Rule 30
30 - DOWNLOADING
• Downloading programs to robots may take place in the pits only - never in the competition area.
• Always download by cable.  Bluetooth must be switched off at all times.

Also, issues with MyBlocks and multiple computers are mitigated by the use of a Pack and Go file (*.rbtx) to save and transfer the programs. See this for additional information: http://www.nxtprograms.com/help/MyBlocks/tutorial.html#PackAndGo

Best of Luck!

As long as you bring a laptop, download cord and have your programs loaded on the laptop or a flashdrive, it's not a problem.
  A tiny word of caution about "myblocks", if you have copied from one computer to a flashdrive, make sure you also copy any files that contain myblocks.  If you use a myblock , but do not copy the file to the flashdrive for the new download, it will mess up and not be able to run correctly. Outside of that, you should be fine to just have every program on the flashdrive for the new computer.
  I always carry the flashdrive with the programs and a download cord to the tournament- just encase.
Good luck,
Brandy

Can the kids be able to download programs from the laptop at the tournament? I know there will not be much time but just checking.
