Post M.A.R.C.

I decided to make a thread to see if everyone had as much of a good time playing at MARC, as we did hosting it! If you have any stories you want to share, or thank, or congratulate someone, do it here as well!

I’d like to thank Steve Ketron for all the hard work and determination he puts into these event, he’s an awesome mentor! We had quite a way of thanking him, by covering his car in game peaces dating back to 06’! :stuck_out_tongue: (With the exceptions of 07’ and 10’) I’ll attach a picture.

I’d also like to thank all the teams for coming, if it wasn’t for you guys, well, then no one could have fun! :stuck_out_tongue: I’d also(Pardon my repetitiveness.) like to thank all the volunteers and people who stayed after and helped clean up. You guys sped the clean up up by hours. Heck! I think we should thank all the volunteers, period! :slight_smile:

And, of course, last but not least, I’d like to congratulate Teams 68, 107, 469, and 2834. (Had to organize it by number! :P)

How did you get the trackball in there…

We had to push the passenger seat all the way back and lean it down. The open sunroof was for the inflatable logo. Also, if you look close enough, there’s a 2006 game piece inside the 2009 game piece. Unfortunately, we were caught part way through. We quickly finished and then cleared it out after some pictures.

Hahah, yeah, it was all done out of good spirit and fun! That Trackball just took a good shove and “Pop goes the weasel!” :stuck_out_tongue:

This was a great competition, keep up the great work guys!

Spectacular event. Kudos to the organizers and the volunteers.

As always a fantastic event, very well run and a good time. Keep up the good work.

I very much enjoyed our first visit to MARC. Well run, good value, and very competitive.

Had a great time. Thanks to everyone who helped make the M.A.R.C. a great event!

Ah, such a great time I had at my first MARC! Thanks everybody! Also, such a beautiful thing we did to Mr. Ketrons car! xD Glad to have been a part of it.

Lightning Robotics had a fantastic time at MARC! Thank you to everyone who helped make it possible!

A special thanks to our alliance partners 1718, 3322, and 910! 1718 and 3322 it was great getting to compete with you guys again, and 910 for the first time!

Congrats to 469, 68, 2843 and 107!

It was my first time at MARC and i have to say it was a blast! A little hot in the gym but hey, what can you do? Hope to return next year!

As always M.A.R.C. was a fantastic event and our team really enjoyed it. Many thanks to the event coordinators, and all the volunteers that make this event on par with any district event that we attend. It was great competing with so many great teams and look forward to next year.

The Ultimate Protection Squad, 1675, had a fantastic time at MARC! Though we were disappointed to watch the elims from the sidelines, we were ecstatic to be able to WATCH the elims from the sidelines and hopefully bring some of that Michigan ingenuity back to Wisconsin for next year =)

To be able to play with/against the teams that we admire so much was definitely worth the trip. We learned a lot and made some fantastic new friends along the way. Definitely expect to see us again next year!
