I'm glad I'm not in the position of choosing which teams to invite.

Anyway, my prediction (or teams I would like to see win) is 111-68-469-910.
We are also dissapointed we didn't make the cut after a great performance at North Star, even though it wasn't one of the tougher regionals. Good luck to all the teams! (especially 2970 and 79, great job in MN!)

Re: 2009 IRI- Who has applied?

I was pretty shocked at 1816's missing of the cut as well. You guys, along with Krunch and eBots were among the best at Northstar.

Cool Re: 2009 IRI- Who has applied?

I see you guys making out all these alliance predictions and i find myself wondering why you left team 79 out of the elimination teams. I would find it strange indeed if they weren't chosen at IRI. Team 2970 is really looking forward to IRI. This should be one heck of a competition!!!

Look at the team list again please. IRI is one place where extremely competent teams get left out. That's the way this field works. Either you fit into a strategy or you don't. There's also plenty of teams who applied and didn't get in when they could be argued to replace some on the list. Its just tough.

By the way, I so wish 968 could've applied and gone

Re: 2009 IRI- Who has applied?

I think if you were to put a pin in the map for each of the teams that have been listed, you would allow yourself to see a broader view. If you step back away from the actual robot competition possibilities and look at some of these teams such as the Hall of Fame teams that have been extended invitations, you will see a broader picture still. If you look at some of the mentors that support and have continued to support these teams, you have an increasingly broader picture. I'm sure if you could read the essay submissions, they would offer insight to the growth and development of each of these teams, casting a brighter light and illuminating the solid opportunities that await everyone who participates, who watches, and who learns from the IRI 2009 event.

The event planners go to great lengths to provide a well-rounded event, including the opportunities for the newly forming teams. They also value and support the very real importance of giving back, of charity, of doing what you can to improve circumstances.

Making predictions is a great deal of fun and I'm sure teams are over the moon with that aspect of the IRI event, but there is so much more to this competition. I think it was planned to be that way. I also think it was very very difficult for the selection committee to make the final cuts, leaving teams off. These folks have bigger hearts than most. I think they grow them that way in Indiana.

Just an .02.

Re: 2009 IRI- Who has applied?

Assuming that a team has accepted the invitation on time to be in the first 72 teams completing the process, when would you be notiifed that you are officially on the list?
I saw from the registration info that the acceptance phase ends on May 22nd and that the list is frozen in July, but it does not say when you will be notified of your final status.

I just don't want to tell the kids we are in and then be wrong.

Thanks in advance to anyone answering this question.

Re: 2009 IRI- Who has applied?

Man, I was going to wait until our team meeting tonight to get the information to fill out the acceptance form, but I'm super nervous that by waiting 18 hours all of the spots will be taken . What's a troubled IRI rookie to do?

The thing that really matters is when your check gets in. Accepting the form right now doesn't get you into the top 72-it's only half the equation.
