This is going to be intense, and amazing. Good luck to all teams! I know we've been working hard in the past few weeks since LA!

Re: Central Valley Regnional

Team 1671 just finished testing the final modification of adding another camera onto the practice bot. Our drivers were not there yesterday at the shop (catching up on some school work I presume) so to make sure that the camera system worked we had two students who have never driven the bot before just grab the controls show them the buttons and let them drive. To make things even harder we had them drive from the side of the field so there was no way to tell that they were lined up except by using the camera systems. The results were incredible! They rarely missed a shot and when they did it was usually with a ball that had a deep gash in it (from earlier in the season).

Check out the video

Re: Central Valley Regnional

Does anyone know if there will be a live stream of CV? We have a lot of fans back home who want to keep up with the matches! And unfortunately one of our head mentors cannot attend so it would be great if he can see it.

Last I heard, Ken Mitchell and Jim Beck said that 1266 was going to do it. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Central Valley Regnional

Did anyone catch why 254 was bypassed in match 2?

Failure to connect to the field is what I heard on the cast.

No, their Ball pick-up/bridge manipulator would not stay up. They were outside the frame perimeter at the beginning of the match.

No air pressure?

63 points in penalties in Match 31. What did the blue alliance do to incur so many penalty points?

It looked like 3794 kept touching the opposing bridge, costing them the game.

Yup. They continuously raised and lowered their bridge manipulator, almost like they were trying and failing to tip the red bridge. Feel sorry for 1717, who played a great match, just not enough to overcome 63 penalty points.

Not having seen the match, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt and call it a mistake.

That should be a DQ, not just a disable, right? Did they change something (I read they did somewhere else) and, if so, was it inspected?

Nope, just a disable. [G01].

I'm pretty sure they'd have gotten inspected--failure to do so would give you and your entire alliance a red card if you made it to the field. [T03].
