I am in need of a list of all the teams attending the Silicon Valley and SoCal Regionals. I have been searching around for one, but my attemps have been unsuccessful. If you know where I could get one, or when a list will become avaible please contact me at [email protected] Also if your team will be attending either of these regionals it would be superawesome if you could email me. Thanks muchO.

It is likely that they will release the list later then shipping. So Let’s just get a sense of who’s going to the California regionals.

Team 192- Gunn Robotics Team will be attending Silicon Vallet Regional

Anyone else? How about the SoCal regional?

I’ve got a list of all the teams & competitions, but I don’t want to post because I don’t want to get anyone (including myself) in trouble. All I’ll say is that both CA regionals are slightly above the average for regional attendence.

Perhaps Mike knows someone on Motorola’s regional
planning committee? Hey, perhaps he is ON the regional
planning committee.

In either case, I can easily imagine how an indiscreet
message on these forums can cause a lot of grief for a
lot of people – how quickly folks forget my
mischievous “Game Unveiled Early” posting.

In any case, I am intrigued by the cryptic posting
about the CA regionals having above average attendance.

Does he just mean that the regionals are sold out?
Maybe something more is being implied?

Joe, you give me too much credit. I’m not on any planning committee, I’m just a software engineer.

I may get in trouble posting the list because I got it from someone who got it from someone who… I’m not sure if the original person was supposed to keep it secret or not. That’s why I’m not making it public.

All that was meant by “above average” is that I computed the mean & median of the attendence at each regional and both CA regionals were above that mark. I have no idea if they’re sold out or not, or if any more teams have signed up since I got the list. But I’m assuming the list is accurate since whenever someone has posted what regionals they’re attending, it matched what I have.

When Mike speaks of “above average attendance”, I am pretty sure he is just speaking of the number of teams competing in these regionals.

Both the Silicon Valley & Southern California Regionals (as well as most other regionals)did hit their “cap” and were closed during registration.

There are 48 teams in the Southern Cal Regional
There are 52 teams in the Silicon Valley Regional

  • about 10 teams competing in both

FIRST is handling many things right now (regional logistics / planning, questions & updates, chairman’s award submissions, & much more) so they may not have gotten to posting team lists on the web yet.
