The Greater Toronto Regional is quite the show. All the volunteers and organizers work hard to make sure everyone enjoys themselves, and I’m proud to say the regional has always been very successful with this goal.
Yan, we’re quite glad to have you and your team back.
Will this year’s pits still be in the small side arena? I use small as a relative term since it is very spacious, well lit, and contains MANY nice projections of what’s going on next door. This was a very nice setup last year and I much prefer it to 2003, when a few teams such as 639 and 188 had to set up in some small little corner in the main arena.
On that note, I will miss 188’s presence. Will some members show up to watch anyway?
We will also miss 639’s professionalism and gracious help at GTAR this year. Who knows, we might have finally had a chance to actually team up in an alliance this year instead of always squaring off against each other =). I think we have quite complementary robots, after seeing yours at Finger Lakes.
There should be one or two members of the team who arent going to California there volunteering, as well as a host of alumni who will be doing everything from refeering to inspections to field resetting.
Everything aside, it will be great to have team 639 with us again at the GTA regional. You guys always spice up the regional with your spiffy red color. I can already see that tis going to be a lot of fun this year!. See your there
