Engineer on team #237, sie h2o bots, from Watertown high school ct and sieman co.

There must be more to the reason that the list of all the teams listed at the regionals on the FIRST site other than temporary down.
The list is usefull to each team that needs to plan strategy and maybe FIRST wants to make the game harder by denying vital information

That is incorrect. There are actually technical difficulties, and it is not as high a priority as you may think in lieu of two regionals this weekend.

There is still a published list (allowed for by FIRST) at

and

Yep - that’s it. I finally see the light. The conspiracy continues. Dean had the list taken off just to spite all the teams - his never ending quest.
Come on - sometimes this determination to find as many faults as possible in FIRST gets a little ridiculous and old.
Thanks for the chuckle though.
Good luck team 237 and to all the teams competing this weekend!

Nah… Their web CGI script is completely screwed up. It only lists a third of the teams (when it WAS up). It’s not a conspiracy – it’s just web incompetence.

Or maybe it IS a conspiracy.
