Battle of the Bay - Nov 14, 2015](

We had a fantastic inaugural Battle of the Bay (BOtB) last year and we can’t wait to do it again! Below is the information and the links to register and volunteer:

**Teams: **32
Registration: $125
More Information

58 is in!

Are teams still allowed to bring two robots? I loved the experience last year to compete against my own team.

Until further notice, yes. However, we may have to ask teams to only bring one robot if the event fills up. Plenty of time to figure that out, though.

Please make sure to fill out the registration form once for each robot.

Volunteers Wanted!

We are T-49 days, 15 hours, and 50 minutes from pits opening at BOtB, not that I’m counting or excited or anything. :rolleyes:

We also need volunteers for the last Off-Season of the 2015 season!

We’re looking for Scorers, Field Reset, a couple Queuers, a few more Refs, and maybe some miscellaneous volunteers. While it’s not required, extra hands for set-up and tear-down would be great!

You can register to be a volunteer here](

Join today!

If you have questions about volunteering, shoot me a pm or an email to BigBadBob319 (at) gmail (dot) com, and put “BOtB Volunteer Question” in the subject line.

BOtB is at 20 teams already!

319 is excited for this weekends Battle of The Bay. In keeping with our thanksgiving theme we have created a special container worth extra points if scored. Extra Extra Points if you can “turkey noodle” that soup.

5813 is super excited to be attending Battle of the Bay. :slight_smile:

I can’t wait to see all of the robots tomorrow. :wink:


How are you guys doing with your robot now?

We are doing great. :slight_smile: I’ll try to figure out how to post a picture at some point. Are you going to be attending?

Unfortunately I’m out at college until next weekend. I’m hoping to see some videos of you guys though!


Good luck tomorrow 5813! Definitely grab some videos of your first event. Sadly I won’t be able to make it up.

Alliances? Results? Videos? I hope it went well for everyone!

Alliances I remember (someone correct me if I’m wrong):

  1. 4564, 319, 1922 F
  2. 1519, 2648, 213 W
  3. 811, 4906, 4546 QF
  4. 125, 5813, 58 SF
  5. 3467, 1729, 4925 SF
  6. 501, 3476, 85 / 1721(?) QF
  7. 172, 5122, 151 QF
  8. 1831, 131, 2370 QF

5813 had a great day today! We were very excited to be selected by an amazing team like 125! :slight_smile: Congrats to our friends on 1519 for pulling out the win. :slight_smile:

Glad to see you guys picked so highly! Hope everything went well.

So the original alliance #6 was captained by 501, with the first pick being 3476 (our practice robot) and the random pick being 85 (58’s practice robot). It just so happened that 319 underestimated the amount of teams going, and invited our practice bots to come without paying an entry fee. However, there were two teams that DID pay entry fees that didn’t get selected for alliances, so 319 asked us if we would remove our practice robots from competition and ask 238 and 1721 to play with 501. We all unanimously agreed, and alliance #6 became 501, 238, and 1721. We will have both 3476s and 3467s match videos uploaded to Youtube soon, and I will post them here once they are done. Also, great job to 5813, your robot was AWESOME - you played like veterans. We can’t wait to compete with you in the regular season!

I got some pictures of the QF and SF Results (slightly blurry)

I would like to thank 1519 and 213 for being such awesome alliance partners and 4564, 319, and 1922 for playing hard. The finals were so intense and so close, what a way to end recycle rush! Battle of the bay was tons of fun and I know I can’t wait until next year!

I agree! It was tons of fun! And thank you Windup for picking us! As a mentor, it was great fun watching all the teams interact and having such a good time.

Battle of the Bay was a terrific event. :slight_smile: What a perfect way to end out an FRC season. Thanks Bob for hosting all of us!

Thanks, Jay. :wink: We had some ups and downs, but we had a fantastic time. I would like to thank 4564 for lending us surgical tubing for our can grabber (I’m glad we finally got it working near the end of our qualification matches), 319 for lending us a radio after our radio broke last week, and 1519 for lending us a robot signal light for the event. 319 did such a great job hosting this event that we will definitely be coming back next year. :smiley:

Okay, that makes sense. :wink: 5813 will be uploading some of our match videos to Youtube as well.

Thank so much, Emile! :smiley: We can’t wait to play with you next season as well. Your team is incredible. :wink:
