Re: Registration 2010

It's good to see despite a seeming overabundance of teams last year in MN (60), only 5 have folded. That's a good retention rate, seems MN's creating fairly sustainable teams.

Re: Registration 2010

A second team from Turkey registered today.
Team 3390 is from Ankara.

The missing Israeli teams dropped to 8.

Over the next week I expect the total count will rise above 1800, then fall back below it again continuing to retract over the next month or two as FIRST works with teams to get them on-board. It'll probably end up somewhere around 1780 teams for a net gain of a little more than 100 over last year.

Over the weekend FIRST added about 5 new team 0's, before the staff came back from the US Thanksgiving holiday and fixed those.

I count 4 Michigan teams that are also attending regionals out-of-state- 49, 217, 288, 815.

P.S. 4 more new Michigan teams have joined us.

You missed at least 1. 216 is registered for Wisconsin along with 288.

Re: Registration 2010

Sorry, about that.
I'm serving on jury duty for several weeks and I've been out of touch and a little rushed.

Doesn't seem to be any movement yet on the Michigan 3rd district signups.
At least no more teams have been added to the event team lists.

Registration has coasted up to 1808 right now.

FIRST noticed that fake team 156 and removed it, so the Championship list now reflects the actual 166 teams signed up, and BAE dropped by 1 when they lost that fake team.

Re: Registration 2010

Up to 1817 now.
We are missing the same number of veteran teams that we lost last year (163), which actually puts the retention rate up ~1% over last season.

1514 teams have returned from last year. Right now retention, at 91.7% (adjusted to include 24 returnees), is the second best it has been in the history of FRC. Only 2003 had a higher retention rate (92%).

There are 279 new teams (including 51).

There are three teams from Turkey now: 2905 and rookies 3390 & 3406.

Looks like a bunch of events moved teams off their wait lists too.

Re: Registration 2010

Thats great! Even through a recession we can retain teams at a high rate! It shows that maybe people are starting to get that we need Science and Technology education even more than before.

Re: Registration 2010

Minnesota's numbers have officially blown up in the past few years, they went from just a handful to over 100 (4th largest state IIRC) in 3 years.

Great to see we will have 125 teams converging on the U this year.

Re: Registration 2010

26 events updated their attendance lists today, pulling teams off the wait lists.
St. Louis dropped their open capacity to the current 35 teams. They still had almost 20 additional slots advertised before that.
Israel has almost filled up with only 4 open slots showing.
A smattering of other events show one or two open spaces.

No change in the Michigan lists reflecting any team 3rd events yet.
They did add one more team though for 138.

1824 teams showing.
If it follows past history the overall team list could continue climbing for a couple of more days until the fallout from teams not able to raise last minute funds start to decimate a handful of hopefuls.
  • 279 new teams
  • 1520 returnees
  • 25 resurrected vets
  • 157 teams missing
  • 8.8% net growth as it currently stands
  • 8% team loss
New teams include: 51, 78, 1749, 1754, 2000, 2704, 2949, and numbers 3123 and higher.

Resurrected vets include: 751, 814, 1015, 1056, 1065, 1221, 1372, 1457, 1610, 1695, 1863, 1949, 1951, 2049, 2203, 2213, 2232, 2566, 2598, 3135, 3146(last played 13 years ago before team numbers were assigned), 3165, 3171, 3200, 3332.
Some of these teams have chosen to take new numbers.

Re: Registration 2010

I'm back from several weeks of jury duty and can now return to this...

Registration reached a peak of 1826 teams 9 days after registration officially closed and is now gradually being whittled down as teams drop out due to lack of funds/students/mentors/administration support. A few new teams add-in regularly too.

It's drifted down to 1815 currently and will probably drift gradually lower all the way up to regionals. It bobs up and down one or two every day. (It's bobbing today everytime I go look: 1816, 1815, 1817, 1820,...)
A lot more is happening that the total reflects. For instance, on Monday the team total dropped from 1822 teams down to 1816. What happened was 6 new or returning teams added in, while 12 registered teams dropped out, so there was actually an 18 team turnover - pretty volatile.

It's sad when teams pay the fee and get the KOP only to fail to field a robot after all, through lack of mentors, students, or just enthusiasm and the required basic drive to get things done. We had a team from NYC that always comes to the LI Regional and last year while they were registered, they never showed up. They're registered to play again this year, so I'm hoping for the best.
