FLL registration has closed 10 days early and Maine now sits with 74 teams for the FIRST Lego League. Up from last year,but not as much as we were expecting. We were originally expecting 80+ teams for this year. If registration had stayed open for another week we probably would met that number, but alas we did not.
Since we do not have the number of teams we originally expected, our planning committee discussed the issue and decided that we do not have enough to run regionals this year. What that means is that all teams will be going directly to the Maine FIRST LEGO League Championship on December 14th, 2013 at the Augusta Civic Center.
Cost for the Championship is still $150/team
Registration should be up on our web by the end of next week.
Good luck to Maine teams and we will see you in three months.
