Cougars Gone Wired, FIRST Team 2996, is honored to be hosting a FRC scrimmage on Saturday February 22, from 9 AM – 5 PM. This event will provide teams with the opportunity to play Infinite Recharge on a full-sized field with other teams.


We will be in the main gym on the Coronado High School Campus. We will have power available, as well as a pit for each team. The pit areas will be 8’ x 10’ but if other space is available feel free to utilize it. The pits will not have tables but please feel free to bring your own. Our workshop will also be available to teams if needed.


As for the field, FRC Team 2996 will be providing all of the main field elements, however, we do ask that teams bring their Power Cells (yellow foam balls). We will be constructing the field on Friday night, so the field will be built and ready for competition before the doors even open on Saturday.


Our parent group will have concessions during the scrimmage. They will be selling nachos, hotdogs, pulled pork sandwiches, sloppy joes, breaded chicken sandwiches, candy, coffee, drinks, and snacks.


Here’s the tentative schedule for the day:

9:00 AM= Doors open

9:00 AM= Field open

12:00 PM= Lunch break

1:00 PM= Field open

5:00 PM= Clean up starts


Often teams want time in the morning just to get on the field and do some calibrations of their systems. The field will be open for whatever people need to do. When we have teams ready to run some matches we will, until then it will be open to calibration and practice.


As we get closer, I will send out information about how to set up your radio for the Field Management System (FMS). An RSVP would be appreciated, but it is not required. There will be plenty of room for last minute decisions!


If you have any questions please contact us.
