The ThunderBolts from Emek Hefer (FRC2630) are proud to host the Emek Hefer Encounter, on friday - 14.03.08 !!
This is a pre-regional event open to all teams, intended to give everyone a taste of the game before the actual Regional and create an opportunity for teams to work together and get to know each other.
Teams may compete with a second Overdrive robot they built, but also with robots from previous years.
Veteran teams: Please contact us - we are trying to get simple rolling chassis for rookie teams to compete with.
Rookie teams: Contact us - we are trying to get simple rolling chassis for rookie teams to compete with.**
Teams are invited to send a few students with their robot and tools on thursday evening have them spend the night at emek-hefer (most likely at the gym with sleeping bags) so that you do not need to wake up very early to pack your robot and tools.
I’m sorry, but the date is practically set in stone due to the fact that the gym we are using is only available to us that day… sorry!
Nofar - a team without an overdrive robot (even if they stripped parts from older robots) can still just bring in a simple chassis with a profile in front to herd balls and youve got a pretty nice Lap+Herd robot that will be pretty competitive!
It will give your drivers a chance to practice laps and work with the other teams…
Currently only 1577 (SteamPunk) have contacted us regarding the chassis, but we hope to get at least 5 rolling chasses.
We plan to either have them available as a 1-per-team chassis, or we if we don’t have enough then we will opt for a rotation between the teams who wish to participate but do not have their own robot.
obviousley teams who who brought their own single chassis will not have to rotate their robot with some other chassis-less team (unless they want to! GP FTW!)
