1. Robot Sets: A quick note from Jr.FLL and FLL Product Development Manager Amy Mitchell-Hartson: The FLL robot set is currently on back order for U.S. orders. The recent shipment was held up by customs, and is not expected to be released until September 13th. I recognize that this is bad timing, but unfortunately there is nothing that we can do to have customs release them at a faster rate (unless one of you know someone uber special). If teams contact you regarding their robot set order, please let them know that we will process all orders ASAP.
Please encourage teams to start the project and build the Field Setup for now to keep the season moving. Speaking of the Field Setup…2. Rookies and FSKs: Approximately 23% of registered teams for the 2010 FLL Body Forward season are rookie teams. One thing that the rookie teams may not be aware of is that they need to have access to a Field Setup Kit (FSK). In your email blasts to teams, if you could please remind teams that they need access to a FSK and that the ordering period ends in a few weeks, we would be very much appreciative.
