You do not need to do the project. Of course you would not be eligible for awards but that sounds like the least of your concerns.
You might want to consider discussing food factor (food safety) with the team so that they learn something about it.
More importantly, do take the team to a tournament. Go with the intention of having fun and learning. Even if your don't feel that your robot is ready it is beneficial to go. The team will have fun. The passion of FIRST will rub off and the team will be better able to handle everything next year if they see a tournament in action.
Team #7 - The Rainbow Cows
We are a rookie team just getting started with the 2011 tournament requirements.In the interest of time, we may have to focus on the robot game and not work on the Project/presentation. Is this something that is ok to do?Our team of 7 is barely functioning together and our time may be better spent working on the game!Thanks,John Britto
