URC2016 Schedule

The High Level Schedule for URC is below.

The full URC Schedule has been released!  This includes the team assignments for the Semi-Finals, as well as the structure for the Ares and Phobos Finals.  (A version with only the Semi-Finals schedule is also available.)
- Please pay attention to the authorized sub-bands for 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz communications, which are based on your station number.
- The detailed schedule for the Ares Finals and Phobos Finals will be based on teams' placement in the Semi-Finals.  The overall structure of the schedule will be posted soon!

*Note: Teams must check in either Wednesday or Thursday.  Teams are also required to have at least one driver participate in a driving tour of the route to MDRS.  This will be a guided caravan for teams to learn the route, which can be challenging.
