Orange County Regional (2016)

Well, that was a pleasant surprise:

ON TIME through the day! (Meant that instead of the “hurry up and wolf your food down” lunch the volunteers have been getting at other events I’ve been to this year, we had time to relax, chit-chat, and wander a bit.) That’s a HUGE thanks to the teams, queuers, and reset crew for keeping this event moving.

(And I really hope I didn’t just jinx tomorrow…)

BTW, for anybody wondering what that odd smell was after matches finished today, and whether it was related to the smoke the MC was talking about: Yep, it was. Now you know what a fried BAG motor smells like (and I really wish I didn’t know now… goes with “magic white smoke” as something to avoid). Just really happy that the extinguisher didn’t have to make an appearance over there.

Kudos for bringing in Garner Holt as a guest speaker. He is one of the hidden gems in the Inland Empire.

check out www.garnerholt.com if the name doesn’t ring a bell.

And that huge thanks to the teams and crew for keeping the event on time now applies to today as well! When you’re ahead enough for Cupid Shuffle AND Cotton-Eye Joe back to back…and it’s still early in the day’s qual matches.

Elims had the usual dose of excitement (including the third finals match), and when every team in the finals makes St. Louis (including TWO rookie teams!), that’s just the icing on the cake for a great event.

To all the rest of the refs there, it was a great pleasure working with this crew. I’ll see y’all next year if not before, I hope.

I will echo what Erich stated OC was very enjoyable and for an Inaugural Regional I found it to be top notch. The volunteer crew was wonderful and everyone was great, Its a great venue too for any teams on the fence about it next year. Does get a bit warm but other than that it was great. Easy parking, nice outside areas, plenty of food, great Pit area and a nice practice field elevated from actual Pits…the arena had nice seating too. Thanks to Tigears for hosting it.

I thought all the teams did an excellent job and that rookies teams were amazing. Lots of rookies going to St Louis congratulations. Very competitive throughout.

The finals were…

Finals 3…
3309 3476 6220 (134)
5124 1836 6072 (122)

Very hard fought finals was anyone’s game in the end, glad they all get to go. Good luck in WC’s.

Any video of elims?

I know the event was streamed, can’t remember what site though. I know they’d have the archive up.

Highlights Code Orange Team 3476 FIRST FRC Robotics 2016 Stronghold


Highlights of Code Orange Team 3476 playing in the FIRST FRC Robotics 2016 Stronghold Competition at the Los Angeles and Orange County Regionals. The robot crosses the Defense and shoots a high goal for a 20-point Autonomous. Crosses Defenses quickly in TeleOp. Shoots reliably over any defensive robot from any location using a rotating turret and video camera.
