Re: Registration 2017

Add Danish as one of the official languages spoken by 2017 FRC teams.
A different Danish team than the community one from last year. This one is headed for Las Vegas.

Wonder if they'll play saxophone for their national anthem like the team last year?

Re: Registration 2017

We seem to have passed the peak and are slowly subsiding.

First attached chart is a graph of area gains ranked by percentage of total 2016 teams.

New Areas this year (# teams)
Guam --------- 2
Malaysia ------ 1
Morocco ------ 1
Switzerland --- 1
Vietnam ------ 1
Canada-YT --- 1


Established areas Gain/Loss as a % (so low team areas have the opportunity to make the greatest gain as a percentage, e.g., British Columbia had 1 team last year and gained 10 more for a 1000% gain.
Gain/Loss ---- State ---- 2017 Total

Re: Registration 2017

Hey Mark,

With the final events only being MSC and the CMPs, do you have a figure on how many teams actually competed this year? I know that teams registered != teams competing.

Thanks for being cool.

Don't forget the Seven Rivers Regional in Wisconsin. There are several teams competing that this will be their first event.

Re: Registration 2017

Sorry for the bump, but I figured this would be the best place to post an observation.

I am poking around the new FIRST team dashboard and it looks like FIRST will be trying a new registration system next year, after the fiasco this year. The "Events" page mentions an "Event Preference Registration" will be open on September 21st till the 28th for FRC teams. It specifically says that this is for "1st Regional and 1st District Events."

I believe there was a blog post roughly 24 hours after said fiasco started that FIRST would be changing registration systems to more of a preference-based system.

Implementation will be interesting, I think, to say the least...
