Introducing - MidKnight Mayhem!

Of course students may volunteer! :slight_smile:

Not yet - I can publish a teams-we-have-so-far-list - We’ll be emailing the currently registered teams with some more info soon.

Hope I can drop in on this event Friday night/Saturday. Looks like a fun time :slight_smile:

When will volunteers get info on it?

We’re working on organizing 1923’s students into volunteer groups and such first, so all I can say is “Soon”.

If you volunteer, we’re more than likely going to use you, so don’t make other plans for June 29th yet! :slight_smile:

We just signed up. This event looks to be fun.

I heard some rumors that the TCNJ district will be going away next year; are you hoping to host a district next year? That would be great.

Glad to have you!

As far as I’m aware MAR has already found a replacement for TCNJ, but it’s something I wouldn’t mind thinking about! We have not been approached about that, though.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank the Monty Madness crew for letting us talk about MidKnight Mayhem every five seconds.

We’ve been asked to post what teams are currently registered, so here’s who is in our system as of this moment - (there are also some teams that have told us they’re signing up but have not done so yet! :slight_smile: )

This event is a dream come true for our team, so we’d like to thank you all for your support. We’re so excited to be hosting. Who else is ready to party with us?! :slight_smile:

Looking forward to being there. Can’t get enough of this game, best one in years!!

Anyone know how full this is currently? 1640 is interested, but we’re wondering how much longer we have to scramble a summer crew together.

What’s the pre-rookie policy?

1676 hopes there’s still room! Our mentors polled team members a few days ago, and there seems to be a lot of interest, so we should be signing up soon! :smiley:

I heard this morning there were 24 teams registered with room for about 10 more.

I’m sure Libby or Katie will chime in with information about MidKnight Mayhem’s pre-rookie policy.

We have 27 now, capping at 36!

We hadn’t decided on a prerookie “policy”, but email us at the midknightmayhem@gmail account and we can talk!

1640 has just thrown its hat into the ring (a blue fedora with yellow band, of course)! We look forward to seeing our friends at MidKnight Mayhem.

Updated Team List - we are now at 30!

Invoices just went out thanks to our lovely school advisor, but we still have space for 6 more teams!
(And more if we really have the interest, but it’ll be cozy. :wink: )

Excited to have our neighbors coming!

Official event agenda to be sent out & posted in the next 24 hours or so, once the entire committee has given me the all-clear.

I think I’ve said this a million times by now, but this literally is a dream come true - for me, for the committee, and for the team. Thank you all so much for helping us making this happen, and so quickly! The FIRST community is an awesome thing. We decided to make this a ‘real thing’ the first week in April, and this has all come together so fast. It’s been crazy, but crazy in a good way. I’m so looking forward to the 29th and all the Mayhem it will bring. :slight_smile:

What are the mentor matches going to look like? Is it going to be 1923’s practice robot driven by a different mentor drive team each time or a specific set of matches right before lunch where mentors drive their team’s robot in a match against other mentors?

Joe,

I believe we are going to start a new qualification schedule with the matches during lunch time after we are finished with the original qualification schedule and alliance selections. Then,each team will enter an all-mentor drive team to drive their robot during this new schedule for a match. After we go through a round of the mentor matches, we will resume the original schedule with the elimination matches. This way, mentor matches won’t affect your qualification score, no matter how good or bad the mentors might be at driving :]

Hi Joe,

Abhishektha nailed it. We’re doing sign-ups in the morning when teams arrive, for the mentor-matches where YOUR team will field YOUR robot… with a grown-up drive team. It’ll be before elims, and we won’t insert them into the qual schedule either- these will be their own independent matches. We definitely don’t want mentor matches to affect the team’s rank. Once we know who’s signed up, we’ll be able to generate a more specific schedule.
