The GW Community School and Coyote Robotics announce their 7th Annual Pre-States Scrimmage, to be held Monday, Jan 21 (Martin Luther King Holiday).  Come to our school at 9001 Braddock Rd, Ste. 111, Springfield, VA between 1:00PM and 4:00PM.  You will have space to work on your robot and can use our tools and supplies if needed.  We will have a full field set up so you can test and adjust your Autonomous routines and can practice your TeleOp.  If we have enough teams with working robots who want to scrimmage, we can run matches also.  This will be a good chance to test and practice less than 2 weeks before the State Championships on Feb. 2nd .  We will have Certified Robot Inspector(s) and Referee(s), as well as a sizing box.  You can see if your robot is ready to pass the inspections.  You can ask questions about the game play and rules.


There will be no charge.  We can probably accommodate up to 10 teams.  Please email Gary Lindner at  if you are interested in coming.  Even if you are not going to states, you can still come and get a chance to compete your robot again without worrying about Judges, Displays and Notebooks.


Our school is located at 9001 Braddock Rd, Suite 111, Springfield, VA 22151.  We are located 2 miles West of the Beltway I-495 on Braddock Rd., between the intersections of Braddock Rd with Burke Lake Rd and Rolling Road, on the South side of Braddock.  We are on the ground floor of a 3-story office building behind the Kings Park Shopping Center.  It is most convenient to park in the Eastern part of the building parking lot and enter through the ground-floor entrance at the center of the East side of the building.  The school entrance is at the end of the central hallway.
