65th. You could be the lowest ranked team, get picked by an alliance because you add something to the alliance that the alliance captain thinks is beneficial, end up as a finalist and have a wildcard fall to you.
There will be a lot of wildcards that go unused at this event. There are a lot of good teams that will be there and we could easily see a situation where everyone that is in the finals, regardless of the result, would qualify for champs.
The Blarglefish will be much improved and hoping to bring some heat to Lone Star. We have a faster high goal shot, a new low goal shot, and you’ll likely see some tower-scaling Blarglefish throughout the weekend. There’s a ton of top-notch teams competing in Houston…hopefully we can earn our keep and try to earn one of those Wildcards!
Though the Robot Competition looks to be fierce. I think the biggest win will be finding a Parking Place within 1/2 mile. With all the construction, show up early and bring your walking shoes.
Next be prepared for Saturday evening when there is a Concert in the Toyota Center. (Not going to advertise who) So knowing the parking lots, most will charge you $10 for the day, but at a set time the price will go UP and they’ll probably make you pay for the Evening price also.
Then we’re in for the best part, with a major event downtown, the TRAFFIC. :yikes: With all the road construction it’s going to be a major mess. :ahh:
Good Luck to all the Teams at the Competition, and Good Luck to all the Mentors and parents driving to the event.
