Mission manuals have been posted for each competition class at this regional and can be found here: SCOUT, NAVIGATOR and RANGER

Review the mission requirements for each competition class to determine best placement for your team. Keep in mind that only RANGER or EXPLORER class winning team(s) will move on to the International MATE Competition. This regional will send one RANGER team with the overall highest score to Internationals if we have at least 5 registered teams in that class. We can send an additional second-place team to Internationals with 11 or more registered teams in RANGER class.

The Gray's Reef SoutheastĀ MATEĀ ROV Competition will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at the Chatham County Aquatic Center (7240 Sallie Mood Drive Savannah, GA 31406).

Teams opting to use hydraulics or pneumatics must pass a safety exam prior to being allowed those items on the pool deck. This exam will close on March 16, 2018.

Good luck!
