This is the address of the middle school: 18654 Mentmore Drive, Land O Lakes. The school is located right off the Suncoast Parkway and SR 54 in Pasco County. It is a great venue for a qualifying tournament. Team pit areas and the tournament area are both centrally located in the large student cafeteria. There is plenty of seating for teams and spectators. We have a gotten a lot of interest in the tournament because of the article in the Tampa Times, with the question, “What can I see, if I come to the Tournament?” The portion of the Tournament open to the public is the Robot Table Runs of all 16 teams, which will go on, between 9:00 – 2:00pm. You may also walk around the Pit Area and see teams practicing and working on their robot or getting ready for Judging. The Judging Portion of the Tournament is not open to the Public.
For Teams: There will NOT be on site concessions available. Please make arrangements to pack a team lunch or order through Publix. Nearby, there is also Beef O Brady’s if you wanted to pre-arrange a group order and arrange pick up. For parents, there is a Starbucks Coffee 1 mile north on SR 54 in the Target Plaza.
We run a prompt tournament schedule to accommodate teams, or those parents dropping-off or participating in carpools:
Registration opens at 7:30am
- Coaches Meeting will be at 8:30am
- Opening Announcements: 8:45am
- Tables Rounds/Judging: 9:00am
- Awards 3:00pm
