The Animal Allies Challenge Release August 30, 2016 went great. By now I am sure that everyone has had a chance to watch the video, read the rules, and program a couple of missions.   I am sure that you would all like to know the event locations and dates that we have planned…

We are also working to set up a couple of back-up qualifier sites that we might activate if we fill the events above.

Detailed Kick-Off Event information will be released in September.  Registration for these events is not yet open as we are now setting these up in the system. Once event registration is live, I will send out a notice with instructions outlining the registration process.

After your team is registered to a qualifier event, we will send out an invoice with instructions on how to pay the $55 qualifier event fee. If your team operates under a purchase order system, we will work with your group to provide the paperwork needed to satisfy that process.
