Engineer on team #47, Chief Delphi, from Pontiac Central High School and Delphi Automotive Systems.
Early reports from the competition have the following
Champs with scores of 488 & 620 (rumored to be seconds
from breaking 700 barrier):
Finalist with scores of 420 & 560:
469,288,68,302 (maybe 308 – can’t read my writing ;-), 128
Word is that Beatty/Hammond is about as dominant as
they have ever been.
Many strong teams. Not many limbo bots, even #45, a
sometimes limbo machine, ran as a ball handling bridge bot.
Very exciting elimination rounds. Great venue. Loud
house. Great time was has by all.
Can’t wait for Great Lakes Regional to come around!
I stick by my highest score at the Great Lake
prediction, though I think Beatty/Hammond, Wildstang
and The TechnoKats are all going to Chicago. If they
manage to pair ups by some twist of fate, I am not sure
all that the Motor City can withstand the onslaught.
But… We’ll give it our level best.
