June 2 is the first day of URC 2011! There are two important pieces of information for teams.
The orientation meeting at the beginning of URC will take place at 11:00am on June 2 in the parking lot of the Whispering Sands Motel in Hanksville (Google Maps Street View of Whispering Sands). Kevin Sloan will be there in a U-haul truck (which should be easy to spot). There will be a short briefing to everybody there before we drive out to the MDRS Hab in one large caravan. Due to safety concerns, all teams are required to drive to MDRS with the group this first time. After a short tour and introduction at MDRS, teams will have time available to work on their rovers, and prepare for weigh-ins and the presentation task (which will take place that afternoon).
Per Section 3.h of the URC Rules, teams are hereby notified that they shall have 15 minutes for their presentations, which will take place on the afternoon of June 2. Teams shall use their own computer equipment for the Presentation Task; however a projector will be provided (teams are not required to use this).
