I was just checking STL out.

Looks like 71 is leading the pack (3-0).

Re: 2006 St. Louis Regional

Hummmmmm. Update from St. Louis:

There is a small handful of teams that can actually shoot. I can count them on one hand.

On my other hand and and one foot I can count the teams that are designed for the 1 point goals and can do it well.

The rest of the robot are running around playing defence by getting in other people's way.

Auto Modes are improving as people are getting more practice.

Field situation. They are staying right on time. There was a couple times they had to reset the field because of field malfunction but it seems a lot less then VCU. (including the timer hitting the go button or something and a robot almost running over the Announcer that was standing there)

This is a easy competition for the field to get behind schedule but when they do they are making up for taking shorter time announcing the teams for the next match.

I don't have pix of the Beast. I did have the honor of inspecting 71's robot at St. Louis, and later of watching them in the tournament from field-side. A powerful swerve-drive chassis, good ball sweeping and HP loading capability, and an accurate high shooter. In the semis (against an alliance that included my team) they racked up 7 or 8 three-pointers in autonomous and went on to trounce us.

From the inspector's point of view, the Beast is an impressive creature this year. Very solid, very effective. And although the team kept adding parts all day on Thursday (and were therefore one of the last to complete inspection) the robot never seemed to gain any weight!

Congratulations to 547, 71, and 537 for a well earned regional victory and to 71 for the regional Chairman's award. We'd love to see you back in St. Louis any time.

Re: 2006 St. Louis Regional

Congratulations also to finalists 1288, 16, 1873. 1288 Francis Howell Schools is one of our local favorites: they were the second highest seeded local team at St. Louis this year, and won both the Website Award and a Judges' Award. The Bomb Squad displayed their usual exemplary GP in ways too numerous to list here, and were awesome competitors as well. 1873 was especially impressive on both ends of the field; many of us enjoyed watching the rookies go after the Beast and accomplish what few other teams could -- slowing them down for a while!

Congrats also to 1444 Lutheran South for another strong competitive showing as #3 seed and semifinalist, the highest among local teams in our region, and on the Sportsmanship Award. And thanks especially for picking my team as a tournament alliance partner!

And special congratulations to Mr. Frank Dressel, founding teacher-coach of team 931 Perpetual Chaos, and the 2006 St. Louis Regional Woody Flowers Award finalist.

I'd also like to tell everyone on CD that I am very proud of my team, 931, winners of the 2006 St. Louis Regional Engineering Inspiration Award!

Re: 2006 St. Louis Regional

Yup, St. Louis regionals were definatly intense. What ever happened to 1625 (Winnovation) I thought that thing was for sure going to win. I guess those new strategies worked out. Congrats guys!

Im still trying to remember what 71 looked like. Those were some tough teams. And just watch out for 1706 next year. Our first two years wern't too good... but just wait hehe.

Re: 2006 St. Louis Regional

I can't believe it's Sunday night and there aren't any pictures of 71 yet.

Does anybody have them? I can't sleep!

Maybe it's better off that way, I have a bunch of tests to study for.

Suspense for pictures of Beatty are a good study aid.
