Collegiate and partial-collegiate Ri3D teams, join us for round 2 of the FIRST Alumni Collegiate Competition (FACC)! https://forms.gle/pQrZX76ab4t4mqZq8 We’ll add more information here as we get it, but the sign up form is all we’ve got right now!

Update 9/4: The competition will be at Ferris State University, in late January or early February 2020. If your Ri3D team has a strong preference for a certain weekend, let FACC know: firstalumnicollegiatecomp@gmail.com. We’re also working on getting a little more clarification for the volunteer profile section.

Update 9/19: The email we copied above has a typo! Here’s the correct email: firstalumnicollegiatecomp@gmail.com.

The organizers are asking that every Ri3D team member complete 10 hours of volunteer time with FIRST. They’re asking that team members track their hours at firstinspires.org on their volunteer profile. Offseason volunteer hours, which can’t be tracked in this tool, can be reported separately and count towards the 10 hours requirement.

It also sounds like there should be a website up and running in the next few weeks.

Pretty late for a post, but we’re excited for the competition so we figured we’d send one more reply. Website’s up (https://firstalumnicollegiatecomp.org/), and the competition is set for February 2nd at Ferris State University! We know @firstroboticsosu’ll be there with us, hope to see you there! The register link is on the website.

Thank you for doing this and for putting on the livestream!!! I’m sure that this will be valuable to scouts, strategists, and anyone interested in seeing what the game may look like come week 1.

All matches are now uploaded to YouTube!

Thank you everyone who watched and to FACC for organizing the event!

Some analysis on my end:

Lots of G10 penalties to start but settled down
Lots of power cells being jammed especially in the beginning
While field is not to spec some power cells were bouncing out when shot into the upper port.
We had 3 robots climb and balance which was pretty awesome!
This game definitely has potential
