Based on the quote below from last year's KC Regional thread, I don't think 2167 is competing this year. Their school will be closing after this next season, but their team isn't even registered on a waitlist.

Now that all of the movement from the software glitch has been taken care of, hoping to see some of the teams who didn't have a first regional at all start to find their way into the system.

2nd Event Preference Registration runs October 12th through 11:00 am Central on the 19th.
Team 1986 we look forward to seeing you all at Seven Rivers. 6424 will still try to get to KC. We are waiting to see how everything shakes out tomorrow with the 2nd lottery closing. It will be interesting to see what is left out there for the 3rd event.

We simply did not have the time or resources to run a team this year. Our other main mentors have also had more demands on their jobs making a 2018 season not feasible.

FIRST has been a constant in our family the past 7 years. Jeff will still be lending his programming knowledge to any team that needs assistance as well as volunteering at FTC and FRC events.

Best of luck to all the teams! Back to back regionals will be crazy! I'm sure you will see Up Next faces at both competitions.

God Bless! Sharon

Team 5801 has reached out to members of 3528 so that if any should still want to participate in FRC that they may have a place to go. Hopefully the Up Next program can be revived next year and return to their former excellence!

Re: Greater Kansas City and Heartland Regionals 2018

How do waitlists work?

Noticed that someone dropped out of the GKC event. FIRST is now showing 37 spots taken with 1 open spot. I know there are teams on the waitlist. Can someone snipe that 1 spot who hasn't made a 2nd event registration yet, or is it being held in reserve because there is a waitlist?

Re: Greater Kansas City and Heartland Regionals 2018

Once the event goes to waitlist it stays there until FIRST HQ releases it.
Even if slots open up by teams dropping out, admittance onto the event list is still through HQ only.

At this point I imagine that preference is going to go to any team appearing on the waitlist who doesn't have any event at all yet.
So, regardless of how many open slots are showing, new teams will still continue to be added to the waitlist, and FIRST HQ will explicitly move any teams by hand into the event.

2167 is run out of the Missouri Academy at NWMSU. The academy has been shut down after this school year. So they only have seniors left and 2 returning members. That said they told me that they were still forming a team and I mentioned how they were late and they assured me they were getting registered this past weekend. We shall see. Unfortunately I live in KC and can only travel up on weekends to help them out and am the only mentor. The school representative has turned over every year so it is hard getting the new person up to speed.
