Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Team 2068! By far one of the best scoring robots at both the DC and VCU regionals.

Team 834, how the ended up as the third pick in New Jersey is beyond me but they were quick dumper with the ability to hold a massive amount of moonrocks.

Team 422, eaisly had the quickest pick up than any other robot at VCU. Their all or nothing dumper could put up some big scores but if it weren't for some timely misses 422 would be in Atlanta.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

I would have to say 694 is by far the best team not going. They were absolutely dominant during qualifications in NYC and again in CT. If it were not for some bad luck they would be poised to make a run in ATL

610.

and 968, 330.

You had to be at GTR to understand how close 188 and 610 came to taking down 2056 and 1114.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

330 & 968 obviously top my list. But there are two teams I saw up close in both Rochester and Toronto who definitely belong on this list.

1126 - It's going to be very weird to not have this two time Einstein team in attendance. Their robot was very competent this year and was coupled with some great strategy. They could have been a major player in Atlanta.

610 - One of the most underrated robots in FIRST this season. A power dumper with a huge capacity and great driving. Much like their 2007 season, it's a shame this great team won't be attending the Championship.

Other teams I didn't see in person, but definitely are up there include, 103, 69, 100, 910 and 694.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

I would probably say 103 and 694 are the best teams that are not going.

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

Definitely, 1241, 610, 330, and 968 are on my list. They were great teams, played excellent, and will be sad not to have them join us at Atlanta

They played great at GTR, FLR, and i really think they should be up with us at Atlanta. And there are many other teams i forgot to mention. See you guys next year!

Re: Best Teams Not In Atlanta 2009

From Michigan, one of the top teams that qualified was 910 and unfortunetly they are not able to go, I believe it's financial reasons. They are quite an excellent team and robot year after year. And I am said to see their season end early this year.

I think Wobot was good, but they didn't have enough funding to go to the Michigan State Competition.
