The last email we got about food said there were 38 teams expected. Must have been a few last minute additions that didnt make the website yet. Looking forward to dusting off our old bot and seeing if it all still works!

Anyone know if they are planning on streaming the event on Twitch? I’m guessing not, seeing as they didn’t last year.

BTW - 2771 will be there.

The OP is now a wiki so if your team is not in the list and you will be there go ahead and add it

Is there a stream?

No

Is there anyone who could post result and/or draft order?

I’ll have to see if we still have a picture of the elimination brackets. I know that out number 2 alliance had a great run and a lot of fun making it to the finals. The event was a good time as always and we’ll be back next year!

As a side note, it was awesome to finally team up with our alliance partners. Working with our neighbors to the south 3546 and having the opportunity see the strategy 2767 employs in action was a perfect way to end a season. The raw power of that 2767 machine is outstanding. Our last climb of the finals we got bumped by them and were both out of position, Cory asked “if we climb we’ll hit you, do you care?” I replied that we were never using our 2019 robot again, he said they weren’t either and gave the go. Watching their robot lift ours and then bend all kinds of ridgid parts like they were made of rubber was really impressive. In the end we both slipped out of position and took the silver, but man what a ride.

It was a great time playing against you in quarters. Definitely a good send off for our robot.

Part of the reason we didn’t care about our bot falling was because it was all banged up from you guys playing defense on us. We had fun trying to find a way to get away from you though, even if we kept driving into another trap.

It’s always fun to watch your climb too, glad I got to see it one last time.

oh yikes. Was this the first time all season that happened?

The arm that comes flying out with the suction cup is chome moly and turned out to be quite resilient and doesn’t appear to be damaged. The carrier that goes up and down got twisted inside it frame guide as you can see.

I knew when the climbed started that it was going to be bad! It happened before, just never this bad before.
