Here it is again!
This week I will be watching Central Valley mostly as well Muskegon. What teams and events are you excited to see this week?
Here it is again!
A lot of high quality bots will be there. It will be a very competitive event
New York Tech Valley
Central Valley: Cheesy Poofs, Madtown, and Greybots should be interesting to say the least
Whichever one isn’t “postponed”.
We’ll be competing at San Diego, but I’ll definitely have an eye on CVR.
can’t tell if your being sarcastic or not, it was postponed.
St. Joe (v2)
San Diego, Central Valley, and St. Joe- keeping up with the old team and friends, keeping up to date on California, and keeping up with the new team and seeing their competition in the Indiana district.
Connor only knows how to speak in sarcasm.
I was going to watch tech valley, too. rip
Gonna be watching the PCH Columbus event as much as I can because my old team is competing there. Otherwise Central Valley should definitely be interesting
Wasn’t St. Joe a week 2?
254 robot reveal is today!! I’m so excited
Nope, Bloomington! I was back at home for a day for the Del Mar Regional though and after a day of travel back to college, going only for Sunday didn’t seem like a good idea.
If you’re not at an event, I’d highly recommend watching Finger Lakes. The event was already pretty competitive, but with the additions of teams displaced from Tech Valley and CNY the event is wild.
- 340, 3015, and 2791 all have phenomenal, top tier robots this season
- Debuts of upper mid-tier teams like 870, 3171, and 5254
- NY’s large mid-tier is hella strong, with 1507, 1559, 1551, 1511, 1126, 1405, 639, 2638, 3003, 6300, 191, 4930 all playing
- The event is also getting the Brazilian cohort of 1156, 1860, 1772, and 5800, as well as 120 from Ohio and 4150 from Pennsylvania. 1156 in particular has a knack for winning regionals they are very much not the favorite at.
Without counting a number of decent teams that you could argue fit into the mid-tier group above, I’ve already named 24 teams. Not all of the mid-tier teams I listed will be having their best seasons, but I know for a fact some already have fantastic machines (see: 1507, 1559, 1551).
I’ll be at the North Shore district event in Reading, MA (fingers crossed the event happens), but I’ll be following FLR with great interest.
Do you know if there is a reveal video?
