Kick-off is quickly approaching! I hope your team is as excited as we are!
Patricia Whelan Performance Hall in the new Calgary Central Library. The address is 800 3rd Street SE. There is plenty of pay parking on the EAST side of the building, and it’s right along the LRT line beside City Hall.
I recommend arriving around 7:30am so you have time to park, grab a cup of coffee and make your way to the Performance Hall. We’ve requested Luke’s (coffee shop) to open early for us, but I have not heard a confirmation of that yet. I will let you know once I hear back. There is two Tim Hortons within a block as well. The live-stream of the game release will start promptly at 8am and the full broadcast is usually about 2 hours long.
Kit of Parts:
Distribution will be on Floor 0 (street level) next to the performance hall. Don’t worry we’ll direct you when you’re there.
Pick up of KofP for unattending teams:
If your team is not attending our kickoff event, please reach out to Kim (kim(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)frcwest.com) about arranging Kit of Parts shipping or if you need to coordinate a surrogate pick up. Thank you to coaches who have already done so!
On behalf of FIRST Robotics Society, I wish you all a very happy holiday season, and we look forward to seeing you on the 4th!
Assistant Regional Director, FIRST Robotics Society
