11/18-Detroit FTC Qualifier
Detroit Cristo Rey High School
Event capacity: 32

2nd event placement prioritization:
  • Available spots at the event; assignment is made until an event's capacity is reached.
  • Date/timestamp of 2nd Event Form submission
  • Date/timestamp of team's season registration per the FIRST FTC Team Registration System.Teams registered by this date were guaranteed that there would be a 2nd qualifier spot factored in for them. Note that this did not guarantee placement at a particular event.
  • Team provides a full ranking of preferred event choices. Limiting the number of ranked event choices on the form could result in a team not being placed in a 2nd qualifier event due to the team's preferred event(s) having already reaching capacity.
  • There is no guarantee of a team's placement at a particular event nor availability of a spot at a team's preferred event(s).
Events with number of available spots: This list can be found on the MI Event Process doc linked below.

Please refer to the 2017-2018 MI FTC Event Process for details on the event registration process and for a preliminary allocation of advancement spots per event. Note that pre-Thanksgiving events provide more advancement spots than post-Thanksgiving events. Advancement allocations are made this way because events occurring later in the event cycle include teams that have earned advancement spots at earlier competitions and also to incentivize earlier events. A team already registered for a post-Thanksgiving is encouraged to choose a pre-Thanksgiving event.

Key Dates:
October 19 - Any remaining event spots will be opened up for 3rd event registration.
