Re: BattleCry@WPI 9

Can we expect another surprise marriage proposal at this year's Battlecry??

I think that totally made it worth going last year.
You never know what you will see at Battlecry!


I'm def. Looking Forward to attending again this year!

I'm sure people feel romantic but first the person they feel romantic with would have to be there. O and I might show up just for the fun of it.

Re: BattleCry@WPI 9

Wow! Only three weeks after the World Championship!

This means that I will get to go to Battlecry before leaving the East Coast for the summer. I approve!

Re: BattleCry@WPI 9

So let me guess there will be a robotic cake that rolls out to the field and out pops rock'em sock'em robots. Played to the tune of the Grady bunch theme song (sorry jess couldn't help myself).

1519 is very much looking forward to BattleCry this year. We'll definitely be there, although we haven't yet figured out what to do with our former dual-configuration robot.

Any thoughts yet on the planned BattleCry 9 Rule Changes for this year?

Or, for that matter, any other fun events planned? How about the most autonomous laps on an empty field in 60 seconds?

Re: BattleCry@WPI 9

I think Battlecry should make a special exception for 1519 and allow them to use their robot(s) as originally intended.

I can't speak for the BattleCry staff or what decisions they'll make, but in the past robot inspection at off-season events has been much more relaxed than at official competitions.

The surprise this year was that it's going to be in May instead of June.

And.. No. I'll have to pass.
I've done a lot of things because of FIRST, but a marriage in the immediate future isn't one of them... yet anyway.
But I will take a 1923 shirt to trade for a 237 one.
That's just as good as a yes right? lol
