Preference is given to Maryland and DC teams, particularly those that do not yet have an event assignment. Maryland or DC FTC teams that have not yet registered or need to change assignments can contact mkaurich at usra dot edu. Teams can request a change/drop of event up to two weeks before the event. After that period, it is up to the partner's discression to place the team into another tournament.
Maryland and DC teams are charged a "program fee" instead of an indivudal qualifier fees. With the program fee, teams can sign up for two events. For the 2017-18 season the program fee is $300. We send invoices and payment instructions directly to team leaders. There is a $300 registration fee for teams that qualify for the Maryland FTC Championship, invoiced separately. Out of region teams that wish to compete are charged a $200 event fee.
