Dear FIRST Tech Challenge Community:
Thank you for your patience through the national registration and event sign-up process.
Many of you have contacted me wishing to know several points of information.
1. Is our team's national registration showing as paid?
2. Did ORTOP receive our team's Event Signup form?
3. To which event is our team assigned? - This will be announced after the sign-ups close.
4. When are the deadlines? Monday, October 17th for League and Tuesday, November 1 for non-league
I have answers for #1 and #2.
Please click and consult the FIRST Tech Challenge Oregon Registration and Events Status table I prepared this morning, Monday, October 17th. The information is current as of 10:00 am. It does not update automatically to reflect additional national registrations or event sign ups submitted after that time. I must to that task daily by manually changing the spreadsheet.
I've represented team status as to national registration and Event Sign-up in text/colors in Column B.
- No Color - National Registration Paid and Event Sign up received. YAY!!
- Bright Yellow - National Registration Paid but Event Signup has NOT been submitted
- Peach - 2015 Team - Did not re-register for 2016 season, Event Signup Not Submitted, has not contacted ORTOP to say team will not be participating - please do this.
- Goldenrod - National Registration is NOT PAID but event signup submitted
