2013 SCRRF Fall Classic
Join us for Southern California Regional Robotics Forum’s annual off-season FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®), playing the exciting 2013 FRC game challenge: UltimAte Ascent℠. The mission of the Fall Classic is to expand the awareness of FIRST Robotics Competition to students, teachers, sponsors and mentors from all across Southern California, as well as to provide existing teams an opportunity to compete with their robotic creations once again. The event is open and free to the public. This year's event will again be held in a very modern, air-conditioned venue.

We recommend that you use Chase Person-to-Person QuickPay (https://www.chase.com/qp) to send payments from any bank account to SCRRF@LARobotics.org. You do not need a Chase account to pay via Chase QuickPay. There are no transaction fees for using this payment method.

A five-pound allowance is provided for the robots to accommodate repairs and minor upgrades. We will not weigh robots, but do expect teams to exhibit Gracious Professionalism® regarding modifications to their robots.

Alliance Selection & Tournament Play (Tentative)
Alliances will consist of three or four teams. Alliance selection will be in forward order (1, 2, 3, ...) for the second teams, in reverse order for the third teams, and in reverse order for the fourth teams. If Alliances have four teams, the alliance captains will have full discretion on which three teams play each match. There is no requirement that all teams in the Alliance play an elimination match.
If 12-15 teams participate, the elimination rounds will be played with four Alliances of three teams (semi-finals and finals). If 16-17 teams participate, the four Alliances will each have four teams.
If 18-23 teams participate, the elimination rounds will be played with six Alliances of three teams. If 24 or more teams participate, the six alliances will each have four teams. The #1 and #2 alliances will receive "byes" in the quarterfinal round and compete as semi-finalists.
Alliances are allowed One Six Minute Time-Out during the Tournament Play. Alliances may not give their time out to the other alliance.
Team 980 offers concession sales to participants as we have in past years.
