There are plenty of teams already registered for the Championship that are competing at the MAR CMP - 222, 341 (HOF), 365 (HOF), 714, 816 , 1403, 1647, 2590 (Winner MTL), 3142.

All of those teams have earned a spot at the MAR Championship and have a right to play should they chose to. It's not about a Championship spot for many teams but just continuing to see returns on a season's worth of hard work.

Seriously? You're questioning why a team wants to play in their region's championship event? This is a competition you know.

357 is looking forward to playing with all of the great teams from the MAR district events, especially some of the NJ teams we haven't seen yet. We will not be attending the Championship event, so this is it for us this year. Good luck to all the teams competing!

Sorry to see you guys won't make it to Champs. You were a great team to play with, and ultimately compete against in DC. Best of luck at MAR!

Re: 2012 Mid-Atlantic Robotics FRC Region Championship

I wouldn't call it much of a championship if all the pre-qualifying and pre-registered CMP teams were not in attendance. Everyone wants the glory of victory from playing with and against teams like 365 and 341.

I totally agree, going up against the best of the best is kind of the point of a championship. That makes a winning competition that much more of a success! Also, on the other side, its awesome to have the opportunity to work with such high caliber teams!

Re: 2012 Mid-Atlantic Robotics FRC Region Championship

Even though 222 was already attending Championships in St. Louis we decided to attend the MAR Championship for several reasons.

#1 We earned the spot
#2 Extra experience for the team.
#3 The kids worked hard to get here.
#4 We we able to acquire the funding from various sources...
#5 We have a few tricks up our sleeves which need to be competition tested...

See you Thursday. Were leaving at 4am.

Perhaps the MAR group should look towards giving a free registration to the MAR Championship to the winners of the Qualifier tournaments. That way there is little excuse for the best of the qualifiers not attending.

I may be wrong but in HS athletics the winners of the sectional tournaments don't need to come up with additional money to play in the state championship. If we really want to put FIRST in every school like an athletic team this additional need for money needs to be addressed

Would you propose that teams already qualified for championships forgo all of their events except championships to give other teams a better chance of qualifying because IMO you are asking the same thing by suggesting teams qualified for championships not attend MAR championships.

Agreed and while these are all valid reasons for competing at MAR championships I think the reasons for teams already qualified for worlds competing go beyond the personal interests of the team. FIRST is about inspiring other people in and out of FIRST and recognizing and celebrating amazing robots and I think all teams do this especially successful teams like chairmanís award winners and perennial powerhouses. I also think that it is important to make MAR championships as competitive as possible with the hope of inspiring people to start more teams and bring a stronger culture of FIRST to our region. Look at Michigan, the most successful region in FIRST with the most competitive event aside from championships every year in MSC. Furthermore Michigan has had significant growth since going with a district system and some teams that don't even qualify for MSC are still involved with the championship event in some manner. If teams already qualified for championships did not go to MAR championships the quality of the competition would go down and the competition might not attract as much attention. (I'm guessing on these next statements) I think that having experienced and successful teams at competitions gives younger and less successful teams a benchmark to strive for and inspires them rather than suppress them and not having MAR's three CCA's at MAR championships would be a real detriment to the whole event. For these reasons I was personally disappointed when 103 decided not to attend MAR championships although I understand and respect their decision. I wish them the best of luck and hope to see them at championships because they have an amazing robot and I was looking forward to playing with and against them again.

Also I'm excited to see what improvements you have made to an already amazing robot, 222 will certainly be a force at MAR championships.

Well put Carol, I never really thought of it that way. Now that we have seen the district model play out, almost fully, we will be assessing every aspect for next year!

With the qualification matches on Thursday, my question is will judges be making official rounds/interviews at all on Thursday?
