FRC Teams,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, and contrary to previous indications, we have scheduled the FIRST Chesapeake District Championship for Week 5 of the competition season. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the delay in providing this information.

The new dates for the FIRST Chesapeake District Championship are: March 28 - 31, 2018.

The first round of preference selection for the 2018 season closes tomorrow (September 28) at noon. Please confirm your team’s event preferences and make any updates before tomorrow’s deadline. For more information about the event preference system, refer to this FRC Blog post:  https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/blog/preference-system-for-event-registration

We are working toward a contract on the venue and will release that information as soon as the agreement is signed.
