Who’s ready for the 2011 installment of the Waterloo Regional? Over the years this event has seen vices and dumbells strapped to robots, a team almost losing a 1 v 0 match, and of course a 300 L bag of popcorn.I’m sure this year’s event will continue the legacy of the zany and unpredictable events of what has become known has the most fun event in all of FIRST. Adding to the excitement will be the return of our old game announcer after a one year abscence! I know I’m pumped.
The 3 Grandville Michigan teams cannot wait until Waterloo! We are still at the West Michigan event and we are already talking about the trip cross-border! I can only imagine if the guards ask to check the trailer and they open it to see 3 robots, 9 carts full of tools and the other full of luggage!
I can imagine it now:
Guard- “This is lunacy!”
Team member- “No that was 2009…”
…Interesting… Why does TBA say the match score was 14-20?
I understand the 20. (1006 scored 8 pts (3 robot laps + 1 trackball lap), plus 12 pts for the other red ball still on the overpass), but wasn’t <G22> (line violation by 1535 in auto) a 2 pt penalty? I guess the final score makes sense if <G22> was a 10pt penalty…
I hope the announcer game returns, it was really good fun. I wish I was there for the ridiculousness that is the combo of Karthik and Paul. Not sure who is running the webcast, (if you guys need help send me an email), but hopefully there is some level of interaction.
I hope I can sneak down there for Saturday, but its a long way from Kingston…
