Arizona North Regional Robotics Competition
Dear FIRST Robotics Competition Teams, volunteers and FRC enthusiasts,
I am writing to share the hugely disappointing news that as a result of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and at the direction of our host, Northern Arizona University, the Arizona North Regional on March 11-14 has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution, and with the health and safety of our community in mind. Possible new dates for the Arizona North Regional have not yet been set but all efforts are being made to reschedule.
We recognize that teams have put an enormous amount of work into preparing for this event and we regret having to share such disappointing news. If you are in a state that has more than one regional and no travel restrictions, FIRST team support can help your team identify alternative events and can be reached at email@example.com.
As Regional Director and a FIRST Alum, this is hard news to share. I was looking forward to seeing you all, learning what great ideas you developed and critiquing everyone’s dance moves. I know you are frustrated, and I know you have questions. This is a rapidly evolving situation and we are all doing our best to make decisions that are in everyone’s best interest both on and off the field of play. I promise that I will share information with you as it is shared with me.
