See everyone there!

Awesome! Thanks for posting. 1923 has also registered to field our practice robot as a second team (Yet-To-Be-Named) to allow for more students to get pit/drive team experience, but we haven’t yet appeared on the list for some reason. Expect a 1924 in there as well. :slight_smile:

I’ll have you know that in 2006 we actually posted the thread in February.

Awesome, can’t wait!

Can’t wait to volunteer and see a buch of MARbots I had to miss this year!
