Milton Local Tournament 2011
Things to Know
The Milton Local Tournament is a practice tournament for FLL teams. It is not a qualifying event. Because this event is early in the FLL season, many teams will be presenting projects that are works in progress or running robots that are still under construction. Don’t let the early date stop you from bringing what you have so far!
When you register, please plan to bring a signed First consent form for each member of the team, 4 copies of your team information sheet, and your $25 registration fee. (Checks can be made out to Milton Academy). If you have preordered lunches, you should plan to pay for those at this time as well.
Please make sure your team members know their team number!
There is a lunch break scheduled from 11:45 – 12:45. We will have lunches available for teams that preordered lunch by October 24th. Teams are also welcome to bring food. All food should be eaten in the pit area. Classrooms and the competition area are food free!

Parking and Directions
Registration will take place in the Greenleaf Hall Lobby on the Milton Academy campus. Parking is available in the pool lot (marked in red on the map). One car per team may pull up to the door of Greenleaf Hall (marked in blue on the map) to unload. After unloading, all cars must be moved to the pool lot.
The Pit Area will be in Ware 500. Each team will have a table in the pit area with access to power and space for storage. Please plan to store all of your team’s belongings in this space. The tables will be labeled by team number. Your Core Values interview will take place at your pit table. Please leave the team number signs clearly visible to help the Core Values judges find you.
We will try to have a practice table available. If you would like to set up an additional practice field, please ask the pit manager to help you find an appropriate space. Do not set up practice fields between the pit tables.
The competition area for the Robot Game will be in the Thacher room in Greenleaf Hall. Only two members of each team should be at the competition table. If there is an emergency robot repair needed, other team members may come to the table at the discretion of the referees. Team members may tag out and be
replaced by another member of the team at any time. The seating next to the competition area is for the remaining team members and the on-deck team. Volunteers will direct teams to appropriate seating. All other spectators, including coaches and mentors, should watch from the bleachers.
Teams should be on-deck five minutes before their match is scheduled to start. Please make sure your team is aware of their scheduled matches – teams that are late to a match run the risk of forfeiting that match.
Project and technical judging will take place in labeled classrooms in Ware Hall – between the Pit and Competition areas. Teams should be outside the door of the judging room five minutes before their scheduled judging slot. Core values judging takes place at the team pit table.
Teams that require AV for their project presentations should bring all required equipment and be prepared to set up quickly and independently. Coaches and mentors will not be able to enter the judging room to assist with set up. The classroom used for project judging has a Smartboard, speakers, and power outlets available. Mac users who wish to use the Smartboard will need to bring a VGA adaptor. If you do not wish to use the Smartboard, the judges are also happy to view presentations and other materials on your laptop screen.
Teams should bring their robot and any printed programs or design materials they wish to share with the technical judges to the judging room. There will be a competition table available for demonstrating missions.
Core Values judging
Core Values judging will take place at the team’s pit table. Coaches, mentors, and parents who may happen to be at the table when the judges arrive are welcome to listen to the interview, but should not participate. Core values judges will also be observing and talking with teams throughout the day.
