The Gitchi Gummi Get Together is our summer robotics competition that takes place in Duluth. This event was put together with the goal of becoming a sort of “summer retreat” for participating teams. In the next few years, our team hopes to expand the event to include even more activities, workshops, and team building opportunities. As always, it’s free and open to the public.

Venue: Duluth East High School, Duluth, MN 55804
Date: July 19-20, 2019 Duluth, MN
Registration Fee: $250
Meals: Dinner ($10) and Lunch ($6)

Dinner will be a potluck provided by the Daredevils, and lunch is pizza. Diet limitations will be met to the best of our ability as long as we are informed of them in the team registration.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact: karollundquist@gmail.com

Water and portable toilets would be available, and the Duluth East locker rooms would be open on Saturday morning for showering. Teams would need to provide their own tents.

This is not a definite option, but we would like to know if there are any teams interested. 


RULE CHANGES

THESE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE PRIOR TO EVENT, TEAMS WILL BE NOTIFIED OF CHANGES.

  • 30 seconds will be added to tele-op, putting the total match time at 3 minutes.

  • 5 lbs. will be added to the robot weight limit.

  • G10 will be amended to allow momentary, incidental extensions, i.e. unintentional extension not impacting the match.

  • G13 will be amended to allow incidental contact (i.e. unintentional contact where opponents’ actions are not impeded) with other robots that are fully in their hab zones.

  • G9 will only be violated if the second robot’s bumpers fully cross the cargo ship line.

We recommend that all teams have at least three drive team’s worth of students trained and prepared to use the robot controls. We will be publishing a recommended schedule that indicates which matches teams should use their primary or in-season drive team in, to ensure fairness. However, we encourage teams to be fluid, and we do not require strict adherence to this schedule.

Alliance captains can’t pick other alliance captains.

Teams must have multiple drive teams (min. of 3).
