Prepare, for Bernie will be on pit, which means dancy when me not fixy. And with Duckie on the speakers we’ll have proper homage to ALL songs required at a comp. With 29, 29 teams people, there’s plenty of people to move to the airwaves. People, bring them books too, lots of books. It’s Make-A-Difference Day so lets make our difference by piling on the books.

That’s an impressive team list - looks like it’s going to be a fun event! We can’t wait!

8 days till the Duel!!!

I’ve only gotten one music request e-mail do far… no one else has any songs they want to hear?

Deadline is next Thursday, 4:00pm for music requests.
At that point I will be turning off my computer and readying it for transport to the duel.

7 days till duel!!!

Hope everyone has their travel plans set.

<5 Days till Duel & <4 Days to get any music requests in.

wow. i’m sooo excited!!! i hope to see u all there!! :smiley:

Team 369 wont be able to participate in this event. We wish good luck to all teams. An e-mail was sent out to team 365 informming them. We apologize for the such short notice.

We’re not able to have an official NEMO get-together at the Duel, but am inviting all NEMOs and potential NEMOs to come by and say hello. I will be the head referee - stop by and see me between matches. There will also be Priscilla and Karen in the concession booth who also would like to say hello. If you are new to NEMO, we have flyers to introduce the program and point you to more resources, such as the white papers on sponsor packets, what to expect at a competition; 101 ways parents can help, etc etc.

Hope to see you at the Duel! :smiley:


::is going through robot withdrawl::


:smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I just got my yellow Hawaiian shirt and hair-paint out of storage.



Good luck to all the teams competing tomorrow.

I’ll be stuck in a freezing cold room at my high school taking the ACT’s.

ACT’s versus Driving a robot…eh i think i made the wrong choice.

But good luck to all, someone pick 25!

Who knows, i may hightail it down after the test and get there just before elims.

Well, I just returned home from a day of prep for the Duel. Field is ready. Video screen is hanging. And FIRST Vex Challenge field is coming together. Tomorrow should be a blast.

Attending teams - it should not be very difficult for you to find your pit spots. You will know what I mean tomorrow.

Oh, please remember to bring books for the book drive!

See y’all bright and early tomorrow morning.

Do the Duel!

Well, just came back from the Duel and it was great. Everyone should a lot of GP on/off the playing field. At this time, I would like to thank EVERYONE from 365 and 316 for letting me MC. I had alto of fun and it was amazing. Thanks again.

From everyone on Team 204,good luck at the off-season comps and the regionals . Can’t wait to see what everyone got in store for 2006…

So, who won?

75, 222 and 1721(Pre rookie team we started at Howell High School). They used our 2004 robot and played this years game. AND WON. The robot won the event TWICE. Go start pre-rookie teams and maybe your robot will win an event twice too. Henrys(222s driver) driving was beyond amazing. The event was awesome overall and thanks to 365 and 316 for hosting it.

Remember B-Rat, Henry is nothing without me! We were racking up tetras like mad in the finals!!! I’d just like to say thanks to team 1721(pre rooks) for picking us and team 75 for joining us also! We wanted you guys to have another chance! :wink: Team 1721, you guys were AMAZING today. I hope your school will be proud of you! Anyways, thanks to teams 365 and 316 for an awesome event!! And Henry, we did it man, UNDEFEATED!!!

Yeah Bharat, I just take Brian places… he scores the points :smiley:

Its good to “retire” that competition at a perfect 3-0 for the three years I have been there.

Duel is always a great competition with great teams and even better people. Hopefully I will be able to come back next year to watch as an alum…

Thank you 1721 and 75 for being such a solid alliance amids the daunting 8th seed.
Also, thank you to 365 and 316 for such a great competition.
