To all teams going to Annapolis

To all teams going to the Annapolis Regional,

Team 303 is offering a public database: we plan on having it completed by the end of Thursday, at the VERY latest: more likely it will be available noon to mid-afternoon Thursday.

Each robot’s abilities will be documented, and verified by Team 303: two separate, independent students will independently receive data, to eliminate the infamous:” What does you’re robot do?” and getting 2 different responses.

All data will go through a final screening process, so that this information will be accurate: 303 will be using this information too, so you can be assured that the information you receive will be of high quality: We would never give you information we wouldn’t use ourselves.

There is only one fee for joining this database: offer your robot’s information, as accurate as possible, when our scouts ask you about it: this will happen two hours after the gates open on Thursday: the faster we can gather information, the faster we can get this database out to y’all. If anyone is interested in helping out, send me an email at [email protected].

I plan on doing the same thing at the J&J Mid-Atlantic, if this works out well. If anyone would like a copy, just stop by and see me, I’ll be printing copies for every team. I think that when everyone goes into a match with a plan, everyone benefits. Hopefully, this can help all teams plan ahead for strategy purposes, and everyone can benefit and help each other by quickly deciding upon tactics at the beginning of every match.

I am not going to acquire information via these forums, as I have found information is much more accurate when received in person. However, I hope to hear from anyone interested in helping out, so I can get a jump start on gathering info. If all goes well, I realistically expect to have a working database done by noon.

Any questions, feel free to post: and if you are interested in working with me on Thursday, send me a PM or an email. Thanks in advance for anyone willing to share info Thursday morning. Those who help out will get their copies in advance (before they go into mass production.)
