MAR Championship Event
As the VIP co-ordinator of the Philadelphia MAR Championships, we would like to extend an invitation to all visiting teams to participate in our VIP Program. The purpose for the VIP Program is to formally recognize team sponsors, school administrators & faculty, town officials and anyone else that has a supportive role with your team. Every team has supporters that provide financial, educational or moral backing that without them, the objectives of the team wouldn’t be possible. This is an opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve.
Here’s how it will work. Upon arrival at Friday or Saturday’s event, your invited VIPs will register at the VIP Registration desk. At that time, they will be escorted to your team’s pit. You will have the option to either provide your own team ambassador to escort your VIP or we will provide an ambassador for you. We recommend that at a minimum, your ambassador explains FIRST Robotics, the agenda for the day and provide a tour of the pit and competition areas. While in the pit your ambassador should discuss the team’s structure, introduce them to team members and mentors where they can talk about their experiences of the build and competition season thus far and review specifics about the robot’s design. While touring the competition area, they should explain this year’s game and what they can expect to see that day.
Please take this opportunity to formally recognize your team’s VIPs as well as give the students a chance to demonstrate their abilities and accomplishments while interacting with them.
Please email us with your VIPs that you have invited so we can be prepared to greet them when they arrive. Please include their name and how they are associated to your team. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
