Re: MARC 2012

I expect 1732 to attend again this year.

I encourged every team within several hours from Monroe to attend. We've attended MARC 4 of the 5 years since the first year in 2007 and have had an amazing time each year. Its a great relaxed event to try out new drivers or practice for IRI.

Re: MARC 2012

I'm trying to convince my guys we should get our butts kicked in Michigan on my birthday.

Here's hoping registration won't lockout until next week.

Re: MARC 2012

As one of the original 12, I am sure 910 will be coming again as well. It has been fantastic to see how the event is grown over the years, from only the 12 of us in 2007 to people fighting to get into the 42 slots now Steve and his whole crew do such a great job and it just gets better every year. I encourage teams from outside MI to apply, since with the district system we don't get to make many outside friends.

Re: MARC 2012

M.A.R.C. is a really fun event to attend and I give all the credit to the amazing volunteers that have helped me throughout the years for making it such a success. I enjoy seeing new teams come every year and I have pushed a couple of out-of-state favorites to attend this year. I am not giving team names but hopefully they will be able to make it. They will make our event even more enjoyable by giving our Michigan teams the oppertunity to compete with and against them.

Come on guys, I know you can convince your teams to travel here.

Re: MARC 2012

1718 once again plans to be there...we've attended every year except for the first year. We always have a great time at this event. Plus, we have a mentor title to defend...please tell me there will be a mentor tournament again.

Re: MARC 2012

Mentor matches have been way to long in the past. We are looking into ways of making them shorter. Also, I don't know how teams will feel about their mentors driving over the bridges and breaking their robots. Please voice your opinions on this topic.

I can't remember how mentor matches have been done in the past, was it single match elimination? If not, then that would be a good way to cut down on time.
