Take everything.

I never will forget the year where another team helped us out and gave us parts that we forgot. The teams became so close. It was a shame that we got to go to state and they didn't.

Sure, but *take* them just in case. Even if they aren’t allowed, they might be needed somewhere. Our motto was always “Far better to have a ton o’junk out in the car that we don’t use than to be sitting there wondering why we didn’t bring a ______”.

I would check with your Tournament Director regarding bringing your own power strip and extension cord. At some tournaments (like mine) they are not allowed. We set up charging stations to be shared instead.

In addition to the items on Professor Drake's list, I suggest:

- Robot, its attachments and the Apprenticeship model all in one small box. This is the only thing you take to/from the robot matches. 

- USB cable

- USB memory stick with backup copies of the kids' programs and presentation (if using PowerPoint) 

- Power strip

- Extension cord

- Duct tape for taping down extension cord

- Lego pieces for any last minute repairs/improvements 

- 27 gallon heavy duty tote ($12 at Home Depot) for carrying everything to/from your car

Has anyone taken the time to put together a list of all the things that should be taken to competition? This is our first year and I've made a list but it feels so overwhelming, I'm terrified I will forget something vital.

Thanks.

One loop in base + any loops you can gather from the field.  Gathering some could cause you to lose full points on other missions (like removing more than 1 hoop from Search Engine).

We are a rookie team working towards the project based learning model.  Do we
have to get all the loops from the table or does the team start with some in the
base?  I couldn't find this information in the challenge manual, but I saw on a
you tube video that one team had 3 loops to start with.

Thanks for your help!
