R7 Alliance Scrimmage Event
The R7 Alliance (1730, 1986, and 1987) is excited to announce our 6th annual scrimmage event on Saturday February 18th from 9 am – 3 pm! Location is Lee’s Summit High School B gym. Entrance is on Browning St on the west side of campus.
We plan to have inspectors from the Kansas City Regional on hand for any teams that want to go through a mock inspection before the actual event.
We are asking that teams bring their own extension cord/power strip to charge their batteries and as many game pieces as possible so that we may be able to simulate matches on the field. (Please label these game pieces!!!) Teams should also bring any tools you may need as there will not be a tool shop available. We have been asked to make sure that teams do not drive robots on the uncarpeted areas of the gym floor to avoid making marks.
Field Access: Matches will run every 15 minutes beginning at 9:30 am, with a total of 10 minutes of field access for teams. For the first two and a half minutes, a match timer will run for teams to practice autonomous and match timing. Teams can use the remainder of the 10 minutes of field time for any additional testing.
Our field will consist of one completed airship, both boilers and chutes, and three hoppers on the field. We will have sign ups for each end of the field so teams who wish to practice climbing and gear placement can do so at one end and teams who wish to practice shooting can do so at the other end.
Concessions: We plan to have donuts and coffee for breakfast, and hot dog and hamburger meals for lunch along with typical snacks. We will provide a menu with pricing to any teams attending.
We appreciate your continued support of these concessions to continue to fund the elements for use at the scrimmage and the KC regional practice field.
