Greetings 2017 FIRST® Championship Teams:
 
We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the FIRST Championship in St. Louis next month! We will be emailing you every Wednesday from here on out with important updates and reminders regarding the Championship event.
 
To start, we encourage you to visit the 2017 FIRST Championship website for important event details at http://www.firstchampionship.org/. This website is updated often, so check back periodically for new posts.
 
Shipping your Robot to Championship: All competing teams MUST ship their robot to the Championship event, using the FedEx donation. Teams who qualify at Regional Events will receive electronic shipping documents via email. Make sure to keep an eye out for communication from frclogistics@firstinspires.org concerning shipping your robot. More information about the shipping process, as well as a crate construction guide, can be found on the Robot Transportation page here: https://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/frc/robot-transportation.
 
Championship Activities, Events and Travel: FIRST® has partnered with GET Sports to provide assistance with all your travel needs to the FIRST Championship! Whether you need help with flights, charter busses, rental cars, or shuttles, GET Sports has a solution for you. This year they have added some additional services for your convenience, including meal deals at local restaurants, tours and attractions, and travel insurance. They even have some great fundraising solutions! And they aren't all business either! GET Sports has also partnered with some of the great local attractions to provide activities for teams in their spare time. Be sure to check out these options, as well as the FIRST City Quest by visiting their website at www.gettravel.com/first.
 
Coming Soon: During the FIRST Championship in St. Louis, Monsanto will be hosting tours of their facility in Chesterfield. It is about 30 minutes from our Championship locations and transportation will be provided. The total time commitment is about 3 hours. Students ages 12 and older, as well as mentors/coaches/parents, are invited and space is limited.
