This message is sent to new judge candidates. Use subject "Request for being a Judge: Los Altos FLL tournement Saturday November 19"
I am working with a group putting on robotics competitions in Los Altos.
This year, we are having two competitions on Saturday November 19, 2005.
Your name has been forwarded to me as a possible judge at one of our competitions.
Please consider helping the Los Altos Teams of Elementary and Jr. High school students by being a Judge.

Judges will need to help us from 12:00 noon to about 5:30 PM.  The first hour will be for training and familiarization with the judging materials that we will provide.  You will not need to do any work before you arrive.  Your actual work as a judge will conclude by 4:00 PM so you can leave then if you need to do so.  If you are able to stay longer, we would really appreciate it if you would hand out the awards that you judged and say something about the winning teams.  This year, we have arranged the competition schedule so that the Judges will be able to watch a full set of competition rounds so that they can see the teams in action.  We will also have a demonstration by the Mountain View FIRST High School Robotics team and demonstrations by the best FLL teams.  In short, it is going to be a fun day of robotics for the teams and the judges so I hope that you are able to join us and help out or if not as a judge, join us as a spectator.

Please let me know by email or phone (home 650-968-4026 or cell 650-722-2128) as soon as you can if you will be able to help us or not.

Here is a little more information about this year's FLL competition.  The FLL challenge this year is called “Ocean Odyssey” and addresses how robots can be used to tackle challenges of our oceans’ health, bio diversity, and productivity.  The details are available at .  The award categories that will be judged are described at .

The Los Altos Local competitions will take place in the Multi Purpose rooms at Covington Elementary School which is located at 205 Covington Road, Los Altos, CA 94024 and at Oak Avenue Elementary School which is located at 1501 Oak Avenue, Los Altos, CA 94024.  The Multi Purpose rooms face the parking lots at both schools and are easy to locate once you are at the schools.  Here are links to Google maps for Covington Elementary School and Oak Avenue Elementary School.

Please let me know if you have any other suggestions for people I can contact about being Judges and feel free to forward this message directly to them.
