To any teams who receive invitations to participate in the Virginia-DC FLL
Championship tournament at Harrisonburg, the best advice that I have for
you is to sit tight and wait for the welcome email that will show up in the
next two weeks.  It will have information about the schedule, discount
lodging, and extra activities.

Or, you can go to the archives of this list.  There is some stuff posted
there from previous years.

Here's the outline for the Championship:
Many teams arrive Friday evening.  The Harrisonburg Holiday Parade starts
at 7:30 (see
http://www.virginia.org/Listings/Events/HarrisonburgHolidayParadeTreeLightingCeremony).
Some years there is also an activity available for FLL teams.

All judging sessions will be on Saturday this year at JMU's Memorial Hall.
This is a change from previous years.
Typically Division 1 teams are judged in the morning, and Division 2 teams
in the afternoon.  (NoVA teams with TJ candidates--don't panic.  We'll
coordinate with TJ and ensure that your team is judged in the late
afternoon block.  Many, many students have done this successfully in past
years.)
JMU puts on science activities--for team members only--both mornings and
afternoons when you aren't in judging.  Information about available
activities and how to sign up will be in the tournament information
message.  Requests for activities signups will be due the week of
Thanksgiving, so be forewarned.

Sunday will be Robot Performance day at Harrisonburg High School.  Some
teams may be requested to attend judging callbacks as well.  Teams are
notified of callback requests by phone Saturday evening, or during check-in
on Sunday.
We'll have 216 robot matches overall on Sunday, so we won't get to the
awards ceremony until late afternoon, but everything is over and cleaned up
by dinner time.
