How many teams in 2005?

So, registration is open. We're less than a day into it and there are already 320 teams registered.

http://www.usfirst.org/frc/map/FMPro...-max=all&-find

Last year, we got close to 1000 teams.

Does anyone want to speculate on how many teams will compete this year?

I'm going to guess 1070.

It looks like the first rookie team number for 2005 is 1498. Will we reach team number 1700?

Re: How many teams in 2005?

I am going to guess that we will have 1110 teams this year.

Also, I made a few observations about the list:
Did anyone else notice the concentration of the rookie teams?
7 of the 24 new teams so far are located in Michigan. While NewYork and New Hampshire together have another 7 new teams.

There are also very few teams signed up that would be in their second year. The first 100 teams on the list takes us up to team number 291. While there are only 42 teams between team numbers 1200-1500. Either many of last year's rookie teams are slow to register or they just aren't coming back. While there are still many teams that have been around for a much longer time.

Just some small observations.

Re: How many teams in 2005?

I'm going to say 1293 teams compete. (I swear, that's my real guess.)

As for team numbers, I'm going to say we'll easily hit 1700. Maybe 1800.

Re: How many teams in 2005?

I say 975 total teams. That's right, I'm the first one to guess that the total will go down. ::gasp::

I think the highest rookie number will be 1603.

I feel like the guy on The Price Is Right guessing $1.

Re: How many teams in 2005?

i'm going to go a number involving the number 2.... so i'm going to say 1024 + 256 teams = 1280.. just because i like binary

highest rookie? maybe 1586 (because i feel totally random around that area)

Re: How many teams in 2005?

I don't think its going to be reach over 750. I know its a significant decrease from last year. I believe that a lot of teams are calling it quits due to money issues. It is difficult to get someone to donate to a worthy cause these days, you know with the economy the way it is. These things happen. So I stand at my guess of about 750 - 800 range. I know shocking!

Absolutely not. That's saying we'll lose over 200 teams that competed last year, and not a single rookie will register.

I dont see any way we have less than last year, and I'm betting we'll get 100-200 rookies

Re: How many teams in 2005?

I think we'll have a total of about 975 teams this year. Rookie #s will reach 1800.

Total guess. It's going to be really close on whether we break 1,000 I think.
