Thank you for your very kind words.
We hold tremendous respect for 2016. You guys rock! Your robot is consistently top of class.

I would like to congratulate 341 again, they have built a world class robot this year. Their partners 25 and 1640 were no slouches in their respective rights, each deserving the championship they earned. Each of them brought a great set of strengths. Congrats on the first MAR championship.
I would like to thank 1218 for picking us, our whole team turned around to see who was shouting our number because we thought it was our kids for a second. We really were very surprised, when we didnt get picked in the first round but I think we as a team know and understand why, the robot really did not perform to the levels its expected to in quals, fortunately we got that fixed in elims I think. I dont think we could have asked for better partners than 1218 and 2180 to put us in the finals. The three robots really gave us a huge advantage of having 3 really solid scorers.
I would like to make a special mention to team 3929 for putting together a great team and they are definitely no rookies to be passed up as such, I was extremely happy to see them qualify for nationals with RAS.
Congrats to all the other award winners and point qualifiers, I look forward to seeing many of the teams in St.Louis.
See you all in another week.
