WEATHER ALERT FOR BAG & TAG

Dear TN Teams:

I have had many emails and texts asking what to do because many schools are closed yesterday and today across our state and our teams have lost a valuable last work day on their robot. Other teams have contacted me wanting to know how to Bag and Tag their Robot tomorrow when they cannot get to school to get access to their robot. Please know that FIRST has very strict policies about these two events. The following is a direct letter from FIRST that should answer your questions and concerns.

Many teams experience unexpected disruptions to their build schedule. We believe these disruptions can be an important learning opportunity for students on the team. Please refer to the 2013 FRC Blog:http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/blog-two-feet-of-snow for further insight.

All this said, Teams that physically cannot get to their robot to bag it up by midnight Tuesday, February 17th will need to bag it up immediately the next time the team has access. Teams should then make a note on the lock-up form that they were not able to get to their robot to bag it up on the required day. Of course, it goes without saying Teams are not allowed to work on the robot after midnight Tuesday, whether they were able to get to their robot beforehand or not. (In other words, they can’t take the opportunity to ‘make up lost days’)

I hope this helps! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Go Teams!!!
