The North Branch-Chisago Lakes FIRST Robotics Team will be competing in the 10,000 Lakes Regional at Williams Arena on the campus of the University of Minnesota Friday and Saturday March 28-29.

Sixty-four robots will roll into action 8:30 a.m.- 5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Saturday. Teams will be competing in alliances of three robots against another alliance of three robots attempting to pick up and pass 24-inch exercise balls down a 60-foot field and putting them into either a low goal or a high goal.

The event is free, and spectators are encouraged to watch the competition and tour the pit area. People who plan on touring the pit area must wear closed toe shoes for safety reasons. Look for Team 3038 at the event and cheer for your hometown team.
