I’d like to put a word in for 6328 Mechanical Advantage, and 78 Air Strike. Both teams competed at the Rhode Island District event this weekend and had incredibly well built robots that consistently performed well.
Going to put a recommendation in for 4564. Winners at WPI, and Finalists at Pine Tree. Their robot is sleek, clean, effective, well driven and easily one of my favorites this year. Not to mention they have a great team that has always been fun and easy to work with.
Also like to mention the winners at Pine Tree, 5687 (Outliers) and 133 (BERT) who were tremendous all weekend long. Both have already won an event earlier this season and will certainly be tearing it up at DCMP!
I would like to mention 6329, the Bucks’ Wrath. They are one of the fastest and most efficient switch bots I’ve seen. They definetly held their ground in the finals of Pine Tree this past weekend. Their drivers know what they’re doing and they definelty deserve some recognition for their performance, not to mention this is only their second season as a team.
Bucks Wrath easily was the best robot at the event and was very hard to beat. We had the misfortune of playing against them 4 times, two in quals and two in elims. However our one match with them was amazing and we wouldn’t have been able to beat them that one match if it wasn’t for playing with them. Also the drive team was top notch and a pleasure to work with.
4513 has won their second event this season, picked up their first Quality award, and are 2nd in the PNW district rankings, all with a 1 CIM/side drivetrain. No, im not joking. (Comp bot is on the right side.)
5803 and 2990 are some of the best shooter bots in the PNW and some of the best anywhere.
4980 has by far built one of my favorite bots. Simple and effective, almost beating out the #1 alliance at WV.
1983 got their head back in the game, scooping up another win and making it look easy while at it.
2910: Swerve. I shouldn’t need to say more.
3218 has had a breakout season. Finalists at GP, their bot and strats have been paying off.

In Ontario, there have been a few pretty incredible breakout teams this season:
1360 - Orbit Robotics
After an awesome reveal video on Premeire Night, Orbit dominated both of their District Events (Georgian College & York University), ranking 1st at both with a record of 33-3-1 this season. They went on to win both those events, and just for good measure, also picked up the Chairman’s Award at York. It’s only their third year as an official team, and they’re already making a huge mark on the FRC community in Ontario.
4917 - Sir Lancerbot
Sir Lancerbot have been building themselves up as an amazing team over the past few years. They achieved quite a bit of success last year, winning the Windor-Essex Event, ranking 10th at Provincial Championships, and making it all the way to the Curie Division Finals in St. Louis. This year, they’re continuing their upward trend, ranking 2nd at the University of Waterloo event, and defeating Alliance #1 (consisting of teams 2056 & 1241) to win the event. I can’t wait to see these guys compete at North Bay this weekend
