Georgian College Event Winners Ice Cubed & Gravenhurst High School, and Durham College Event Winners WAFFLES & Doc Botics will all be looking to add another win to their record in advance of the Pronvincial Championship. Additionally, fresh off their victory at the University of Waterloo Event (defeating the powerful Alliance of Teams 2056 and 1241), Sir Lancerbot will be looking to continue their streak of success.

Merge Robotics and Falcon Automation, Finalists at the Ryerson University and Georgian College Events respectively, will both be looking for redemption, while** Lo-Ellen** and King’s Robotics will be looking to make a splash at their first event of the season.

Finally, we have two incredible all-girls teams joining us: the Afghan Dreamers (who’ve generated quite a bit of press across North America), and their mentor team SWAT!

On a personal note, as an Executive of the Carleton University FIRST Alumni Association, I’m extremely happy to have all 5 Ottawa-area teams (2706, 2994, 3543, 4783, and 7267) joining us for the weekend!
