With 59 rookie teams currently registered for the Championship event it’s sure to be a crazy event. A large majority of these teams won the Rookie All-Star award, but there are a few that did indeed win their regional competitions.
So we know that we will have about 15 rookies per division, I can see the battle for Highest Rookie Seed will be intense!
Who is going to be submitting for the Championship Rookie All-Star Award?
In the past, ALL Rookie teams at Championship are interviewed by judges for eligibility for all applicable awards. So there is no “submitting.”
Good luck to all the Rookie teams!
I’ll put a plug in here for the 8th Annual All Rookie Meet and Greet which will be held on Friday, April 27th from 6:15-6:45 pm (at the close of matches). We are still finalizing the location - and will provide that in an invitation that will be delivered to the Rookie Team Pits on Thursday morning. This event is hosted by FIRST Team 1511, Rolling Thunder. See the full announcement at : http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=105744
Team 4057 is excitingly looking forward to championships this year! We were chosen for Rookie All-star at Autodesk regional and we are all looking forward to the chance of visiting St. Louis. Good luck to all other rookie teams out there and we are happy to get a chance to see you guys there
I had the pleasure of meeting Team Tesla at the Silicon Valley Regional, and they guys and gals are very impressive.
At the same time, I am very happy to be a part of this rookie class, as a few of us started a rookie team here in the Kokomo, Indiana area. Look for team 3940, CyberTooth, in the Curie division with our purple powder-coated robot. The students are all excited to be able to compete with the best FRC teams in the world in St. Louis, and eager to make some new friends.
We even got to practice tonight at the TechnoKat (45) shop with some other local teams (234, 261, and 447) and pulled off a QUADRUPLE balance! (We’re the skinny practice robot in the middle with the illegal bumpers) That was fun!
I have the final count as 62 Rookie Teams! Congrats to all of you on your success so far!
I hope you’ll be able to make time to attend the All Rookie Meet and Greet on Friday at 6:15 (at the end of matches!) The event will end at 6:45 giving teams time to make it to the ball game for the first pitch!
Watch for the invitation in your pits on Thursday Morning!
