Audience Times Throughout the morning there are various public events.  That is, if you just want to see how the competition looks you can watch the practice rounds that will go on all morning. The actual competition begins after lunch. Each team will have three opportunities to get the highest score they can.
Please make sure all team members, advisors, coaches, and spectators who come to the event understand that there is no flash photography or auto-focus for still or video cameras allowed at the event. Flash photography can affect robots using light sensors and auto-focus uses infra-red detection which can trash the program on an RCX. Please let everyone associated with your team know of this restriction ahead of time. Flash photography will be allowed at the closing ceremony only. It is not to be used at any other time during the day.
GRACE REQUIRED Many, many people have contributed to the Maryland FLL program this year. All of the volunteers you will see on the 21st, all of the companies who have provided the money, the folks at UMBC, and any number of other people have made this program possible. 99% of them have done it for a t-shirt and a hand-shake. Please keep this in mind when things go wrong (and when they go right) on tournament day. A thank you from one of your kids or yourself to a sponsor or volunteer would be greatly appreciated, and will go a long way in securing the future of this program in our state.


All campus food services will be open. The dining hall at UMBC will be opened on tournament day. They are preparing a selection of breakfast and lunch items that will be on sale the day of the event.

The teams will be bringing their lunches. If you are planning to come to watch for the day you will want to bring food or buy meals.. The parking will be very tight so you will not want to leave and return.

TechBrick Stuff We will have about 30 TechBrick round pins for you to wear. We also have a large banner you can put up in the stands.
