It is my pleasure to announce that this weekend on the 21st and 22nd of August, we will be running the first ever Western Australia offseason event - the West Australian Robotics Playoffs (WARP).
16 teams will be competing at Curtin Stadium over the 2 day event, 11 of which are brand-new pre-rookie teams spanning metro and regional WA. Over the last few months, we’ve been assisting these new teams in building modified everybots to give these students their first ever FRC experience. We’ve also got a spare robot that we’ll be inviting members of the public to drive on the field between Qualification matches (including a few fun show matches ).
We’re playing WARP on a fully custom wooden field, with a custom FMS and some rule changes to fit our event. Right now, the event is on TBA (West Australian Robotics Playoffs (2021) - The Blue Alliance, data to be added soon), and you can watch the livestream at the links below. We’ll be starting at 8:30am AWST (Z+0800) on the 21st of August (Countdown).
Thank you so much for everyone that made this happen. See you this weekend!
