Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

This regional ROCKED. It was veery intense and exciting. Congrats to the winning alliance and all other teams who participated and rocked the Los Angeles Regional. It was great being surrounded by so many spirited teams, incredible robots, and gracious professionalism.

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

The alliances were:

1. 330 1717 980
2. 1622 687 2486
3. 1197 1726 2102
4. 2637 1438 1702
5. 1160 399 842
6. 1515 599 238
7. 2659 294 702
8. 207 1538 589

Congratulations to 2659, 294, and 702. I can't believe that two of the best lap robots made it onto the same alliance and 294 was a steal.

Thanks to 1717 and 980 for the great run through the finals.

Congratulations to 399 for the chairman's award!

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

A big congratulations goes to 2659, Alemany HS. Denying to another alliance and then leading their own alliance, quite a feat for a rookie team.

Volunteering was pretty epic. Congratulations to all teams and a big thanks to Jim Beck for directing another great regional.

Agree on all 3 counts. I'm so proud of 2659 and how much they've grown in the past few months. LA was once again an amazing even, and I'm sad that it might be my last time going to it. (college etc..) Great job!

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

Congrats to the unstoppable D'Thunderbeach alliance!

Props to 2659-294-702 and 1515-599-238 for being our opponents during elims, too... all six of you played an incredible game, and 399 for winning Chairman's twice in a row in LA.

edit: (oh, and thanks to Team Paradox and the N.E.R.D.S. for being awesome and cooperative alliance partners.)

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

294 had a great time. We had originally been looking at the regional as extended hurdling practice. We never thought we'd make it to the finals again.

Staring down the field at 330 and 1717 sitting right next to each other was unnerving to say the least. And the 980 smilie made it all the more intense. We were just happy to finish up with a score that was more than half of their's....

All in all, we're pretty happy that the Beach Bots will be joining us in Atlanta along with our San Diego alliance members 1717 and 968. Hopefully we can bring a strong West Coast showing to Nats.

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

As a freshman in college having participated on the team last year, it was great to see the team win at LA (didn't actually see it in SD). It was a blast to feel all the excitement again.

Ditched class on friday (one of them my math class ) to catch the early flight to be at the competition on friday and saturday. So much fun as always, it was well worth it.

Congrats to 2659 294 and 702. (especially 294...it was wonderful to see you again, we worked so closely together last year, and I was thrilled to see that we had teamed up in SD)

Thanks to our wonderful alliance members, 330 and 980. It was wonderful to work together.

More congratulations to 339 on the Chairman's Award

Also it was great to cheer with everyone (primarily 339 and 1515).

Can't wait for next years challenge!!!!

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

Congrats to all the teams that participated, especially the winners of the final round: 330, 1717, and 980!

I just wanted to thank everyone for making our team's first regional of 2008 absolutely amazing! We met so many great people from other teams and just had an absolute blast! We weren't entirely satisfied with our own robot's performance but we are going to make some adjustments at the Las Vegas regional and try again. Our team hopes to see some of you there (although I personally have a timing conflict and will not be able to attend).

I was seriously impressed by the spirit of all the teams and congrats 399 for winning the Chairmen's award!

Re: 2008 Los Angeles Regional

Awesome regional, seemingly unstoppable number one alliance - I believe they scored over 100 points in every match they played. Should make for a good west coast showing in Atlanta.

Thanks to 1160 for choosing us in the eliminations, and for 842 (The girl side of their team!) for playing with us.


Can't wait for next year. And more importantly Atlanta this year!
