There can be only one!
February 16, 2019

Sponsored by MHS-FIRST Robotics Team 166 -- "ChopShop"               

Welcome to our  Week Zero competition. We are very excited to be sponsoring this scrimmage and we are looking forward to a great day of competition. The site for this competition is Merrimack High School, 38 McElwain St. Contact phone number on day of meet—603-320-6621. If for any reason you will not be showing up please contact us. The pits are situated in the cafeteria and the competition will be in the gymnasium. Food concessions will be in the cafeteria. Proceeds will benefit the MHS-FIRST Robotics Team.

School Policy—NO FOOD IS TO BE CONSUMED OUTSIDE OF THE CAFETERIA. Only water is allowed outside the cafeteria. Please do not bring open containers of coffee into the building.

Day of Event -- Upon arrival to the HS, please register your team. Match schedules will be created and distributed to teams at their pit areas. Robots and pit equipment should enter at the front of the High School.  There will be signs showing the way. Please note that although this event is being organized and run by FIRST, your team’s performance at this scrimmage in no way entitles you to any special considerations at any official district events you may attend. In the pit area, a six-foot table and an electrical outlet will be provided.  Please bring your own extension cords. Machine Tools: Chopshop has limited machine shop facilities and will help anyone needing assistance. Insurance rules preclude anyone but Team 166 members from using the machines. You have to be present to guide the work.
