  • Sunday October 16 at Oak Avenue and Covington Elementary Schools  - Scrimmage: A scrimmage is a fun event where teams get together and run their robots against each other.  At a scrimmage, the teams will be able to get an idea as to how well they are doing relative to other teams and benefit from a cross pollination of ideas.  Because the Scrimmage happens half way through the season, most teams will only be able to run a few of the missions.  They will also be able to continue working on their robots during the event.  There will be up to twelve teams participating at each of the two locations.  Here is a tentative schedule:
      12:45 Room and table set up.
       1:30 Opening ceremonies – Presenting the colors and sing Star Spangled Banner.
       1:35 Game description -  Go over the rules for the benefit of both the spectators and the team members and give a description of how the scrimmage will work.
       1:40 Team introductions.
       1:45 Teams sign-up on the scoring board and the matches begin.  We should be able to complete a 2.5 minute match and be ready for another match to start every six minutes.  With one competition table, this will allow for 10 matches per hour with 2 teams per match which will allow all of the teams to have plenty of opportunities to run their robots and watch other teams.
      2:45 Break
      3:00 Matches resume.
      4:00 The rounds end, award category winners are determined, and the certificates are completed.  Teams can start to pull their materials together while this is being done.
       4:15 Announce the winners.
       4:25 Ask for volunteers to put on the November 19 Local Competition.
       4:30 Thank volunteers and Blach Intermediate School.  Take down the room.
       5:00 Depart.
