Holy stacked regional batman. Should make for another great year of the midwest regional…

This is pretty much as predicted, considering all of the MI regionals are now locked out for most of us.

I wouldn’t link the strength of the team list to purely the new MI districts. If anything, the absence of 33, 503, 1024 and others from the 2009 list makes Midwest less competitive this year.

But of course, not all the spots have been taken yet.

Hey dude! Don’t forget my team lol. Number 2741!

lol

I think the DC regional is looking like a tough week 1 regional at this point as well. Let’s see how things look in a few weeks.

Wheee 1024! I really really enjoyed the Midwest regional last year, and I’m sure it will be just as much fun this year.

Speaking of which… I’m going to be attending the Midwest regional this year on Saturday (and perhaps Friday evening as well, provided I can find some room in one of the rooms for our team… hint hint 1024 CD-ers)… double Wheee!

One of the most stacked regionals I’ve ever seen. One of the toughest regionals this year if not the toughest. I know it’s a week one competition but there should be some really intense matches in this one. The elimination matches will be amazing to watch. Can’t wait to watch the webcast. Only 15 more days!!

Maybe, but it (nor most other recent regionals) doesn’t even come close to Great Lakes back in the day.

Thanks to the wayback machine, here are the team lists
2002
2003

you can room w/ me alex! (qbranch for those of you who don’t know him by name)

Unforuntately, 1038 won’t be there to be the field reset crew, like last year.

you forget we’re youngins dave lol

Midwest regional has been stacked for a while now, it has had many championship teams and teams that are always competitive even some new teams are as competitive as the best

Haha! I remember those days. That was when I was in high school and back on the ThunderChickens. I’m happy to see them coming here to Chicago this year. It really will be an intense competition. I’m excited!

This should be a very competitive regional as always.
See you in 1.6 days.

Don’t be surprised when you see 2022… :yikes:

Will there be a webcast?

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Overdrive MWR last year. Those great teams make it look like a week 4 or 5 regional instead of week #1!

I think the webcast will be on this link:

I was actually planning a road trip for this one, but then the wife reminded me that i have a wedding to go to. My son’s. Geez, don’t people know we are tied up this time of year.:slight_smile:

Has anyone heard or know if the web cast will be working this weekend?

I heard WildStang (111) needed a seperate network drop to web cast the event.

Hope they get it working.
