- There will be a cafeteria selling food.
- There is seating area around the arena for the spectators and parents. We trust that this will contribute to their fun and enjoyment of the tournament.
- There is schedules practice round time slots allocated for every team. No practice rounds will be played in the Arena when the competition starts.
- There will be a 1 Minute team introduction during the Opening Ceremony because of time constraints.
- Pit Area will be open to public.
- If your team leaves for judging make sure someone watches your table.
- Only the coach and Mentor allowed in the judging areas with their team
- Interference from coaches and mentors in the judging rooms will not be allowed on this tournament; the judges will ask a coach or mentor to leave the room immediately in such an event. The only time that this will be allowed, is on special request if there is a language translations problem (at the latest during the coaches meeting)
While we all compete for the big prize I would like to urge all teams to again have a look at the core values of FIRST LEGO League. We are the only sport which really accepts the notion of gracious professionalism. It is of utmost importance that we show this in all that we do. And remember TO HAVE FUN!
Thank you Johannes de Vries
