Definitely a bit creepy, but I'm not all that worried - I'm sure that everyone will be fine in Atlanta. The fact that we're (usually) in large groups helps, and it's not like the city's police department will be on vacation while FIRST is down there.

Then again, 818 hasn't made it to Atlanta yet...

Actually I've been to Hotlanta a few times (I have brothers and a sister who live down there) and I was more concerned about the traffic than I was about crime but like any large city there are a few rough spots. I think teams should be a bit more mindful of their kids possibly wandering off, that's for sure.
Mostly I'm just put off that the police department would doctor numbers so they can attract events. Not very professional.

Re: Now this comes up

ah, speaking of hotlanta, any idea what the temperature would be down there during the middle of april?

i was initially a bit concerned about the crime rate, but considering its a big city, like koko ed said, every city has a bit of roughness to it. its nice to wish that everywhere we went we could be safe and secure but it aint gonna happen.

Rochester was in the crosshairs for it's crime rate from a Toronto writer who wrote some seriously nasty things about our little town when we were trying to get tourism from Toronto with the fast ferry comming to town.
If you look hard enough any city will have warts, I suppose.


P.s. The fast ferry would be a great way for the Canadian teams to get to the Rochester regional next year.

I remember bringing up that very point when we first started talking to FIRST about the regional.
