Brunswick Eruption Results and Thanks

It is with great honor that I announce the winners of the first Brunswick Eruption-


271

341

25


Thank you to 341 and 271 for being great partners and always backing up the Scorpion full force.
Also, thank you to team 303, our gracious cohosts, for all of their help setting up the field and dismanteling.

Was the competition fun? Well-ran? What was the best moments- or the worse? Your thoughts are welcome on this matter. As it is our first, we are looking for ways to improve.

One of my personal favorite moments was when 56 and us (303) were competing in the strength compeition and both of us ended up at 45 degree angles from the carpet with the goal suspended a good 7-8 inches off the ground .

It was a well ran event with the exception of a few technical issues. And the awards were awesome .

Thumbs up It was cool!

The Competition was great!

I was very happy to be able to attend the Brunswick Eruption. The trophies were awesome!

You said you were looking for suggestions to improve the competition for next year. The only thing i can think of is making the "fun rounds" a little shorter. They really made the competition drag. Other than that, it was a great competition.

Congrats to #4 alliance (341,25,and 271). Also, thanks you teams 224 and 651 for being our alliance partners. We put up a good fight in the finals.

Thanks to Mr. Volcano for letting me keep the shirt. It will not be tortured in anyway.

Too bad i won't be in the competition next year.

Heres the final rundown of all the awards won today at BE. I will post photos as I can edit the. I have 150 disks worth.

Anyway-

Kids Favorite Robot- 11
Ladies Favorite Robot - 303
Crowd's Favorite Robot- 87
Judges Favorite Robot- 365
Ladies Rounds Winners- 87, 651
Drag Racing Winner- 293
Strongest Robot - 869
Runners Up Alliance- 224,365 and 651
Champions- 25,271,341

I personally would like to thank all of you for your patience and great participation. In the morning especially, with two teams not appearing, it was a scramble to get the event going. While I didn't see much of the competition I did hear it!! Dr. Kamen told us that we were louder than the Rutgers Regional.


I hope everyone had a good time. Thanks for supporting our rookie team freinds at 1089 too in their 50/50. Somebody went home with a nice pocket full of the green stuff.

I am told there will be a program on the event on Cablevision the week of Dec 3. I will post more on this as it comes up.


And thanks to our alliance partners 271 and 341. We played our way up through the wildcard rounds and showed them what we had. The finals were quite a battle and you all played admirably.

I hope everybody left happy and as friends. I can tell you this- the new season is going to be a great one!!!

WC

Hey- if anyone has a photo of the infamous "pedestal round" in the strength battle, please post it!! That was amazing.

For those who missed it two robots, 303 and 56 in the "Sumo" type match, apparently applied just the right amount of pressure at just the right timing for both robots to tip backwards on their chassis lifting the goal about a foot off the ground and effectively pinning them both backwards with their wheels spinning in the air. 303 eventually won the match because the marker for the goal was about 3 inches moved in their direction but you couldn't do that again if you planned it. Bizarre.

It took both teams and the field crew lifting the goals to get the two disengaged.

Why do these things seem to happen to 303?

Thank you.

The compeitition was a lot of fun

This compeitition helped our team a lot because it taught a lot of the freshman and other new comers what FIRST is about, and we had several new people drive the robot which gave them a first hand experience of how hard it usually is. It also taught me how much teaching I'm going to be doing this year (being a senior)

I'd like to thank team 25 and 341 for being amazing.

The following is my opinion, not my teams.

I felt like we were leeches because obviously we were pretty much forced onto you guys and we had not been doing the best today mostly do to the fact that we were trying new people as well the last two events the robot had done were PR events outside in which we pretty much ran it to the ground. I really felt bad because I know what it is like to see a robot on an alliance that doesn't do anything, get the big prize because they got picked. But when we moved MOE the last round I felt that we deserved a little part of that amazingly cool trophy we got.
So pretty much what I'm saying is you guys rock!
oh yeah THE TROPHIES ROCK!

The compeition was a whole lot of fun though. This was our 7th one this year and it was just as good as the first, maybe even better!

See you both at the Chesapeake regional!

Hey Chubtoad-

You gotta be kidding about the last rounds! Moving Moe is no mean feat. If your machine didn't block them in place whenever we got back to make a run at the turning goal we could never have moved anybody. As we backed off to run at the goal they could have shot forward. They almost did. Remember- we can't go deliberately crashing into the arms in light of deliberate damage.

We know from our last experience with Moe that it takes two to move the monster. Once they anchor their grippers it is hard to move them at all. You have no reason to regret.

Thanks for being our partner. You deserve the trophy as much as the rest of us.


(PS- thanks for all the nice compliments from everybody on the trophies. You all know we have the "Aloha from NJ" theme. In 1999 we wanted to getthe team to Orlando for the first time and that was a part of our positive mindset transition. So Hawaiian has become a part of our team identity
The tikis on top are from a distributer in Honolulu. They are plastic, not wood, but I can't tell easily. Jesse Perry ( the crazy midfield dancer Mr. Volcano runner up) made the bases in his shop class. The plaques (sorry if they are loose) were engraved in the metal shop at BMS. The project was a team effort.

Oddly- team 25 probably does more business in Honolulu than in NJ. The shirt manufacturer, Royal Hawaiian Creations, has been a supporter of ours for the last 5 years and we send them pix of our events and accomplishments. From what I hear they are as much a part of the team as we are and they post the team group shots all around the factory.

With the scorpion finally retired, I'd like to also thank previous finalist partners:

303
102
87
84
357
271
and of course, last but not least, 341.

Nothing could have been done without ANY of you, as the finals are always a kamikazee battle for the final trophy. How can I ever forget now the tristate triangle with 303 and 102.
The underdog partnership with 87? Team 84 and 357 showing us exactly what power is as they dragged us across the line to score for our team? 341's excellent job at keeping moe at bay by themselves? 271's vital assistance in pushing back the monster of MOE? None of it shall ever disappear from my memory. What a first season. Thank you all!

That was amazing - I think the planets must have been aligned properly or something! I don't think we could make that happen again if we wanted to.

That was a fun competition. Thanks Team 25!!

considering the fact that I'm still in a daze, and I have so much more to do today, I'll try to keep this short...

ThankYouThankYouThankYou
everyone, putting it together, being there, coming apart on the feild (some of those rounds were violent, it was like a robotic war movie), for those few that danced and got into it all.
at times of the day I caught my self saying 'where am I? this isn't my school'
gym will never be the same again
Thank you (I'd make a list, but not only would it be really long, i don't want to forget anyone by accident, but you know who you all are!!!!)

((alright, so it isn't as short as I planed, but I can't help my exictment!!!)
