Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Championship Registration to Open to Tier 2 Teams!

So does this mean there is still a lottery for Tier 2 teams or are we back to first come first served. Hmmmm??

Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Championship Registration to Open to Tier 2 Teams!

From the FIRST website on Championship Elgibility:

Quote:
A selected number of Championship slots will be available for open registration. The slots will be based on the number of years since a team last attended the Championship. All teams will be classified in a Tier, i.e. Tier 6 equals six years since attending a Championship; Tier 2 equals two years since attending. Teams never attending will have their tier based on their rookie year: 2004 rookies are tier 2, 2003 rookies are tier 3, etc. If the number of teams in a tier is greater than the number of available openings, FIRST will use a lottery system to determine team eligibility for remaining open slots. The final determination will be first come/first serve until all available openings are filled. A wait list will be maintained for any openings that become available during the season.
Since there are more teams in tier 2 than openings, I would assume a lottery will take place, or they might go first come first serve. The only lottery last year I believe was for Tier 1.

FIRST actually held a lottery last year for Tier 2 also, but due to low registration opened it up to all Tier 2 teams before eventually holding the Tier 1 lottery.

Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Championship Registration to Open to Tier 2 Teams!

According to http://www.usfirst.org/frc/map/FMPro...-max=all&-find, there are two rookie teams registered for the championship. Don't rookies have to qualify by way of performance at a 2005 regional?

~Allison

Edit - Must have been a mistake because they're not on the list anymore. Looks like a few other teams changed their mind and/or mistakenly registered because this morning there were 93 teams registered and now there's only 83.

Yeah I wondered about that. I know nothing about 1503, but one of the leaders from 1506 has posted here a few times about being a rookie team. Although it does say on their website that some of the students are from schools that already have a team.

Re: **FIRST EMAIL**/Championship Registration to Open to Tier 2 Teams!

1503 is a rookie team. We signed up for the finals not knowing about qualifying first back in September. We found this info out from 1114 - Simbotics our partner team when they stepped in to start mentoring us.
