Doing the Right Thing

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.

Wild Cards 2013 and the Harlem Shake

Hello Teams,

I hope everyone caught up on some sleep over the weekend.  Only a few more days until our first official events of the season, and as we say up here, I am ‘wicked’ excited!

Hey, remember Wild Cards?  I talked about them in the FRC Blog way back in September.  Teams can earn Wild Card Slots as described on the Championship Eligibility page.

Week 0 Observations and Stop Build Day

On Saturday, February 16th, FRC staff supported two ‘Week 0’ scrimmages, one in Connecticut and one in New Hampshire.  These events were run with official fields and electronics that will be put on the road during competition season.  FRC supports these events so we can test out our systems and see how the game plays with real FRC Teams.  We carefully review what we see at these events, and work to improve our systems, and if necessary, the game, in preparation for competition.

Here’s what we learned about which we thought you’d like to hear:
