National Division List Availability??

Student on team #111, Wildstang, from Wheeling High School and Motorola.

Any idea when the lists of the teams in each division at nationals would be made puclicly available?? I can’t wait to see who’s where, or even how they make the divisions. Randomly? Geographical? Experience? I am also failing to locate a list of teams that will be attending each particular regional. I eagerly await to see who will be joining the PERHAPS sparse gathering of teams that choose Midwest over Great Lakes. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

According to Eric (no quotes though)

Since teams are not definite/confirmed until they show up… it’s likely that FIRST won’t generate the list until then (so as to not have 71 teams in a division… 80 in another and so forth)

Also-- it’s their intention to keep it “random”… it won’t be regionalized…or by experience for that matter from what was said…
