FRC Blogged - Team Counts, Kit of Parts Drive System Option, Windows 8
As of 10AM EST on Monday, 10/22, we had 2,166 teams registered or waitlisted for events. That’s a little more than 18% greater than where we were last season at this point in the registration process. Note that 2,166 is a larger number than is showing on our ‘What Events and Teams Are In My Area?’ page on website right now, because this page only shows teams registered for events, not those waitlisted.
Kit of Parts Drive System Option
689 veteran teams took advantage of the option to receive an AndyMark Product Donation Voucher in place of the standard Kit of Parts Drive System for the 2013 season. Over 100 of those requests for the PDV came during the ‘extended deadline’ period, via email. We’ll be including questions about this option in our Kit of Parts survey at the end of the season so we can find out how this change worked for teams.
The software we’re releasing for the 2013 season hasn’t been certified to work with Windows 8. This doesn’t mean it won’t work, just that we can’t guarantee it, and we won’t be able to provide anything beyond cursory support if you decide to use it. We will be incorporating testing with Windows 8 in future seasons.
More later this week.
