Re: 2006 Waterloo Regional

Finals looks like its going to be the number 3 seed 188, 610 and 771 vs the number 1 seed 1114, 1503 and 1281.
Even though it looks like 1114, 1503 and 1281 are going to win yet another regional, I think 188, 610 and 771 are going to put up a fight and give them a run for their money

ehem.... out in the first round, got it a little wrong on the predictions there . I presume that you did not see us play with 188 and 771, true teamwork in action .

Here are the ones I remember that were announced today, please correct me if any are wrong:

AVA: 830
GM Industrial Design: 1901
Motorola Quality Award: 68
Johnson and Johnson Sportsmanship Award: 1189
Judge's Award (Day 2): 931..?
Rookie Inspiration: 1901
Rookie All-Star: 1846
Highest Rookie Seed: 1846
UL Industrial Safety: 772 congrats Leah (our safety captain)!
DaimlerChrysler Team Spirit: 1596
Engineering Inspiration: 1305
Chairman's Award: 1114

I had an amazing time the past couple days, I'm so proud of 772 for cheering all the way through... my voice is gone from cheering for like 4 or 5 different teams haha I had a blast!

I'm extremely proud of 771 also! Your robot's simple corner goal autonomous mode and effective defensive play has proven to be very reliable, and it definitely payed off! The first finals match you guys actually had the #1 alliance beaten until they got on the ramp from what I saw, and that was maybe the only time anyone came close to beating 1114. But yeah, excellent job girls!

1901... impressive job once again. You are definitely rising stars in the Canadian robotics scene. All of the students from 772 love your team! Go Ramrod!

As for 188.. we think you're great! Haha! Our teams have had quite a bit of interaction between being partners in Waterloo last year and going to all three regionals together this year, and I love seeing your team in action wherever we go. Thanks for bringing FIRST to the lives of all these Canadian teams. I'm not sure anyone noticed... but all six teams in the finals at the Waterloo regional were Canadian teams. You should all be proud!

1114 congrats on your Chairman's Award! Your team has always shined in the competition aspect of FIRST but this brings the team to another level. This is certainly turning out to be a year to remember for Simbotics! I think I smell a 4th gold medal for this team one week from today... watch out .

edit: I thought I'd add that the regional was EXTREMELY well-run. There were I think a total of two or three false starts in matches and that was it. Real-time scoring was generally very accurate. There were a couple of matches where the score went up to the 150s.. but if that was the case you might say that it wasn't a close match anyways .

Excellent job planning committee, referees, judges, and volunteers. This regional just keeps getting better. I am really looking forward to seeing 40 teams next year, that is a great size and it will raise the competition to a new level.

Re: 2006 Waterloo Regional

Hey All and All

GREAT JOB TODAY, I gotta tell ya Kayla, your auto is pretty cool....we couldn't catch up with you haha didn't want to increase the speed of the robot either, otherwise the plexi glass border would've been butchered by the time we were done. NOBODY gave up and thats the most important part! Win or not win we are all winners in a way. We got our robots built and working, we worked out our issues and techincal problems and we will ALL do better at Greater Toronto (to those who are going)

Cheers!

tired and exhausted 1281 driver

SEE YA AT GTR

Re: 2006 Waterloo Regional

I'll just post my lamo thread here...since there is already a thread on waterloo...DOH
my hands are shaking and my brain is dead

Day 1:

-unpacked our stuff/uncrated robot
- started adding new components to complete the robot
- realized we are overweight, for 4 hours dealed with that issue
- shooter did not function well
- did not get any practice matches
- ate some fattening waterloo pizza
-went home tired and ready to kill ourselves

Day 2:

-got the weight issue worked out
-replaced some parts
-first match the robot spun around in one spot snapping a chain
-second match it wouldn't drive, period....whatever you did on the joystick the robot did 5 seconds later
-Finally got the drive working and got some action on the field...
-shooter was still out of commission so we took some parts from it, parts which immobilized the turret etc.
-went to the social where I saw this girl from the Gearheads and I was like Didn't have the gut to talk to her..then realized they are from the US, anywhoo back on topic (P.S. i'd still like to talk to ya...although nobody here knows who im talking about)

Day 3:

-woke up with confidence, slept in actually, had no breakfast, no lunch, no dinner
-worked mad on the robot for out last 4 matches, shooter never worked
-we were very grateful and amazed that we were picked for the LAST Alliance because of our defense capabilities (at least something was working good!)
- replaced our shooter with a 35lb weight from the Waterloo weightroom lol, secured that with some 80/20 and that worked out well
- I did push team 68 (Truck Town Thunder) in two matches, 1 of which resulted them in flipping over 5 seconds after, I tried to flip them back over while they were still on one side of the chassis driving around but without the turret on our robot it was useless. I didn't want to flip them. Sorry for doing it though.


And that's pretty much it. I enjoyed the competition a lot, not my first and certainly not my last looking forward to Greater Toronto next week with a working shooter AND good defense

Re: 2006 Waterloo Regional

wow what a great regional...

Thanks to Team 1114 and 1503 for picking us as your partners, helping us add weight to our robot , you guys are amazing partners.

771-your robots keep getting better year after year, keep up the good work.

188- Wolburn, I remember competing againsts you guys in the finals of the 1995 Canada FIRST robotics competition. You guys were a strong team back then and continue to be a strong team now.. I liked your paint roller pickup/shooter system.

188, 610, 771 - That was a great finals, that first match was very close, i believe it was a tie until two of our robots made it up the ramp.

The students and mentors of team 1281, you guys worked hard all weekend, keep it up at Toronto
