3. Houston FIRST World Championship Meeting
"An informational meeting will be held in Room 3102 on the Houston FIRST World Championship from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.  We look forward to seeing you there."

4. Team Information Survey
We are asking that you please fill out this brief survey so we have a few more details about your team that we can use to make the event even better.  We want to know your theme song, and favorite accomplishments, we want links to your chairman's videos, and recap videos and a nice picture of your robot. Please fill this out as soon as you can but no later than the Tuesday before TRI please.

5. Pre-Order Lunch
If you would like to pre-order lunches please fill out the form below. We will have some concession but not hot food (no pizza or sandwiches, etc). There are many places around the school to eat if you would rather do that.

"Please fill out this pre-order lunch form. You will be expected to pay for the lunches before you retrieve your lunches. You will need to pay with cash or check at the time of the event (or mail a check before the event, email Allen if you are doing this). Each lunch will cost $6 for a Subway 6" sandwich (Italian bread, American Cheese, tomato, lettuce, & pickle), chips, cookie/dessert, and drink (can of soda or water bottle). Orders are due by 11:59PM 6/20/2016, Please put in orders early or let Allen@Spectrum3847.org know if you are planning on ordering lunches (helps us know how many cookie/desserts, chips, etc to buy.

Checks are made out to
St. Agnes Academy
Memo Line: Engineering Team"

6. Call for Workshop Proposals?
We have several planned workshops by some awesome members of the FIRST community including a "FIRST & Social media workshop",  "Sustainability, Fundraising, and Grants", "Vision Processing", and "Competition organization and Strategy". A full schedule will be coming out soon. But now we want to ask if any teams have any workshops they would like to give. This is a great chance to help educate more of the FRC community. 

Fill out this form if you would like to apply to give a talk.

7. Volunteers
We are just about fully staffed but there are few spots we still would like to feel. We are also open to training people in areas we already have filled as well.
Spots still needed
Interview Lead
- Looking for a volunteer to help lead the interviewing of team members about aspects of their robots. We want to educate the audience as well as entertain them. This would basically be asking brief questions about teams favorite parts of the robots, and making them feel comfortable on camera. These interviews would not be live.

Assistant Lead Queuer (Red Side)
 Would work to ensure the red side is queued up for every match. Would be working with the Lead Queuer to make sure the field is always ready on time.

Presentation Floater
- Help make sure the workshops/presentations are going smoothly. Probably help set up some of the camera equipment, etc. Start and stop cameras. Direct people to the right place, etc.

Emcee in Training
- We would like to train a new Emcee as well. You would help Logan and fill in for him from time to time. If you always wanted to be on the field and help get the crowd excited and push the flow of the event along now is your chance.

If you would like to sign up please register here or if you have friends/family members/acquaintances/etc who would like to volunteer give them this link as well.
