Post  Jane Elizabeth on Sun Nov 03, 2013 9:27 am

The UOIT competition runs from Thursday, March 6 (pit crew only this day to set up) to Saturday, March 8. Qualifying matches are Friday from 9am - 5pm, with highly encouraged participation of all team members on this day. There is mandatory attendance of all team members on Saturday from 9am - 5pm. Team shirts/orange shirts are mandatory. 

Families and friends are encouraged to attend either Friday or Saturday or both. Reminder that there is limited seating at UOIT. Family and friends should come early for best seats! All attending must bring safety glasses if they wish to tour the pits, including children and infants. They have some safety glasses available to sign out there, but they are limited.

Lunch is not provided either Friday or Saturday. Campus food outlets (cafeteria, etc.) are all open on Friday, but only the Tim's is open on Saturday, and it is VERY busy. Please bring your lunch, or money to buy your lunch.

UOIT at the southwest corner of Simcoe and Conlin in Oshawa. Entrances are either off of Simcoe or Conlin (Founder's Drive). The competition is held in the Student Rec and Wellness Centre. There is paid parking available on Friday. This can be had in Founder's Lots 2 or 3 or in Lot 6 north of Conlin. Parking can be paid upon exiting the lot ONLY by credit/debit card. There are no in/out privileges. Parking is free on Saturday. If parents are dropping off, they may do this right at the Student Rec and Wellness Centre. Ride shares for Friday and Satruday will be arranged closer to the date and posted on the Forum.

The Campus Rec and Wellness Centre at UOIT can be seen on the link below. You have to drive right into the UOIT campus to get to it. The attached map is a bit hard to read, sorry. The building is in blue on the middle left of the area of the campus shown, right beside the Science Building. There's a kiss-n-ride type loop in front of it for dropoffs. If parking, all parking on Friday is paid with no in and out privileges with no cash exit (automated credit/debit card only), however all parking is free on Saturday. There will be FIRST signs (look for the logo) on Simcoe and along the interior roads of the campus to direct you to the Rec and Wellness Centre.

Once inside, the playing field will be down the hall directly in front of you. Follow the music! The pits are a left turn at the end of the hallway. Safety glasses are mandatory before you enter the pits. If you hear someone shout "Robot!", get out of the way.

Match times are available only the day of competition. When students arrive, they can go to the admin desk in the pits to look at the schedule taped to the desk and text the competition times to family/friends, if desired. Lunch is approximately 12-1. Campus cafeterias are all open Friday to purchase lunch, however only Tim's is open Saturday and it is VERY busy.

Go to usfirst.org to see the matches streamed live.
