Greetings 2017 FIRST® Championship Teams: 
 
We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the FIRST Championship in Houston next week! As your team plans its departure, please make note of the following information: 
 
**IMPORTANT**Attendee Registration: Make sure to pre-register your team members now, so that you won’t have to wait on site. All attendees must be badged for the FIRST Championship. Pre-registration makes the check-in and badging process easier for you and shortens your wait time in line. A shorter wait time means more time for your team to enjoy the event! Attendee registration will remain open through the week of the event. 
 
Attendee registration can be completed at the following link: https://registration.experientevent.com/showrob173/flow/team
