2020 Greater Pittsburgh Regional – Cancelled

Greater Pittsburgh Regional – Cancelled

Message from the Regional Director:

Dear FIRST Robotics Competition Teams of the Greater Pittsburgh Regional, 

 

I am writing to share the hugely disappointing news that as a result of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and at the direction of our host, California University of Pennsylvania, the Greater Pittsburgh Regional on March 18-21 has been postponed out of an abundance of caution, and with the health and safety of our community in mind. The new dates for the Greater Pittsburgh Regional has not yet been set. 

 

We recognize that teams have put an enormous amount of work into preparing for this event and we regret having to share such disappointing news.  FIRST team support can help your team identify alternative events and can be reached at customerservice@firstinspires.org.  

 

This is difficult news for me to share.  I was looking forward to seeing you all, watching you compete and hearing your stories of challenges and success.  I know that you are frustrated. I know that you have questions.  This is a rapidly evolving situation and we are all doing our best to make decisions that are in everyone’s best interest both on and off the field of play.  I will keep you posted as I receive more information.

 

Keep building. Keep learning. Keep meeting. Keep inspiring. 

Regards,

Daphne
