We’ve gotten the timing question a few times - for those procrastinators out there, applications will close at 11:59pm PDT on May 31, 2019.

Amazing roster!

Very excited to see 1619 and 5190 on this list. Can’t wait to welcome some great PNW teams again, thanks for making the trip down! Y’all make this event truly special.

Can’t wait!

Almost enough for a full field of sideways elevators. Also, we’re thrilled to have gotten in. This is the first invitational we’ve ever applied to, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone!

Waitlist is better than last year!

If my team doesn’t make it, I’ll see y’all down there while I volunteer :sunglasses:

Have one of the turret elevator bots lock their elevator perpendicular to the drivetrain and we’ll call it a day.

We’d actually like to stay turreted elevators. We’re sideways elevators^360

Can we please have 1425, 254, and 3476 vs 3309, 971, and 4414

The turret is too big an advantage. Are there 3 swerve teams to pit up against the three turrets?

No Madtown?

Also awesome to see a lot of PNW teams on the roster again! This’ll be one great event to watch.

Poofs didnt’ let us in! Jk jk

A few reasons why we couldn’t make it this year:

  • Downsizing our current area from 3 very large rooms to 2/3 of a large room. No Practice Field until the WCP warehouse finishes in Late August/September. School is renovating the current building, limited access till September/October. While this is happening we are working on our new area @ the new high school. We are basically in flux with our build area for the 2020 season and have spent 2 weeks just throwing away trash/moving stuff etc…
  • The kids that wanted to attend offseasons and put the work in graduated. These students spent a ton of time practicing and actually wanted to win each event they attended. So we felt it was valuable to attend as many and the hardest offseasons possible. Most of our team is now freshman.
  • Focusing on training/drive practice/recruitment and sponsors this offseason. We most likely won’t do any offseasons besides MTTD.

That being said the team will definitely miss Chezy Champs. We were def looking forward to going with this years robot.
