Congrats to 341, 25, 1640, 75, 433, 3142, 3929, 1218, 1676, 2180, 2016, and 486, for qualifying from the MAR Championships to go on to St. Louis next week! These past few days were certainly some of the most exciting and exhausting that I have ever experienced. What teams from FiM also qualified from this weekend?
I’m not familiar with the qualification process. How do the MSC or MAR teams qualify for Championship ?
Here is the MAR Process, it’s similar to FIM.
3 District Championship Winners.
1 District Engineering Inspiration.
2 District Chairman’s Award Winners.
1 District Rookie Inspiration.
From there, the next 5 Highest Ranked Teams Based on Points Qualify for the Championship. If one of the top 5 is already going to the Championship or was qualified through another process their spot is re-awarded to the next highest ranked team until 12 teams from the MAR region are awarded.
As Dustin said, FiM is similar to MAR.
There are more teams in Michigan, so the number of CMP slots is higher. 18 teams earn slots, as follows:
3 MSC Chairman’s Awards
1 MSC Engineering Inspiration Award
1 MSC Rookie All Star Award
3 MSC Winning Alliance teams (or 4, if the winning alliance used a back-up robot)
Then the balance of the slots are filled in point-rank order. If any of the eight or nine teams above were registered or qualified for CMP by another method (for example, Hall of Fame teams), then the next team in the point rankings is substituted in their place. That happened this year when 67 (a HoF team) was a member of the MSC winning alliance, so eleven Michigan teams qualified for CMP based on point rank. 51 is also a HoF team, so there are 20 Michigan teams listed in the post by jyh947 above.
