TechGarage has 5 teams attending the Myrtle Beach, SC FRC tournament.
It is off-season in Myrtle Beach and we have booked two seven room condos on the beach at https://www.balibayvacations.com/. We have parents/teachers from the program who have booked 2 bedroom condos at the same property if you are planning to attend and want to make a reservation. We are coordinating housing for TechGarage 5949, FAU
We will be at the Myrtle Beach Convention center from 8 am to 6 pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We are 2.5 miles to the convention center and the bus will pick us up in the morning and afternoon. We will require location tracking via Snapchat or Google for everyone who is going. Dinner will be free time for groups to eat locally where their are numerous tourist options near by. Everyone will be responsible for their own food purchase and we will have options in the morning for a quick breakfast at the condo and will coordinate making sandwiches etc for lunch if the convention center options are limited.
We encourage everyone to register ASAP where a seat on the bus is not guaranteed. We have numerous participants who have worked really hard on the robot and they are our priority for attending. If you haven’t been around TechGarage much but would like to attend please register and pay the bus and housing fee. Once we have everyone registered that is planning to go we will determine how many seats/rooms are available we will issue refunds based on capacity and participation in the six-week build. We have no interest in managing participants who are more interested in a fun trip versus building a robot. We may have open seats on the bus for parents who would like to ride with the teams and can help chaperone and volunteer at the tournament. Adults will occupy the lower level of the double-decker bus.
