Better to post late than never I suppose. Peak Performance 2019 is just around the corner (this Saturday, 9/14). We have 30 teams and 34 robots competing this year from Washington, Oregon and Idaho! You can find the (inter)stellar team list* at www.thebluealliance.com/event/2019wapp
The event will be streamed on FIRSTWA Red
We’ll be playing Destination: Deep Space (Presented by the Boeing Company) with a couple of special rules updates this year:
- The playoffs will be 8 alliances of 4 teams each (CMP Style)
- We’re adding a new field personnel role and rule to allow a 3rd hatch panel to be loaded into the loading station during Sandstorm:
LOADING STATION ATTENDANT - A designated field volunteer who may start the match holding one (1) HATCH PANEL from their ALLIANCE STATION at the alliance’s request, and will insert it into the LOADING STATION during the SANDSTORM PERIOD if a HATCH PANEL is removed from the LOADING STATION.
5.1.1 G: Before the match, each alliance may request up to one LOADING STATION ATTENDANT for each LOADING STATION in the ALLIANCE STATION. The LOADING STATION ATTENDANT will re-load a HATCH PANEL into their designated LOADING STATION during SANDSTORM PERIOD if a HATCH PANEL is removed. At the end of the SANDSTORM PERIOD, all LOADING STATION ATTENDANTS will return any hatch panels they have in their possession to the HATCH PANEL HOLDERS in the ALLIANCE STATION.
Note: It is the alliance’s responsibility to both request a LOADING STATION ATTENDANT and ensure that they load a new hatch panel if desired. Failure of the LOADING STATION ATTENDANT to re-load a hatch panel in a timely fashion during the SANDSTORM PERIOD will not constitute an ARENA FAULT.
The event is hosted by Apex Robotics 5803 and will be held at Seattle Christian School in SeaTac, WA this Saturday Sept 14th! Doors open at 7am, Opening Ceremonies at 8:30am and Playoffs start at 2pm and end with the Awards Ceremony at 5:30pm. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
*Decoder Ring for 2nd robot teams:
9991 = 2471B
9992 = 2910B
9994 = 4911B
9998 = 1318B
Peak Performance policy is to fill spots with as many unique teams as possible. Our 30 team limitation is pit spaces, and the 4 teams bringing 2nd robots will each have a 10x10 shared pit that must fit both of their robots to make this happen. We are always committed to finding ways to allow as many teams and students as possible play.
