Load In & Load Out
Team Load In will begin on Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. (FYI our lane closure begins at 1:00 p.m.) and will open again on Wednesday morning from 6:00 - 8:00 a.m. (FYI no lane closure on Wednesday). Teams will drive up to the third-floor loading dock at the entrance located on Chartres Street (on the back side of the George R. Brown). Our loading docks will be behind Hall A and Hall B. Team Vehicles will be directed to numbered spaces by load in volunteers. Teams cannot unload on Chartres Street or Avenida de Las Americas. Teams cannot leave vehicles unattended at any time.
Please be respectful of other teams and the public in your departure, leave your area clean, and be safe. Team load out will be Saturday, 8:00am-3:30pm. Step 1.
Please have your driver place their orange load out pass in the front windshield of their vehicle. Step 2.
On Saturday, when your team is completely packed and ready to load out, bring your packed equipment to the queue, door A by the loading docks. Step 3.
Please call your driver and have them proceed to the third floor ramp on Chartres Street. There will be one lane designated for FIRST
Tech Challenge on Chartres Street. DO NOT use the FIRST
Robotics Competition lanes or the driver will be asked to circle around the block to get into the correct lane. Step 4.
Team vehicles should arrive within 10-15 minutes from your call. Drivers cannot arrive before the team is in queue at the loading dock. Your driver will be provided a loading dock space number as they pull into the loading dock area by a load out volunteer. Drivers must stay with their vehicles at all times. Step 5.
Please move your packed pit items to the assigned dock space number when told by one of the load out volunteers. Please be respectful of other teams and the public in your departure and leave your area clean.
