2017 Iowa Regional

The 2017 Iowa Regional starts very soon so it was time to get the thread started.

We are looking forward to seeing many of our friends at Iowa this week.

For me personally I am looking forward to seeing my High School Alma Mater compete, FRC Team 4011 Pi Robotics.

Good luck all teams.

Re: 2017 Iowa Regional

Looking forward to the regional. This will be the Channel Cat's first ever time attending the Iowa regional.

Here is the schedule: http://firstinspires.org/sites/defau...ACF_Agenda.pdf

We will be making a couple improvements to our robot including completely changing out the rope climber, so can't wait to see how it all works.

Re: 2017 Iowa Regional

Greetings teams,

I just wanted to mention that 2500 Herobotics will be presenting a seminar titled "Transforming our Culture - Inclusion and Diversity in FIRST" at the Iowa Regional on Thursday at 2PM. The seminar will be located in the "Hall of Fame Room" which is on the upper level of the connector between the Uni-Dome and McLeod Center.

Here's an abstract of the seminar for those interested:
"FIRST Robotics is a model that can work in many communities. Through this workshop, FIRST Team 2500 Herobotics will discuss ways to help widen the circle of FIRST, increase inclusion on your team, and connect with diverse cultural and economic groups in your community."

I hope to see some of you at the seminar! Good luck to everyone competing this weekend in Iowa. I can't wait!

I'm really excited that this regional will be broadcast on the FIRST Twitch. I'll be sure to post in chat from the pits! (watching on the video board you can see from everywhere, of course)

By any chance could this be recorded and posted for those of us who [no longer] live in Iowa?

Sadly I won't be able to attend this event but I know there will be some fantastic matches. A lot of very strong teams attending this regional. Good luck everyone!

I know that we were told the Hall of Fame room is very bright (darn windows!) and we can't have a projector screen in there. This issue may make the seminar hard to follow on a recording, but I'll still bring it up to team leadership and see if there's a way we could make it work!

Thank you kind internet stranger. We hope we don't let you down! After working out most of our problems in KC last weekend and having a great Saturday, the Metal Mustangs are ready to #rockthestable at Iowa.

Team 2410 is very excited to be returning to the Iowa Regional this year. We had a great experience last year up in Cedar Falls and can't wait to go in just a few days (and not just because we will be missing school ).

Having been so spoiled with the awesome practice field put up by the LSR-7 alliance here in KC, we were wondering if there will be a full practice field at the UNI Dome this year.
