Gateway Robotics Challenge 2022 - Sep 24th - STL

Hey Everyone,

Excited to share details on the 2022 Gateway Robotics Challenge which will take place September 24th at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO (Just west of STL). This event is co-hosted by 4329 - Lutheran Roboteers, 4256 - Cyborg Cats, and 1706 - Ratchet Rockers.

Please see website for more details and the signup link here: https://www.gatewayroboticschallenge.com/

Registration works as follows
Veteran Team Full Registration = $425
Veteran Team Sponsoring a Pre-Rookie Team = $250
Pre-Rookie Team = $125

If you are a veteran team and provide a robot to a pre-rookie team for this event, registration is discounted as shown.
A pre-rookie team is one who has not competed in an FRC and plans to compete in 2023.

Looking forward to playing with everyone there and everyone should keep an eye out for some triple traversal opportunities (some teams may have some tricks up their sleeve for this event… :wink:)

Typically in the past GRC has used a 1-8, 8-1, 1-8 draft pick but modified so that 1-8 can not pick within the alliance captains, by what I have seen this has not been decided yet but I think its worth mentioning the possibility.

Slots are still open for the remainder of this week.

Question. You really need RI’s?
Also, do you need any photographers?

I’m not up to date on the volunteering but I do know we do have at least 1 event photographer signed up. For robot inspections I believe we have positions but they will be pretty laid back as we will only be having safety lookovers done to make sure any glaring issues are solved, it will be expected at this event that teams will follow all rules (+5lbs weight allowance is given) with a trust system, similar to what is done at IRI.

Oaky. I was going to come from Fort Wayne, IN to help out. I am an RI, but photography is my go to job.
