Bag and Tag / Stop Build Day to End in 2020

FIRST just announced on TWITCH that Bag and Tag (and Stop Build Day) will end with the 2019-20 season (next year).

They do not have all the answers yet (watch the video on twitch), but they wanted teams to know that it was coming.

Main reason is that FIRST feels that teams with fewer resources were not able to build a practice bot, while those with resources could…giving them a huge advantage (50% of teams build a 2nd bot).

Secondary concerns were weather closures at schools, religious holidays etc.
