Opening Ceremony – Friday, April 21, 2023

The Opening Ceremony will be held in Reynold’s Coliseum. Doors to the floor open at 4 pm. Teams will be assigned a row of seats on the floor or in the bleachers on the floor. There are 17 seats in a row on the floor, if you are bringing more people, they can sit in the back or upstairs wherever they like.  Rows will be provided for FPOWs.  

Parade of Champions – up to 5 members per team & all FPOWs are encouraged to walk in the Parade.  Mascots, signs, and general team spirit encouraged. Div B will line up in the hallway to the right of the stage, Div C will line up to the left (there will be signs) you will attempt to line up by team number.  There will be volunteers directing you. We will call out each team as they enter, they will parade down the middle and then find their way back to the team seats. 

We’ll then have some opening remarks and our Keynote Speaker. Everything will wrap up about 7 pm.

Hotels

We do not have reserved blocks of rooms for States, but we do recommend the “Cary Crossroads” area, which you can easily search. This area is close to campus, has lots of easy parking, restaurants, and (maybe most importantly) is close to both a Lowes & Home Depot for whatever breaks on the bus.

Homebases

Space will be provided for home bases on Miller Field.


Announcements

You must know your Team # for States – tests will require your team #. It is in Avogadro, and on the Team Spreadsheet above.

Teams may bring 2-4 alternates to States. Alternates may compete in Trial Events and they must be included in Avogadro, on the Vandalism Form and have a consent form turned in.

Flight will be held in Carmichael Gym – the court is approximately 90 x 60 with a height of 26 feet to the lights. Here is an image of the ceiling. We will make our best efforts to turn off the HVAC for competition.
