Robots@CNE

About

This offseason will be primarily targeted towards exposing FIRST to the public, on a large scale. Because of this, our event schedule will be a lot different than other offseasons. We’re going to be operating in 2-3 hour ‘blocks’ of time, with breaks in between allowing for teams to have more time to tune their robots, or explore the CNE!

Details

When: August 23-25 2019
Where: CNE Innovation Garage, Enercare Center Hall F
Cost: $300 CAN + HST ($339 + 2.99 transaction fee)
Capacity: 24 Teams (waitlist for any registered past 24.)
Details: https://robotsatcne.com
Team registration: https://tickets.authentigate.ca/cne/#/shop/

Highlights

  • 3 round tournament (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 alliance winners)
  • 2-3 Hour competition blocks (On 2 hours, off 1 hour) - Final schedule to be determined

Confirmation on Robot Rules:

Due to the exhibition nature of the event we are not making any game rule changes as of now. This may change closer to the date with suggestion from teams attending, but as of now we will be playing the same Destination Deep Space as the regular season.

Robot rules have changed a bit. The weight limit has been increased to 130lbs, with more changes incoming shortly.

This event was awesome last year! Hoping lots of team can come over and join us, even though there was 19 teams joined, but I cant wait for this event to start!

How did I not know this happened last year? This sounds so cool! If this is aimed at the public, I think it would be cool to do some exhibition matches. I think the most famous example of one of these is the fuel-only match at Chezy Champs 2017. What I would want to see would be a no defense match, so we can see just how high a score we can get.

Absolutely! We’re still working on the schedule but some exhibition matches are definitely planned.
We’re hoping to have a few CNE vs FRC matches like we had last year with Virginia Ludy, the CEO of the CNE!

How about some Raptors vs FRC matches? That ought to get more exposure.

If you’ve got the hookups to make that happen I’m sure the CNE folks would be overjoyed.

2706 has filled in the registration form! Awaiting to hear if we made it in.

Currently all applied teams automatically are registered! The form is set to close after we reach our capacity (30). The CNE is handling registration so we’ve got a bit of a delay in when we hear what teams are registered.

We can’t wait to see you there!

The 27ohh dream team! Now we just need Lake effect and we’ve got ourselves an alliance! I wonder if we’ll have our pits side by side again.(Like at provincials.)

@JamieSinn Is there a place where you will be posting/updating the list as you hear which teams have registered?

I’ll post an updated team list once I get it from the cne. I’ve sent them an email this morning!

Have you received anything yet?

We’ve gotten some more information regarding our schedule, but since the CNE’s finance team is currently super busy with the Toronto Indy, they said they would be back in office next week to get us an updated list. (Hopefully)

But! Expect us to post an event schedule shortly since we will be running alongside the CNE Pitch competition this year instead of just blocking out time for them! (Something heavily requested by teams last year)

For a further update - we will be using FMS Sync - meaning all event results will be posted to http://frc.events/2019/ONTOR in the same format as in season events!
