Well, no one else has started a thread on us so far, so I thought I would go ahead.
Team 492 will be returning hoping to fare a bit better then we did last time, at least competition-wise.
I would like to welcome our WAY out of town guests, team 272 comin’ all the way over from PA! Now thats a good commute.
I would also like to welcome back all the returning teams, teams that are making there way to the PACNW for the first time (I think we got a few “new” veteran Cali teams, including team 192,) but most of all I would like to welcome the truly new teams who are just this year experiencing their first year of FIRST.
The PACNW is not only known for being competitive but is even better known for being a great bunch of teams who are just plain nice to one another, personally I think we got the best combo possible. So, this year, lets live up to our legend and have the best event so far.
On a slightly more downtrodden note, FIRST WEEK AGAIN?!? Come on, who has it out for us in FIRST headquarters… we know your in there…
I’m one of the team leaders for our brand new first robotics team:)
we’ll be making our way all the way from Surrey, BC.
It’s our first year competing in first, but a number of the members of our team have experience competing in a somewhat similar but WAYYYY smaller competition called Skills Canada. This is going to be a blast!
Yes, team 272 Cyber-Crusader Robotics will “Go west young person, go west!”. This is our tenth year anniversary and we are very excited about coming to a new competition. Please drop by to say hello. Look for the old guy with green hair. Can’t wait, getting lots of sleep now because once the season starts I know we will get very little.
Yes! A big welcome to Team 2273 from Sullivan Heights! We’re looking forward to travelling down there with you. It will great to no longer be “THE” Canadian Team!
Portland is not only a great regional, but a great city. In fact we’ve had so much fun at PNW the last couple years that this summer my wife and I took our summer holidays down in Oregon (and scored a few of the last 1/2 price VEX kits at Radio Shack… and tax free too!)
Looking forward to getting together with you guys during build. Your presence now makes BC the #2 FIRST province in Canada.
Hey, team 1983 wil also be there. This is our first year in FIRST and none of us have any past experience in FIRST, but many have taken robotics classes. We are all extremely excited to be competing and have a coach who has a lot of previous experience in FIRST. Furthermore, I’d like to thank team 492 for hosting the kickoff last saturday; it was fun and i met some of the team members including the president. You all were very helpful and I hope to see you guys down in Portland.
