Due to some technical ineptitude on my part I did not get the coach emails added to the championship email list yesterday as I had intended/communicated previously. I sent out an SOS to our wonderful technical director, Ralph Grove, late last night and the list will be set up this morning. At that time I will be sending out a welcome email to the championship list with more information about the tournament and answering many of the questions I have received from you. If you have sent me an email asking a question and I have not yet had the opportunity to reply to it, please know that an answer is coming!
Regarding the question of bringing extended family to the championship - the more, the merrier! Kumar is correct that they rule regarding who is allowed into the judging rooms will not change (i.e. up to two coaches and one historian with a camera in the room), but there will be a lot to see and do over the course of the weekend for teams and spectators alike.
More to come today....

Subject: [SPAM] [VADCFLL-L] bringing in extended family to JMU, Dec 5-6
allowed or not?

This is a general question related to the competition day at JMU.
I coach one of the FLL teams and got a question from one of the parents.
As we prepare for our Dec 5-6 trip to JMU in Harrisonburg, she wanted me to find out if she can bring her parents so that they can watch their grandson compete.
Can I assume that the grandparents along with parents would be able to enter the hall and watch the robot missions when the team participates?
I would assume they still will continue to allow only 2 (of not 3) adult folks from the team into any of the design/project/teamwork judging rooms though.
If anyone has experience from prior years, please let me know.
