4. Tips from "Ref" Rich
The FTC Team Resources site is a great place to focus throughout the season.
http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc/team-resources or click on the “Team Resources Quick Link” often as you prepare for the “Cascade”!
From the Ref’s perspective, field
communication is vital to the tournament, so make sure to check out the
“Wi-Fi Resources” and “The Field Control System” sections of the Team
Resources site for important documents and guides to
ensure good FCS connectivity!
Submit Ref questions to SGarduno@USFIRST.org and Rich will answer all he can in the weekly ARIZONA FTC BLAST
5. Donation Destination
Most large businesses have a donation
