Veteran teams, once your team is ‘event ready,’ you can do your drive-base-or-voucher selection. A team is “event ready” if there are two Youth Protection Program screened mentors and no outstanding tasks on your dashboard. If you are not familiar with this concept or need a refresher, veteran teams can decide to not get the standard drive base in exchange for a $450 AndyMark voucher (available when other pre-Kickoff vouchers are released in November 2022). The drive base kit is designed to allow a team to execute basic elements of 2023 game play and can be assembled by a small team in about six hours or less. Important note: the default condition is for the drive base is to ship with each Kickoff Kit, so if you’re a rookie team or a veteran team that wants the drive base kit, there’s nothing for you to do. If you want the AndyMark voucher instead, you must make take this action by the deadline. Drive Base Opt Out closes on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at 12:00pm (noon) Eastern Time.
