Event meal options are being updated daily on upcoming FIRST Robotics Competition event web pages. Please check often to see what is available for your team. 

Most recently:

Owings Mills MD Event Sponsored by Leidos


Portsmouth VA Event Sponsored by Newport News Shipbuilding

This year we are implementing a new system that can be used to communicate inspection and pit status, and match schedules to everyone at the event.  

If all goes well in the first two weeks, we will be expanding it to include the ability to communicate with other teams and pit admin as well. At least one representative from each team will be asked to signup as a "communications liaison" in the PeachTalk area.

Feel free to select an event link and check it out. Keep in mind not all pit maps have been updated yet.

The direct links to each event are as follows:

There will be no team lunch pre-orders at the FIRST Chesapeake District Owings Mills MD Event Sponsored by Leidos and the FIRST Chesapeake District Oxon Hill MD Event events this year. We will post the venue concessions menus as soon as they are available.

FIRST Chesapeake District Bethesda MD Event Sponsored by Bechtel does have a pre-order- due March 5th.

Hey FRC teams! This year you can purchase event specific t-shirts - with team names on the back - at all events except FIRST Chesapeake District Haymarket VA Event Sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton.

Team Lunch pre-order form for the FIRST Chesapeake District Richmond VA Event Sponsored by Dominion Energy is available on the event webpage or here. Payment may be made via check, credit card or PayPal.

Deadline Feb. 25th.
