Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

I'm so excited for this year, Solano County has got 4 teams repping it with 701, 2085, 3013 and 4185.

Some more teams im excited to see compete:
692 The Fembots: Always fun to be at their scrimmage and see them at this regional, one of the friendliest teams
971 Spartan Robotics: world champions not too long ago, be afraid...
100 Wildhats: We at team 701 consider team 100 one of our bigger rivals and welcome any opportunity to compete against a strong robot.
115 MVRT: Routinely does well at this competition
1678 Citrus Circuits: Always find some way to impress me each year
604 Quixilver: I never remember their team number but they always build a great robot and get lots of awards
1351 TKO: hosted a great Cal Games one year and always a competitive bot

The Solano Alliance:
701 RoboVikes: I feel like we've been a pretty strong team the last few years and with how much work went into this year's robots we may finally be able to make that leap and win a regional.
2085 RoboDogs: Consistently strong bot, finalists last year.
3013 Zombots: Great robot, and when i played with them unstoppable on defense, shut down the Penguineers in 2009
4185 Fantastic Falcons: New team who 701 has lent a little help, can't wait to see what they do at their first competition.

Sorry for any teams i don't know, This competition is always great but my memory isn't the sharpest when it comes to remembering the teams.
I'm excited guys let's make this a great one!!!

Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

SAC is gonna be so awesome this year! I wish we could make it, but 256 will be rocking SVR and CVR. Maybe next year.

Good luck to all the teams! Let's hope for another great year!

Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

1671 can't wait to attend the sacramento regional and see the other teams from the central valley compete. It's always been a great regional.

Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

Ah Yes Madtown, the regional chairmans winners in 2009. Nevermind the fact that they always compete well and end up high in our scouting system. Can't believe i overlooked them. Same with the bird brains, correct me if im wrong but they had an interesting robot last year and always seem to put together an impressive animation.

Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

I think what will be interesting this year is Sacramento is mostly a defensive competition, and it's very difficult this year to play defense. I think this year SAC may have outcomes that no one will expect...

SAC usually is a defensive regional, however a lot of powerhouse teams from SVR will be going this year. The team im looking out for is 971. I have a feeling the defensive SAC veterans won't stand a chance against the unmatched power of NorCal.

Well true, but a lot of defensive teams have switched to offense this year. It will just be a whole new ball game this year.

Lol. It is, as you say, a whole new ball game this year. I've never quite seen a ball game like Rebound Rumble (Aim high is close, but never scoring in horizontal hoops).

And you bring up another interesting point; The teams who normally play defense will be playing offense this year, some of them for their first time. Will the new offensive teams be able to keep up with the veteran offensive teams?

Only time will tell. 4 days until SAC. You ready?

Re: Sacramento Regional 2012

Sacramento isn't a "defensive" regional as much as it is a "can't-play-offense-ive" regional. The average scores over the years speak for themselves, it's not like all those teams go into the competition intending to play defense. I expect a few teams to do well, but scores will be below average compared to other regionals.
