2008 Regional Registration Progress


#1

Back to my typical geekiness. I’ve compiled an early list showing 2008 FRC regional registration progress. As expected, Week 1 and Week 2 events seem to be filling a little faster than others; fewer spots are available those weeks because there are fewer events.

Some events are already shown as full, although it is very likely that spots are being held in reserve for new teams at those events. The ones that appear full as of this tally are: BAE Granite State, Midwest, Greater Kansas City, Detroit, Oklahoma City, and Hawaii.

I’ll try to update this list periodically, until/unless FIRST posts a summary. They’ve done that in previous years but I couldn’t find it today.

Please keep in mind that while TIMS is open this data can and will change often, so by time I submit this post it will already be out of date. :slight_smile:

Interesting data, Richard–and certainly reassuring for those of us whose teams have yet to register.

I’ve been compiling my own data as to which teams are still missing, which can be seen here. My method was to copy the data from teams by state from 2007 (seen here for South Carolina), compile in the spreadsheet, then compare against this roster, which appears to show all teams registered for a 2008 FRC event. (It lines up with my spot-checks and checking of nearby regionals.) As of about 1:00 PM today, I counted 698 teams yet to register out of 1,298 teams listed from 2007.

I’ll update the sheet as I get time over the coming weeks.

Thanks for the sanity-check, Billfred. It agrees with my more cursory observation (a few minutes after posting the list above) that about 700 teams have registered for their first-choice regional. So on day two of 2008 registrations we are already above half the number of teams that participated in 2007.

I’m guessing there will be over 400 rookie teams this year, so relative to the eventual total about 41% have registered so far.


#4

Abbreviated update: 779 teams now registered. Two more regionals appear to be filling up. SBPLI Long Island now shows 31 teams attending and zero open slots. Florida now shows 51 teams attending and just 3 open slots. This brings the total to eight regionals that appear to be full, or nearly so.

Will update the full list in post #1 next week.


#5

As of right now, I count 776 registered teams, distributed as follows:

I can do really neat analysis of things because I have The Blue Alliance database.

That doesn’t seem quite right - aren’t there 41 regionals this year? I’m only seeing 30.


#7

I suspect my query is omitting nulls.


#8

Great Lakes Regional (week 5) is missing from your list. I know there are teams registered for it.

I also don’t see Minnesota and Philadelphia, week 5 or New York week 6. I suspect your list got cut off partway through.


#9

I am foolish. This is the first 30 results of the query…

Here are all of them, as of when I posted earlier. The second number is the week times ten. IE Week 1 = 10

As of this evening there are 100 rookie FRC teams registered for 2008. And registration has only been open for five days. :slight_smile:


#11

So sad, Hawaii doesn’t rate (and neither does Israel or Brazil).


#12

The Blue Alliance Events Page now provides a semi-live count of teams attending each regional. Waterloo and Pittsburg seem particularly empty as of yet.


#13

I just now got Google Docs to play nice again, and I updated the spreadsheet to see who’s left.

http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=p1cILXUy2xl0raZMKkEdMNg

Currently, 551 teams have yet to register. 857 teams have registered overall, including rookies and teams coming off inactive status. (I noticed that 710 had registered for Florida–has anyone else caught teams on the rosters making a comeback?)


#14

Thanks, Billfred.

Do you mind clarifying how you’re generating the “who’s missing?” list? I notice that 1178 is shown on the list of the missing, but also appears on the list of registered teams here, which still shows a total of 857 teams. IIRC, 1178 was shown as registered for St. Louis as of yesterday afternoon.

[edit] same story on 1288 [/edit]


#15

Initially, I was going down the list of 2007 teams and the list of 2008-thus-far teams. When I found a team registered for a 2008 event, they came off the spreadsheet.

Now, I’ve started copying the whole current 2008 list from FIRST, changing the team names in the current list to just “Registered”, sorting by team number, then deleting the Registereds and any entries from the 2007 teams (which would still have their proper names) that corresponded to a Registered number.

Naturally, having a human look over thousands of lines of spreadsheet introduces error–but after further review, it seems like I just forgot to click “Automatically republish when changes are made” on Google Docs. It should be fixed now.


#16

And so it is. Thanks again. :slight_smile:


#17

I went ahead and updated. As of probably 20 minutes ago, 463 teams remain unregistered. If you see any errors, drop me a line–remember, if I can screw up the caption contest scores, I can screw up anything! :wink:

With ten days to go until 2nd Regional registration opens, 1001 teams have registered: 862 veterans and 139 rookies. There are 728 published spots still open so registration is apparently 58% full. [Of course this neglects an unknown number of spots being held open for expected rookie teams at several regionals.]

Nine regionals are at their published registration capacity: BAE Granite State, Midwest, Greater Kansas City, NASA VCU, Detroit, Oklahoma City, Boston, Hawaii, and SBPLI Long Island. And Florida is all but full with only one published spot open.

Milestone: (1100 teams found.)](https://my.usfirst.org/myarea/index.lasso?page=teamlist&sort=teamnum&event_type=FRC&year=2008&area=)

Will update regional-by-regional and week-by-week figures again early next week, just before 2nd Regional registration opens.


#20

200 teams ahead of this same time last year.
