Re: ROBO-CON FRC Off Season Competition

As someone who attended ROBO-CON last year, I can definitely say this event was worth it for every team that can make it. The demos by local VEX and FTC teams was extremely interesting to the public, and the new full competition will surely be extremely competitive and a great way to introduce new students into FRC this offseason. Thanks 5460 and 1684 for setting this up year after year!

+ this - visited last year from far away Maine (on break from attending a high school reunion). I can vouch for it being a very well run event. Congratulations to the host teams for their successful runs on Curie this weekend.

Re: ROBO-CON FRC Off Season Competition

Added info to help clear up a few things just in case:

This is a full FRC off season comp with quals, elims & awards...you all know the drill.

For those teams who have been a part of ROBO-CON in the past you participated in the ROBO Driver's License activity we have for the public as well. This has changed and will now be moved to a mock 1/2 field near the other robotics fields. It will not be something attending teams do unless they'd like to volunteer to do so with a demo/practice/older bot. The FRC competition is completely separate now.

So come ready to compete & play Power Up one more time!
The host teams are excited to offer this for teams this year while the festival is going on!

Thank you! If 5460 doesn't see this, I'll pass it along!

Re: ROBO-CON FRC Off Season Competition

In the future it may be a good idea to have a link to the stream and live rankings on the website(http://www.mirobocon.com/frc-event.html). It was difficult to find if a stream even existed for a long time. I finally found it on the blue alliance but it wasn't posted anywhere else but in this thread.

So from FUN's end: We actually stepped in after qual matches started and provided our stream key so it could be aired. Prior there was no concrete plans on our end. Idk if they had other plans that didn't work out or not prior to the start.

We ended up using the stream as a last minute thing and when we got it up and running we posted it on both 1684ís and 5460ís Instagrams, Twitters, and Facebook pages within minutes. As well as posting it on TBA.

Re: ROBO-CON FRC Off Season Competition

This was an absolutely outstanding event. We got 9 qualifications matches in, the pits were literally a 10 foot hallway away from the playing field, and it was FUN!
