Alliance Selection will be #1-8 #1-8 then #8-1 till all robots are drafted, there will be no backup robots as each team will have a 4th robot.

We would like to thank WRRF/LA Robotics for their support. Also special thanks to 254/NASA for letting us use their field elements in the past!

Also we can’t thank each team from last year enough, we raised $2,500 for cancer.


Starting to collect pictures for this event, available here.

We haven’t hunted that hard yet, so some of these might be easy to find, but here is what we need;

1324 (1323 2nd)
5073 (2073 2nd)
6256 (3256 2nd)

I’m assuming 2nd robots are potentially different until I hear otherwise.

I’ll post updates as they happen. If anyone has pics to contribute please let me know.

Here’s a couple of videos from last year. That was such a fun event. We are looking forward to coming this year with both our A and B teams.

Phoenix (FRC2493) will be there.

Sigh, mah robot goes to more competitions than I do.

Only missing picture for 3859 now!

It’d be great if someone had it, they attended Davis this year.

Here you go Adam

Will the event be streamed via Madstream or TBA Gameday?
