Volunteer confirmation emails were sent out earlier this week. Please check your email and respond to the included survey if you haven't yet!

The team information packet with all the event details is now available at: http://be.raiderrobotix.org/2018/TeamInfoPacket.pdf

Finally, there were some changes to the team list over the last few weeks—teams 2554, 303, and 1923 were all able to accept invitations from the wait list and will be joining us!

I think you misinterpreted the quote based on semantics. There are no more evil sundae contests ever, they didn't go "no evil sundae this year oh and no more BEs ever."

The exact quote was:
Quote:
1. The Evil Sundae contest has been canceled for tomorrow and all future BEs.

There was a recent incident in which a college student from NJ died after choking while participating in a pancake eating contest. As such, our school’s Supervisor of Club Activities had reservations about our team holding an eating contest and would require additional EMTs to be present at the event. Before learning of this horrific incident, the team’s mentors had already discussed this being the last year of the Evil Sundae. After starting out as something of an inside joke 11 years ago, the contest became tangential to the actual FRC competition and had run its course. Maybe we’ll try to think of a fun (and safe) activity to replace it with next year. Here’s a throwback to the massive crowd surrounding the first ever Evil Sundae contest: https://www.chiefdelphi.com/media/photos/29242

Against that backdrop, it's hard to disagree. I trust the BE crew will come up with something suitably evil as an alternative for next year.

Re: Brunswick Eruption 17 - Nov. 10, 2018

I know I was somewhere in that mass of people and can, in hindsight, vouch for the profound effect this event and contest had on me as a pre-rookie.

This was the second event I ever attended, and though I never participated in the evil sundae, it was always a staple I looked forward to observing.

Here's to the evil continuing in the future, however that may materialize!

Re: Brunswick Eruption 17 - Nov. 10, 2018

Great event, and just a tiny observation to add. The playoffs music was pretty cool. I think it was Pokemon R/B gym leader theme for quarters, elite four for semis, and Champion for finals?

Still, awesome.
