I am from Mindframe Education (Mindbot team), and this is our first time doing FLL, as well as my first year coaching an FLL team. The information is very overwhelming, and we are a little late in terms of preparation. I would greatly appreciate it if you guys can help me with the information on the followings: 1. The important dates other than the ones listed on the websites. For instance, on the FLL websites, it says that Nov 14th - Jan 17th are regional tournaments. But when is it for us, the Northern VA and DC area? And where does it take place? Sharmila: The regional tournaments will be in your city. Once you register and pay at the VADC website you will be able to create your account, add team member information and after you pay the $102 fee, you will be able to choose the tournament date and location. You can choose one of the three Saturdays in November. These dates are assigned on a first come first served basis. Please see the link below. https://vadcfll.cisat.jmu.edu/ 2. Where does our regional tournament take place? Sharmila: You will see a list for your area when you make your selections. 3. What happens when a team wins a loses in the regional tournament? Does the team advance to the next regional round, or does the team move on and compete in a bigger tournament? And when a team loses in the regional tournament, does it mean that they are done and have to wait till next year FLL? Sharmila: If you win the regional tournament as a Champion, you qualify for State level. The State competitions are held at James Madison University and typically in the first or second week of December. We would greatly appreciate it if you guys can provide us with the above information. Thank you in advance!
