2023 FIRST Robotics Competition Western & Central PA Kickoff – 1/7/23

The FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff will be held Saturday, January 7, 2023, and we are happy you are all a part of the event.  The Western & Central PA Kickoff at the McKeesport High School will be a “Pick up Only” event.  This means that team members may stay warm and cozy at their home base while a driver (and companion?) visits the McKeesport High School to pick up the Kit of Parts that will be used for this season’s game, 2023 CHARGED UP presented by Haas.

If you cannot attend the kickoff, please send us an email letting us know that another team will be picking up your team’s kit so we know that you want your kit to be picked up by someone other than a coach or mentor of your team.  It’s not formal, but we would like to know what’s up.

Please call 610-401-4310 if you know you will have a delay, either now or on-route.
