Over the weekend I attended the Central Washington Regional at Central Washington University in Ellensburg. My experience up until the final round was wonderful. Folks were having fun, the volunteers were great, matches for the most part were running smoothly, I saw some terrific robots, and, I think, I made some new friends. Things did not go as expected in the final round, though, and it caused some significant pain for many present. I’d like to talk about this.
