Do we have a team list of who is registered? We want to come but aren’t sure if we will have enough kids just yet. Knowing who is there might help motivate some to see some friends.

5067 Iron Giants (Edwardsburg)
858 Demons (Wyoming)
2767 Stryke Force (Kalamazoo)
4568 Robot Commander (North Adams)
27 Team RUSH (Clarkston)
2054 Tech Vikes (Hopkins)
141 WOBOT (Holland)

This is the current list.

This event is not limited to Michigan teams. I’m talking to you Indiana and Illinois. It would be awesome to see some out of state folks!

Did you get enough teams to run this event?

Team 2959 is looking at the possibility to attend. Just need to make sure our team is available (or enough of them at least).

Also need to find the time to go over the bot. Poor thing has been on publicity tour all summer and while I am confident it can keep a gaggle of boy scouts entertained playing catch I am not 100% sure it is competition ready. :slight_smile:

We are still accepting registrations for the event.
Please contact me ([email protected]) if you are interested.
The cut off date is 26th Sept (this friday).

This is the current list

5067 Iron Giants (Edwardsburg)
858 Demons (Wyoming)
2767 Stryke Force (Kalamazoo)
4568 Robot Commander (North Adams)

Team 2959 The Robotarians will be there just sent in the registration.

That makes ten! Cool. I love new events, I’m going to check my schedule and see if I can make it out to volunteer.

We can accommodate 1 more team.
