Gitchi Gummi Get-Together 2018

The Duluth East Daredevils are once again hosting the Gitchi Gummi Get-Together! We've got a goal of raising the team count from 24 to 30, and of adding some new workshops!

The event will be taking place July 20-21 at Duluth East High School in Duluth MN. We currently have 15 teams on our list, and as per usual we're adding teams on a first-come-first-serve basis, so sign up quickly.

Once again, we intend to have a few workshops and discussions on Friday before matches start. If you have any requests for specific topics you'd like to see a presentation on, or if your team wants to host a workshop or discussion, feel free to post in this thread or send me a PM.

As our schedule currently stands, we'll run 12 matches per team, putting us at a total of 60 matches.

As per usual, we'll be adding thirty seconds of time to the teleoperated portion of the match. Stay tuned for more rule updates - they'll both be posted here and emailed to the contact email provided at registration.

As we've done the last 4 years, we encourage teams to have multiple drive teams. One of the points of the Gitch is to help teams get competition-style drive practice in a non-pressured environment, and we encourage teams to offer this chance to as many students as possible.

Our registration form, as well as more detailed information about event logistics (and UMD housing!) can be found on our website.

(The jury is still out on whether we'll be following the suggestion from this thread, but I can dream...)

Re: Gitchi Gummi Get-Together 2018

Current list:
1816, The Green Machine
2177, The Robettes
2491, NoMythic
2512, Duluth East Daredevils
2846, FireBears
3026, Orange Crush
3102, Tech-No-Tigers
3130, The ERRORs
3244, Granite City Gear Heads
3275, The Regulators
4009, Denfeld DNA Robotics
4230, TopperBots
4607, CIS
5690, SubZero Robotics
6047, Proctor Frostbyte

To any MN team on the fence about signing up: I highly recommend it. Gitchi last year was some of the most fun our team has had (despite all our problems). It is so relaxed that basically any team member can pick up the control during one of the many matches your team gets and you can make friends with pretty much anyone there. Iím super excited to be going back!

Re: Gitchi Gummi Get-Together 2018

40 (ish) days left! We've got 19 teams registered right now, so there's plenty of space left.

As promised, the rule updates:

G09: Launching of cubes will not be penalized as long as the intent is clearly to place CUBES on either SCALE PLATES or SWITCH PLATES, or in the ALLIANCE EXCHANGE ZONE.

If a team moves more than one CUBE at a time, as long as it is clear there was no strategic intent behind the action, it will not receive a penalty from G22. (This applies to unintentionally moving cubes during AUTONOMOUS.)

RO5: 5 pounds will be added to the ROBOT weight limit

These updates are all designed to encourage new drivers, and were made with the idea in mind that we (should) have newer drivers on the field.

On that note, we recommend that all teams have at least three drive team's worth of students trained and prepared to use the robot controls. We will be publishing a recommended schedule which indicates which matches teams should use their primary or in-season drive team in, to insure fairness. We do encourage teams to be fluid however, and do not require strict adherence to this schedule.


If anyone has suggestions for seminars to be held, or if anyone wants to host one, please feel free to PM me, or contact us through the team website.


Tentative schedule can be found on our website here.

We could also use some volunteers in field reset, if anyone is eager to find out what it's like on the other side of the operation. Information about volunteering can be found on the team's website under Gitchi Gummi Get-Together.
