Re: 2007 New Hampshire Regional (BAE SYSTEMS Granite State Regional)

Thanks for the fun at GSR.... I do however have a few comments, I will not yet call them complaints because I don't feel like getting flamed right now.

Venue..... Food still kinda expensive for high-school students..

Parking... Again it was horrible, we made the best of the parking garage, we also had a few vehicles behind the venue. Which brings me to my next observation..

Why are the rear entrance/exit doors not accesible enter or exit. Security would not be an issue, I saw several "STAFF" or "SECURITY" that could have been watching these doors screening for what ever they screen for. These doors could have been used, I may have actually been dry on Friday if they were.

Pit access, One way in , one way out. Was it all because they wanted to control the use of safety glasses?? I call fire trap.... It was a complete bottle neck there.... I don't think the fire marshall would have approved.

Other than that, very friendly FIRST people as usual, the medical staff was very attentive to one of my students needs, thank you for that...

Norris, do you only have those 24 for NH? The quality is great and I bet I'm not the only one who wants to see the finals of GSR again.

A) I can't believe how many teams didn't use 172's awesome ramp. Falgor, you guys were great for winning the spirit award and you designed the bot I wish we'd built.
B) Holy hell, the winning alliance was ultrapowerful. Congrats to 501/175/1834. I gotta tell you, I was sitting up there in the balcony when you were playing our alliance in the finals, just thinking "$@#$@#$@#$@#...there is to be a way to beat them. There has to be SOME WAY to beat them." But guess what? There wasn't. You'll do BAE proud at Nats!
C) Thanks to 1474 and 500 for picking us to be their alliance partner. I thought an alliance without a ramp be two and out, but boy was I wrong. 500, when we both scored in autonomous mode it was one of the greatest feelings of comp. We've been to the playoffs each of our five years in FIRST, but never to finals until now. Thanks for the trip.
D) Speaking of great feelings, how awesome of a feel-good story was Team 1991? Rookies, and half of their team is from the American School for the Deaf? I got chills when they won both rookie awards and the entire crowd, rather than clapping, signed applause.
E) I also got goosebumps during Dean's speech about changing the way we teach and bringing FIRST to everyone. I don't share his abject hatred for phyiscal activity--I like to walk, and I loved high school sports--but the man can speak.

Also, my team has a copy of the entire projector video feed from competition. We have to figure out our legal rights regarding it, but then we'll check on what (if anything) we can put on the web.
the rookie awards were touching yes, however they were the only rookie team in attendance as far as i know.

the sign applause looks soooooo cool though!!!

haha and there was a way to beat 175/501/1834... but we couldnt pull it off more than once

Thanks you saved me a lot of time. I'm the one that had the two dvd burners (overlapping coverage and backup just in case). I just wanted to make sure there was an archive copy of the matches as in the past GSR hasn't been as well covered. I also took additional video footage going wide when the arena feed was in close and close when arena feed was wide. Eventually I'll intercut these two streams but there really isn't a pressing need at this point.

Thanks again!

Bud

I'm downloading these now, but what are they from? Are they the official feed? If so, how did you ascertain the legality of redistributing them? If not, what are the videos of, and who took them?

That definitely was annoying, that you couldn't enter through the time-honored method of leaping over the walls on the opposite side of the robot entrance. Hopefully they change it back...

Re: 2007 New Hampshire Regional (BAE SYSTEMS Granite State Regional)

Another year, another great regional. Congratulations 190 on your chairmen's, you definitely have a shot in ATL. In a stunning turn of events, another BattleCry S.T.A.R. and UFH won a WFFA. Congratulations Dan, and the rest of team 40. And I've got to hand it to the Powerknights and company, you guys pulled it off in a big way.

I too got chills down my spine with the signing applause. Dean's speech was pretty darn good as well. Woodie was back for the first time since 2004, which I thought was pretty awesome.

A few comments:

-Next year, can rookie inspectors be teamed up with veteran inspectors, and at least given a crash course of what to expect?

-Entrance and Exit for the pits

It is a good idea, but less than perfect in solution. Traffic flow was much smoother in years prior when the additional gate was open. I like the the fact that safety glasses were handed out, but just one or two more entrances would have made things much smoother.

-Food

I don't know what you guys are talking about. It just isn't BAE without a chicken tender basket ($6.50) and souvenir soda ($3.50). I don't consider $10 a terrible deal for lunch.

And finally...

Thank you, very much to the GDC who designed this game. I thought it was on par with 2004, my favorite game thus far. Raising the Bar was my first game, and I think everyone recalls their first game as the best. This one was better.

You can thank us for that We totally started it... after 1991, of course. Nothing was better than listening to the arena gradually get silent after all of the other teams caught on.

I grew slightly frustrated at the people who blocked the entrances to the pit because they didn't have safety glasses. Would be so hard to open up a different entrance for people without safety glasses?

My impressions of BAE

One of the most professional FIRST events I had the pleasure of attending. THe arena is very nice. The food had good variety for concession food but was rather pricy. The pits were on the tight side and it would have been nice if they had a place for the teams to dance. The Riot Crew's mascot came up to where we were up top and I was worried they were goig to fall down and really get hurt. THe parking wasn't so hot but at least it was free.
I would personally like to thank Jess, Andy, Greg, Kristin, Ryan (sorry our driver Jay had to take you down at air hockey but we need to get his competitive juices flowing for FLR. He's ready to go now!) and the crew for showing us a good time at the Jillains (I never knew they came so small but I was happy to see one since the one we had folded a couple of years ago).
I can't wait to go back next year!

It's one of the better places that I've been over my several years of mentoring, although I always finding myself doing a double-take at several other places we've gone as well (the inside of the arena at Palmetto is so eerily like BAE that I had to look at dates on last year's picture to separate the two).

Myself, I had quite a good time, although I'm disappointed that Team 95's autonomous didn't work on the field (it works fine in the practice pit, but such is life and engineering).

In any case, thanks to all the teams who competed with and against us, everyone who welcomed me into their pit to show off their robot, and good luck in the rest of your season.

Now to wait until Atlanta...

The announcement of the BAE Regional Volunteer was done on Thursday afternoon, in a fairly empty arena.

Brian Lee, the recipient of the award, should have been celebrated in front of a larger crowd.

Congratulations, Brian!!!!
