SCRIW IX (South Carolina Robotics Invitational & Workshops 2019)

Oh, hey, we should probably do a thread too, right?

For the ninth year, teams 1293 and 2815 are nuts enough to proudly present

SCRIW IX

The South Carolina Robotics Invitational & Workshops is the Carolinas’ oldest off-season competition, where we will bring together over two dozen robots for a one-day tournament of DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE presented by The Boeing Company.

SCRIW IX is October 26, 2019 at Dreher High School, same spot as last year. Here’s what to expect:

  • We’ll be playing DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE on a regulation FRC field, with FTA onsite.
  • We expect to play our normal four-team-four-alliance playoff, to ensure everyone gets plenty of qualification matches and ensure nobody has to draft a stricken robot.
  • We sincerely hope there isn’t a natural disaster that requires the fundraising of the Mentor Match, but it’s happened somewhere every year since 2015 (three of those times, within the Carolinas) so we will plan to hold it.
  • We are working with some local folks on an excellent set of workshops and demos from elsewhere in the FIRST progression of programs.

Registration is $350 if you register and pay before July 1, $400 after. B-team entries with a second robot are $200, and if you’re loaning a second robot to a 2020 rookie team there’s no charge.

You can register for SCRIW IX here. See you there!

And if you want to be social, we have a Facebook event you can invite your friends with!

Can’t wait to play again with everybody! The kids enjoyed it a lot last year. I think some 342 spirit rubbed off on our younger team members.

We will be coming back, and I believe this time we have convinced some PCH friends to join us.
Let’s get the best NC/PCH/SC teams together for SCRIW this year :slight_smile:

One of our favorite competitions. It gives rookie members a taste of what a regional is like.
We can’t wait!

is sign up first come first serve? or is it on a invitation basis?

First-come, first-served.

And speaking of first-come, how about a way-too-early team list?

1102 - M’Aiken Magic
2815 - Blue Devil Mechanics

25 spots left. :wink:

A tsunami of invoices just went out. If you’re not on this list and you think you should be, or if you’re still missing an invoice, do let me know. :slight_smile:

We’ve had the list change quite a bit! 1102 had to scratch, but their fellow Georgia buddies 2974 have joined us along with 4451 and a second 342 machine!

4533’s B-team had to scratch, so we’re still at 22 robots. You should join us too!

are we officially assigned the 9999? we wanted to get the bumper numbers done as soon as we can. noticed all b teams were 9999 until recently so just wanted to verify

I confirmed it to other folks on 342, guess the word never got to you.

Yes, you’re officially 9999. :slight_smile:

Oh yep
Last i heard from my mom was she wasnt sure
That was like 2 weeks ago however :man_shrugging:t3:

We just confirmed our first pre-rookie team for SCRIW IX! Welcome 8137, the Byting Bulldogs from Georgetown HS. They’ll be competing with the Pandamaniacs’ machine that weekend.

For clarity:

  • 6693 plans be in FMS as 9993, due to limitations around inactive teams.
  • 8137 plans be in FMS as 1293, as they’ll be using 1293’s 2019 robot.

We’ve still got room for you to register, but do it quickly!
