Sections 1-5 and Something New

Sections 1 through 5 of the 2014 Administrative Manual have been posted.  Section 6, Awards, is still in work but will be posted shortly. 

You can find these sections here: http://frc-manual.usfirst.org/

Something New – Robot Displays

I’ll admit the FRC Administrative Manual isn’t much of a page-turner, but it’s packed with information you need to know, along with many helpful tips.  Even if you’re a veteran team with many years under your belt, you should read it through completely.

Over the weekend, Dean, Woodie and Don did some taping of their portion of the Kickoff video.  Check out this photo:
