I hope everyone has seen the FTC Relic Recovery game animation video and has been studying the rules in Part II of the Game Manual. I also encourage you to also read Part 1 of the game manual as this document also has a few changes this season. All of this information can be found on the following FIRST webpage https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/ftc/game-and-season. If you have any questions about the rules in the game manual, team should post those questions on the FTC Forum to get officially clarification (https://ftcforum.usfirst.org/).

As your team starts thinking about their robot design to address the challenges of the Relic Recovery game challenges, we have some information that will help you prepare for the season. The following topics are covered in version #5 of the Florida FTC Newsletter:

1.            Florida FTC Kick-off Training Presentations Available

2.            Changes to the League This Season

3.            Software Tip From Kyle Hoyt: Reading the Special Vision Targets

It has been over a week since my last Florida FTC email newsletter and a lot has happen since then. The Relic Recovery game has been released and we have been dealing with hurricane Irma. I hope that everyone is safe and back in your house.  Given the number of people in Florida that are still without power, I am assuming that some of you still might not be back to your regular routine. I hope the recovery process in your area happens quickly and please let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

In the coming days, I will be sending out additional information to help you prepare for the FTC season. In today’s email, I am going to tell you about two grant opportunities that are available to teams in Florida. The following are the grant opportunities I have included in this email:

1.            Hurricane Irma Rookie Team Grants

2.            Florida FTC Rockwell Collins Grants
