Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

I'd like to get my team involved in any activities, too. (This is the only competition we'll be attending, so I want to make it the best possible!)

Who's staying where? 814 will be staying at the University Park Inn and Suites...

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

I will now be going to Sacramento again, instead of BAE

I'm either staying on campus at Davis with a friend, or with 100 at the Holiday Inn

According to the FIRST team list, almost 25% of the regional is from out of state. Now THAT's cool!

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

also cant wait for sacramento. Going to both sacramento and svr, i like the atmosphere at sacramento more because its smaller. Cant wait to see all you guys (especially 1097, you guys are so fun). And be prepared, our t-shirts are most likely going ot be "artic blue" instead of more boring gray this year. .

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

I guess its time for team 610 to say Hello. We're your international flavour for the tournament. Can't wait.

Is there anything around UC Davis that you would recommend us do?

Make sure you hit up a Krispy Kreme/In-N-Out Burger at least once. More than once wouldn't hurt either

There isn't much to do in Davis, it is the epitome of a college town. The entire city revolves around the school and there really isn't much else.

However if you want to go into Sacramento you can see a lot more. There's the capitol, a train museum, and a whole lot of other stuff.

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

Yes, for all 9 teams who are coming from out of state: definitely go to In-N-Out Burger!!! I'd recommend getting some authentic mexican food as well (and I'm not talking about Taco Bell.) Any restaurant with "taqueria" or "cantina" in the name is probably a best bet...

There's also "Old Sacramento" if you really want to be touristy. There's a museum and a segment of the town that's all old-enized...

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

Just wanted to give a shout out from team 114. This will be our thid year attending Sac. One of the memories I have from Sac is from last year. The Bears, other wise known as the Bad News Bears, were unaware that there was a ship deadline and thought you just brought your robot to the regional. They found out about the ship deadline days before shipping, and were forced too send off just a drive train. Being in the pit next to them at Sac, we were able to help them out as they designed, built and programmed a robot that was a sufficient ball herder. If I remember right they seeded eighth or nineth.

114 was going to be staying at a hotel right next to UC Davis. But the hotel overbooked so ourselves and two team from Michigan got moved to a hotel about 15 minutes away. O well, it's no biggie. I am actually looking forward to talking with those Michigan teams.

Michael C.

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

I just checked the agenda for the regional, and it says there is a team social from 6:30 PM-10:00 PM Friday night.

Does anyone know if this is true? Or was the standard FIRST event agenda used?

You kinda get out of the loop when you're 3000 miles away

Thanks guys.

Re: 2005 Sacramento/UC Davis Regional

Maybe it's that HALO 2 Tournament! Regardless, team 100 is going to go, and we're bringing two Xbox's with two copes of HALO 2, just for practice =). If you're staying at the Holiday Inn, maybe you can stop by and run through a few rounds.
