EDIT: It's 11, who's registered for Montreal, Mount Olive, Springside Chestnut Hill, and Montgomery.
11 will not be competing at Springside Chestnut Hill. Early in the registration process, we encountered limitations with our Board of Ed. regarding over night trips (Competing at just Mt. Olive, SCH, and Montgomery). We have since then resolved the issue and managed to squeeze into Montreal. We were not interested in a weeks 2,3,4 schedule.

It's a rare build session that I don't walk a mile - and then, it's usually because I gave in to the desire to build rather than strictly mentor. If my mentor-walking is at all typical, we're about a quarter of the way to Mars.

Re: Registration 2018

Here (left graph) are Veteran teams that haven't returned from last season, by the number of team-years the missing team(s) had under their belts.

There (right chart) are resurrected veteran teams also back this season, by the number of team-years the team(s) already had under their belts.

Re: Registration 2018

Mark,

Losing almost 50 Rookie teams seems like a lot. How many rookies were there in 2017 and is this a "normal" percent loss? I assume FIRST is tracking this somewhere.

Of course if I remember our Rookie season it is somewhat amazing we're still around too!

QFT. You are not alone.

Amazingly, many rookies overcome the OMG effect, and having drunk the Kool-Aid they are back again year after year.

Attrition is generally the highest among first and second year teams, as Mark's data shows. I think this is true in all areas, but it would be interesting to see the stats broken down by region/district geographic zones. Transient grants have influenced attrition significantly in some instances.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

Re: Registration 2018

Here is a graph of all the teams FRC has ever lost 1993-2017.
It illustrates a smooth curve directly related to years of team experience.

2017 had 425 new teams, so 2018's loss represents ~11.3% of last season's rookie teams.
The average over all teams lost for previous season rookies is 12.5%, so it's actually a little better than average.
