Dear all,

We participated in Falls Church tournament today. As a rookie team, we did not know that we should look at the screen in the gym for scores on our three robot matches. We were sitting at a corner. When the closing ceremony started, there was nothing on the screen.

We waited to the end of the closing ceremony with no information on our scores. When we approached the organizer, we were told that all score sheets on paper have been thrown out.

As a new team, we really would like to know what our scores for robot matches are. We already reached out to today's organizer but have not heard from him. Are there other places where the scores maybe online and accessible to us?

Thanks!

Chao

 Yes, I do
 much as Amy described.
 I go
 to the door, welcome the team and invite them to enter, and
 when everyone is through the door, I close it and say
 "I am starting the clock now."

 Hi Cedric and
 All,I apologize to all for discouraging
 introductions, introductions are polite and professional. 10
 minutes per judging session minimum, time starts when the
 door is opened.
 
 I recall once when
 judging, there was a large and fun team that came into the
 judging room and performed an elaborate introduction/ cheer
 with choreographed movements. It was fun and enthusiastic
 and cool and well-done, but it did take quite a bit of time.
 I'm unsure how the cheer enhanced the judging session.
 So, just a caution.
 
 When I'm
 judging, I usually volunteer to open the door, I wear a
 silly hat, I often greet the team by asking them to
 "Come on In" (a la Price-Is-Right emcee) and I
 jokingly demand high-fives. So, as a judge, I'm trying
 to break the ice. I figure happy kids having
 fun will give judges better information (and have a better
 experience) than anxious kids desperately trying to perform
 exactly the way they planned to. I hope I don't cause
 teams to freak out too
 much;)
 My experience as a
 coach is that most judges greet teams with smiles and an
 encouraging demeanor, and often they are really friendly and
 jovial, with silly hats or high-fives, or an intro
 phrase.
 
 I try to
 encourage my team to have fun at the tournament and to help
 other teams have fun also. Every team earns and wins
 memories of the tournament, I want those memories to all be
 good, and this is something I can do, no matter whether I am
 coaching or judging or parenting.

 Thank you for
 your replies. I got mixed replies on the
 introductions.It sounds like it is counted against time
 and a name tag may be sufficient.However, it
 would help if it breaks the ice.
 
 Steve, 
 Do you count the introduction time
 for both Core values and Project?
 I guess it matters more during
 Project as they have only 5 minutes to present
 as soon as they walk through the
 door. 
 
 Thanks,
 Cedric

 part of the 10 minute session.  There isn't enough
 spare time not to include it.
 Although competition rounds with the
 robot are open to the public, there will likely be a limit
 on how many people can get close to the
 tables.

 We viewed the fllstartingpoint video which was
 very helpful.My apologies for the long list of question
 and  if we missed any from the video.
 We're a rookie team and needed
 clarification on the questions below-Core
 values1. Are the kids allowed to take the
 poster into the room?2. Is this a closed
 session?3. How long is this session?4.
 Is this 5 minutes for the Core value activity and 5 minutes
 for judging?5. Should the kids introduce
 themselves? Will this be counted in the time
 allocated?6. Are only 3 adults allowed in the
 room with the kids?
 Project1. Is this
 5 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for
 judging?2. Should the kids introduce themselves?
 Will this be counted in the time allocated?3. Are
 only 3 adults allowed in the room with the
 kids?4. I assume this is a closed session and a
 poster/trifold is allowed in this room.
 Robot design1. Is
 this a closed session?2. Should the kids mention
 their roles as we have some "experts" in
 programming who can answer questions.3. Should
 they walkthrough their binder?4. How long is the
 judging of Robot design?5. How many adults are
 allowed in the room with the kids?
 Missions1. Is this
 a closed session?2. How long do we get at the
 practice table?3. How many adults are allowed in
 the room with the kids?
