this will be fun

Should be lots 'o fun. I’ve been wanting to be in Tesla since 2015.

Side note: this is the fourth year in a row 2614 and 1676 have been in the same division at world…

& 2017 HoF 2614!

press f everyone, this division is… OP

Team 6090 is excited to play at Champs for the first time with all the awesome teams in Tesla!

22 Michigan teams! (Including a State Champ!)
(NOW I think I really have it correct)

Gulp

I count 22 teams from Michigan. 1/3 of the teams in Tesla. This is going to be a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see you all there! Good luck everyone!!

Every rookie in this division is competing for RAS, this’ll be interesting

this division is going to be so exciting. I can’t wait. Elims are going to be a show.

Looking through all the divisions, it looks like only 5 rookie teams advanced to Detroit without winning RAS at a regional/ district champ.

What I cannot figure out if teams are only eligible to win RAS at champs if they won it at a regional/ district champ, or if all rookie teams are eligible. Do you know?

What a packed division. Excited to get to play with all the other amazing teams and hopefully learn a lot!

You are only eligable to win RAS at champs if you have won it at previously qualifying event (DCMP or regional)

Do you mind to share where you got that information? I emailed FIRST to ask, and they only provided me with this LINK and said all the information could be found there.

I couldnt find anything at that link that says that teams are only eligible for RAS if they won it at a regional or district champ, so i assumed all rookie teams were eligible.

I don’t know exactly where it would be listed online, but it is similar to chairman’s in the fact that you must qualify at previous competitions. This is because RAS is meant to celebrate a chairman’s team in the making. At least that is how it has been explained to me by various judges + Gail for districts into dcmp so im assume thats how it works into cmps as well, i guess we’ll find out tomorrow when they award some at houston.

nevermind found it

Rookie Teams* are eligible for the Rookie All-Star Award at each Regional or District event. Teams will be restricted to earning this award once at each level of competition. In other words, once a team has earned Rookie All-Star Award at a Regional or District event, they may not earn it again that season at a later Regional or District Event. At District Championship, only District teams that have won Rookie All-Star Award at a District event during the current season are eligible.

Yeah, thst information is in the link they sent me, but it only talks about district teams only being eligible for the award at district championship if they won it at a district event. It doesn’t mention FIRST Champs. That is why I was confused, since they told me the information in the link would answer my question.

But it does make sense that only teams that won it previously would be eligible in Detroit.

Also teams that have already won one are probably more prepared to compete for it, so even if other teams are eligable theyre way more likely to win the award.

Yeah, that’s my thought as well.
