Gosh, that is SO hard!  I don't know what I would do!  My heart would be
breaking.  I don't know how you could possibly tell some of the kids that
now they don't get to actually do it.  Have you already been meeting this
whole time with all of the kids??  That would honestly just feel miserable.
 But you also can't have 18 people working on it and then only send ten of
them to the tournament.  The team can only have ten kids, and that's it.
 That means the whole season, all the work, etc., can only be done by ten
kids.  You can't have the work of 18 kids going to the tournament, even if
it's only represented by 10 of them.

What about calling FIRST and explaining the situation and that you only
missed the cut-off by an hour, and ask if you still just register your
second team since you don't need an extra kit, right?  I mean, it seems
like the reason they stop the registration is because they run out of kits.
 But if you can use the same table/mission models and just meet with the
two teams at different times, then maybe they would let you?

I don't know what in the world else you could do.  Unless you have some 9
yr olds in the mix and you could ask them if they would be willing to do Jr
FLL this year and FLL next year.  Sorry that happened and good luck!!  Keep
us posted on what you decide.
