Houston Area Scrimmage

Hello from FRC Team 441!! I would like to invite the Houston Area teams to our scrimmage that we will be hosting at John H. Reagan High School on Saturday Feb. 18th. We would GREATLY appriciate it if teams brought sections of the field since we only have the hoops and a bridge. You are also welcome to come Friday to drop off your robot etc. or maybe get a little game time before Saturday.

If you have any questions you can email me at: andres_brg@reaganrobotics.com

Thanks, from FRC441!

So far we have responses from

2335, 2585, 1429, 3847, 2587, 441 & 3823

Houston has always struggled to put together much of a scrimmage. Hopefully this year we can have more participation !

The important thing is that teams have the support of teams like the DiscoBots, Team Spectrum, and the Devil Dogs, helping to make these opportunities available.

Let us know how the scrimmage goes,

Re: Houston Area Scrimmage

Thanks to Team 2587 and Rice University for hosting the scrimmage today. We got in some quality practice time with the ramp. We had not seen one before today, but before we left, we could get on it and over it fairly easy. This will be a fun game to play this year!

We had a good turn out on Saturday, 441, 2585, 1429, 3847 & 2587 all attended.

We played a few ramp tricks and shot basketballs, check out this photo of two robots on the ramp, http://twitter.com/discobots

Re: Houston Area Scrimmage

We let Lucia know we're planning to attend tomorrow, but just wanted to verify that we don't need to bring any additional field pieces.

624 will be there around noon-ish...

Thanks again!

Re: Houston Area Scrimmage

After the scrimmage what were the conditions of the balls/ were shooter robots missing more shots as the quality of balls went down?

Re: Houston Area Scrimmage

Some of the balls were pretty chewed up. Some were missing the covers all together. They were still able to be shot.

However, if the past holds true at the events, there will be PLENTY of new balls that will be introduced during the games when they begin to show wear.
